BFI Canada Income Fund Announces Results For The
Fourth Quarter And Year Ended December 31, 2004

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 7, 2005) - BFI Canada Income Fund
(the "Fund") (TSX:BFC.UN) today announced its financial results for the
three months and year ended December 31, 2004.

Financial highlights for the three months ended

(stated in thousands of Canadian dollars)

- Revenues and EBITDA(A) increased 19.9% and 15.7%, respectively, over
the comparative three months ended December 31, 2003

- Free cash flow available for distribution(B) for the three months
ended December 31, 2004 totalled $10,307 and is $2,501 higher than the
comparative three months ended December 31, 2003. Higher EBITDA(A)
partially offset by higher interest expense, maintenance capital
expenditures and a revision to estimated future cash flows for closure
costs is the principal reason for the increase. Excluding the revision
to estimated future cash flows for closure costs, free cash flow
available for distribution(B) would have been $12,070 or $4,264 higher
than the comparative three months ended December 31, 2003

- Aggregate distributions declared totalled $9,292 for the three months
ended December 31, 2004, representing a payout ratio of 90.2% of free
cash flow available for distribution(B). Excluding the revision to
estimated future cash flows amounting to $1,763 for the three months
ended December 31, 2004, due principally to closure costs specific to
the non-operating portion of the Fund's Lachenaie landfill, the payout
ratio would have been 77.0% of free cash flow available for
distribution(B)

- Acquisitions and volume and price growth are the principal reasons for
the Fund's revenue and EBITDA(A) growth

Financial highlights for the year ended

(stated in thousands of Canadian dollars)

- Revenues and EBITDA(A) increased 14.5% and 12.7%, respectively, over
the comparative year ended December 31, 2003

- Free cash flow available for distribution(B) for the year ended
December 31, 2004 totalled $41,438 and is $4,759 higher than the
comparative year ended December 31, 2003. Higher EBITDA(A) partially
offset by higher interest expense, maintenance capital expenditures and
a revision to estimated future cash flows for closure costs is the
principal reason for the increase. Excluding the revision to estimated
future cash flows for closure costs, free cash flow available for
distribution(B) would have been $43,340 or $6,661 higher than the
comparative year ended December 31, 2003

- Aggregate distributions declared totalled $35,195 for the year ended
December 31, 2004, representing a payout ratio of 84.9% of free cash
flow available for distribution(B). Excluding the revision to estimated
cash flows amounting to $1,902 for the year ended December 31, 2004, due
principally to closure costs specific to the non-operating portion of
the Fund's Lachenaie landfill, the payout ratio would have been 81.2% of
free cash flow available for distribution(B)

- Acquisitions and volume and price growth are the principal reasons for
the Fund's revenue and EBITDA(A) growth

Other highlights for the year ended

(stated in thousands of Canadian dollars)

- Fund completed the refinancing of its term and revolving loans in June
2004, and issued $47,000, 6.123% 5 year, and $58,000, 7.015% 10 year,
debentures and concurrently entered into a new $60,000 revolving credit
facility

- Fund completed the acquisition of Twin Oaks Environmental Ltd. ("Twin
Oaks") and Complete Disposal Services Ltd. ("CDS") in April and November
2004, respectively

- Fund entered into agreements in 2004 to acquire the Ridge landfill and
IESI Corporation ("IESI"), one of the leading regional, full service
non-hazardous solid waste management companies in the United States.
Both transactions closed in January 2005

Management Commentary

"By all measures, 2004 was a strong year for BFI Canada as we continued
our growth, both organically and through acquisitions, resulting in
revenue, EBITDA(A) and free cash flow available for distribution(B)
increases of 14.5%, 12.7% and 13.0%, respectively," said Keith Carrigan,
President and Chief Executive Officer. "The results for the year
represent a new benchmark for us and one we can grow from for 2005."

