Foremost Announces Distribution Dates & Amount

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - March 22, 2006) - Following the reorganization completed December 28, 2005, Foremost Income Fund (TSX:FMO.UN) ("Foremost, or the "Fund") announces that its distribution record date is March 31, 2006, and its distribution payment date is April 17, 2006, as mandated in the Fund's new Deed of Trust. This announcement supercedes any previous information to the contrary.

As anticipated in the reorganization, the Trustees have revisited Foremost's distribution program. It was decided to increase the distribution to $0.25 per unit for the first quarter 2006. The distribution policy, including the introduction of a Distribution Reinvestment Program, will be revisited shortly.
