Investment Objectives

The objective of this Fund is to provide a high level of income, mostly in the form of dividends, and, to a lesser degree, long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in Canadian, and to a lesser extent, foreign income-producing securities. Any modification of the fundamental investment objective must be approved by the unitholders by a majority vote at a meeting called for this purpose.

Investment Strategy

In order to achieve its fundamental investment objective, the Fund invests in income-producing securities which may include, but are not limited to, dividend-paying equity securities, government and corporate bonds, preferred shares, income trusts and other securities primarily of Canadian issuers.