Mr. Carrigan said the Fund "benefited from many organic initiatives to
increase volumes and improve efficiencies in each of our operating
locations in Canada. Of the 14.5% growth in revenues for 2004,
approximately 2% was due to higher volumes of non-hazardous solid waste
entering the Lachenaie landfill; approximately 6% was a result of our
collection operations benefiting from the acquisition of Twin Oaks and
CDS during the year; with the balance, approximately 7%, resulting from
ongoing measures geared to continue organic growth and optimize results."

"Over the last three years as a public company BFI Canada has
demonstrated an ability to grow revenue, EBITDA(A) and free cash flow
available for distribution(B) in the Canadian waste management industry,
thus validating our business's alignment with the income trust
structure," said Mr. Carrigan. "We have grown our business and
increased distributions declared for our unitholders by growing both
organically and through strategic acquisitions, and we look forward to
positive contributions from our 2004 acquisitions and our acquisition of
the Ridge landfill, in 2005. We are also very excited about our future
growth opportunities in the United States and replicating the success we
have achieved in Canada through our recently completed acquisition of
IESI Corporation."

Notes:

(1) Operating results, net income per trust unit, basic & diluted, and
free cash flow available for distribution(B) and per trust unit have
been restated to reflect the adoption of the new accounting standard for
asset retirement obligations. The impact of adopting the new accounting
standard on the comparative period and annual results are detailed in
the BFI Canada Income Fund first quarter report for the period ended
March 31, 2004.

Operating highlights

(all amounts are in thousands of Canadian dollars, except per trust unit
amounts)

Revenues for the three months and year ended December 31, 2004 increased
$8,613 and $24,330 or 19.9% and 14.5%, respectively. Strategic
acquisitions, price increases, organic growth and favourable commodity
prices combined to account for the period over period and year over year
solid waste collection ("collection") segment increase. Higher volumes
of accepted non-hazardous solid waste entering the Lachenaie landfill is
the principal reason for the period over period and year over year
landfill and energy ("landfill") segment increase.

Operating expenses for the three months and year ended December 31, 2004
increased $5,135 and $14,486, respectively. Strategic acquisitions,
higher disposal and labour expenditures, related principally to the
collection of additional volumes of waste, and higher costs to service
new and existing customers combined to account for the period over
period and year over year increase in the collection segment. The
increase in the landfill segment for the period and year ended December
31, 2004 is due principally to landfill royalty costs related to the
Lachenaie north expansion and additional volumes of accepted
non-hazardous solid waste entering the Lachenaie landfill, partially
offset by a decline in equipment rental charges at the Lethbridge
landfill.

Selling, general and administration ("SG&A") expenses for the three
months and year ended December 31, 2004 increased $1,220 and $2,560,
respectively. The increase for the three months ended December 31,
2004, is principally a function of the Twin Oaks and CDS acquisitions.
For the year ended December 31, 2004, the increase is principally a
function of the Twin Oaks and CDS acquisitions and additional long-term
incentive plan ("LTIP") accruals totalling $360 versus the prior year
ended December 31, 2003.

EBITDA(A) for the three months and year ended December 31, 2004
increased $2,258 and $7,284 or 15.7% and 12.7%, respectively. Strategic
acquisitions, price and volume growth in the collection segment, and an
increase in accepted non-hazardous solid waste at BFI Canada-owned
landfills, partially offset by landfill royalty costs related to the
Lachenaie north expansion, were the principal contributors to EBITDA(A)
growth for the respective period and year then ended.

Free cash flow available for distribution(B) totalled $10,307 and
$41,438 for the three months and year ended December 31, 2004,
respectively, versus $7,806 and $36,679 for the comparative three months
and year ended December 31, 2003. Excluding the revision to estimated
future cash flows for closure costs specific to the non-operating
portion of the Lachenaie landfill, free cash flow available for
distribution(B) would have been $12,070 or $4,264 higher than the
comparative three months ended December 31, 2003, and $43,340 or $6,661
higher than the comparative year ended December 31, 2003.

