TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 2, 2005) - Canada Dominion
Resources 2005 Limited Partnership (the "Partnership") announces that it
has filed a preliminary prospectus relating to an initial public
offering of limited partnership units of the Partnership ("Units") in
all the provinces and territories of Canada. The maximum offering is
$100 million (4,000,000 Units).

The Partnership's investment objective is to provide a tax-assisted
investment in a diversified portfolio of equity securities of resource
companies with a view to earning income and achieving capital
appreciation for the limited partners. The assets of the Partnership

transaction with Dynamic Managed Portfolios Ltd. ("DMP Ltd.") pursuant

shares on a tax-deferred basis. DMP Ltd. will implement a multi-class
fund structure in 2005. It is anticipated that holders of DMP Resource
Fund shares will have the ability to switch into any other DMP class
fund on a tax-deferred basis once the multi-class fund structure is
implemented.

The Units are being offered at a price of $25.00 per Unit, subject to a
minimum subscription of two hundred Units for $5,000, payable in full at
time of subscription.
