Offering of Funds

The securities of the labour-sponsored funds managed by BEST Capital Management Ltd. and its affiliates (“BEST”), and the securities of the investment funds managed by BEST Investment Counsel and its affiliates are described below as the “Funds”. The Funds are only offered for sale in the provinces and territories of Canada where they may lawfully be sold. The Funds are not available for sale in the United States of America or in countries other than Canada. This website should not be considered an offer to sell or solicitation to buy securities of the Funds, which are offered only by prospectus or similar offering document and only through qualified financial advisors. Copies of the Fund prospectuses may be obtained from your financial advisor. Please read the prospectuses carefully before investing and consult with your financial advisor.

Before purchasing one of our Funds, investors should be aware that commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with our Funds. The Funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. The availability of certain tax features described in the Funds’ prospectuses such as tax credits, increased foreign content in registered plans and overall tax rates, are subject to the conditions and limitations described in the prospectuses. Tax credits for labour-sponsored funds are generally subject to recapture if shares are redeemed within eight years.

The securities of the Funds may be speculative in nature. An investment in a Fund may be appropriate only for investors who are prepared to retain their money in the Fund for a long period of time and who have the capacity to absorb a loss of some or all of their investment. There is no guarantee that an investment in a Fund will earn a regular rate of return. In addition to the tax benefits of investing in a Fund, prospective investors should fully assess the investment merits of the Fund. Some of the rules designed to protect investors who purchase securities of mutual funds do not apply to the Funds. In particular, rules directed at ensuring liquidity and diversification of investments and certain other investment restrictions and practices normally applicable to mutual funds do not apply to the Funds.

In respect of any performance data about a Fund contained in this website, all rates of return for periods greater than one year are historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and do not take into account any sales, redemption or optional charges or income taxes payable by any security holder that may have reduced returns.
