Canoe 'GO CANADA' Income Fund Completes Initial Public Offering

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 18, 2011) -


Canoe Financial LP ("Canoe") announces that the Canoe 'GO CANADA' Income Fund (the "Fund") has completed its initial public offering of units ("Combined Units") of the Fund, pursuant to the final prospectus dated December 17, 2010.

Gross proceeds totaling over $55.2 million were raised, representing approximately 4.6 million Combined Units at a purchase price of $12.00 per Combined Unit. Each Combined Unit consists of one transferable trust unit (a "Unit") and one-half of one Unit purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Unit at the subscription price of $12.00 per Unit on or before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on January 30, 2012 (the "Warrant Expiry Time").

The Units are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol GCI.A.

The Fund has been created to provide investors with exposure to a diversified portfolio comprised primarily of equity and fixed income securities of Canadian issuers. The Fund's portfolio will be managed by Haber Trilix Advisors, LP ("Haber") led by Robert Haber, an awarding winning portfolio manager and former CIO of Fidelity Investments Canada. Haber believes the Fund's portfolio is positioned to take advantage of the increasing demand by emerging and developing economies for resources, assets and services provided by these Canadian issuers.

Canoe and Haber believe that by investing in the Fund, investors will participate in a period of major economic growth over the next decade and beyond, because they believe:

-- developing economies will be the drivers of future global economic
-- resource rich countries like Canada, with its stable fiscal regime and
sound banking system, will benefit from this new source of growth; and
-- quantitative easing will reduce the cost for developing economies to
fund their growth.

The Fund's distributions are initially targeted to be 6% per annum on the subscription price of $12.00 per Combined Unit ($0.06 per Unit per month or $0.72 per Unit per annum).
