Tax credit reminder
If you meet the conditions set out in the prospectus, you are eligible for tax credits of 30%1 for labour-sponsored funds until the end of the tax year in which you turn 64 years of age. Note that by withdrawing your savings from the Fonds, in whole or in part, for retirement or disability purposes, you will no longer be eligible for these 30% tax credits on future contributions. This represents an additional tax savings of up to $1,500 per year until the end of the fiscal year in which you turn 64.1.
According to the redemption criteria for retirement, from the time you receive a retirement pension, you can submit a redemption request for the share you hold.
The shareholder must be at least 55 years of age, receive or be set to receive within three months of the request, a life annuity under a pension plan, an annuity under a registered retirement savings plan or a deferred profit-sharing plan or payments under a registered retirement income fund, unless such annuity or payment is received because of the death of his or her spouse.
