Each Unitholder will receive a T3 supplementary slip for 2008 that will indicate the amount of "Other Income" - Box 26 ,"Eligible Dividends" - Box 49, "Non-Eligible Dividends" - Box 23, and "Capital Gains" - Box 21 that are to be included in their tax return. The dividends will be subject to the standard gross-up and federal dividend tax credit rules. The T3 supplementary slips are prepared by Computershare Trust Company of Canada and/or investment dealers.

The "Return of Capital" (Box 42) is a non-taxable amount and will reduce the Adjusted Cost Base of the unitholder's units.

If the Units were held within a RRSP, DPSP, or RRIF, then no T3 slip will be received and no amount would be required to be reported on the Unitholder's personal tax return.
