Why does the Fonds temporarily freeze lump-sum contributions under certain conditions?

As it has done a number of times in the past, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ may limit the issuance of shares during the current fiscal year to maintain the balance of its business model.

When such a situation occurs, the Fonds announces the terms and conditions of the share issuance freeze to its savers. In so doing, the Fonds prioritizes existing subscription agreements that derive from payroll deductions, employer contributions, automatic bank transfers and HBP et LLP repayments. 

All the details pertaining to share issuance are set out in the Simplified Prospectus.
