Investment Objectives

The investment objective of the Canadian Equity Small Cap Pool is to provide long-term capital growth together with the preservation of capital by investing primarily in common shares of Canadian corporations, diversified over a broad range of companies. The primary emphasis will be on small market capitalization. Any change to the fundamental investment objectives must be approved by a majority of the votes cast by unitholders at a meeting called to consider the change.

Investment Strategy

The portfolio adviser will employ a disciplined management style designed to capture the returns and the diversification benefits of a broad cross section of primarily Canadian small/mid-cap companies. The portfolio adviser will pursue this objective by participating in the investment performance of a broad range of readily marketable Canadian common share securities.