The Fund paid cash distributions to unitholders of $1.3175 per trust
unit for the year ended December 31, 2004 and declared a distribution
payable to unitholders of record on December 31, 2004, payable January
14, 2005, of $0.116875 per trust unit. In August 2004, the Fund
increased its current distribution rate by 10.0% to an annualized rate
of $1.4025 per trust unit beginning with the distribution payable on
September 15, 2004 to unitholders of record on August 31, 2004.

On January 21, 2005, the Fund announced that it will increase future
distributions by 12.0% to an annualized rate of $1.5708 per trust unit
beginning with the distribution payable on March 15, 2005 to unitholders
of record on February 28, 2005.

(A) All references to "EBITDA" in this press release are to "income
before the following" on the consolidated statements of operations.
Income before the following may exclude some or all of the following:
"amortization, interest on long-term debt, net gain on sale of capital
and landfill assets or net (gain) loss on sale of capital and landfill
assets, write-off of deferred financing costs, gain on settlement of
bond forward contracts and income taxes". EBITDA is a term used by the
Fund that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by Canadian
generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and is therefore
unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers.
EBITDA is a measure of the Fund's operating profitability, and by
definition, excludes certain items (specifically amortization, interest
on long-term debt, net gain on sale of capital and landfill assets or
net (gain) loss on sale of capital and landfill assets, write-off of
deferred financing costs, gain on settlement of bond forward contracts
and income taxes). These items are viewed by management as either
non-cash (in the case of amortization, write-off of deferred financing
costs and future income taxes) or non-operating (in the case of interest
on long-term debt, net gain on sale of capital and landfill assets or
net (gain) loss on sale of capital and landfill assets, gain on
settlement of bond forward contracts and current income taxes). EBITDA
is a useful financial and operating metric for investors as it
represents a starting point in the determination of free cash flow
available for distribution(B). The underlying reasons for exclusion of
each item are as follows:

Amortization - as a non-cash item amortization has no impact on the
determination of free cash flow available for distribution(B).

Interest on long-term debt - interest on long-term debt is a function of
an entity's debt/equity mix and interest rates; as such, it reflects the
treasury/financing activities of the entity and represents a different
class of expense than the components of EBITDA.

Net gain on sale of capital and landfill assets - the net gain on sale
of capital and landfill assets has no impact on the determination of
free cash flow available for distribution(B), because the proceeds were
reinvested in other capital assets.

Net (gain) loss on sale of capital and landfill assets - the net gain on
sale of capital and landfill assets has no impact on the determination
of free cash flow available for distribution(B), because the proceeds
were either reinvested in other capital assets or used to repay the
Fund's revolving credit facility.

Write-off of deferred financing costs - as a non-cash item write-off of
deferred financing costs has no impact on the determination of free cash
flow available for distribution(B).

Gain on settlement of bond forward contracts - the gain on settlement of
bond forward contracts is a treasury/financing activity and represents a
different class of revenue than the components of EBITDA.

Income taxes - income taxes are a function of tax laws and rates and are
affected by matters which are separate from the daily operations of the
Fund.

EBITDA should not be construed as a measure of income or of cash flows.
The reconciling items between EBITDA and net income are detailed in the
consolidated statements of operations beginning with "income before the
following" and ending with "net income".

(B) The Fund has adopted a measurement called free cash flow available
for distribution to supplement net income as a measure of operating
performance. Free cash flow available for distribution is a term which
does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and is therefore
unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers. The
objective of presenting this non-GAAP measure is to calculate the amount
which is available for distribution to unitholders. Free cash flow
available for distribution is calculated as EBITDA(A) less amortization
of capitalized landfill asset closure and post-closure costs, interest
on long-term debt, current income taxes and maintenance capital
expenditures. Additionally, the Fund's gain on settlement of two bond
forward contracts on June 25, 2004 will be amortized to free cash flow
available for distribution over the underlying terms of the senior
secured debentures. Free cash flow available for distribution is not
necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs and should
not be considered as an alternative to cash flow as a measure of
liquidity. All references in this press release to "free cash flow
available for distribution" have the meaning set out in this note.
