The following additional changes were made to the Declaration of Trust:

Clause 10 - Death:  Wording has been clarified.
Clause 17 - Resignation or Removal of Trustee:  The wording has been expanded, and notably, the notice requirement has been reduced to 30 days from 60 days.
Clause 18 - Application for Advice and Direction:  This is a new clause, explicitly giving the Trustee the authority to apply to court for advice and direction where there is a dispute over the entitlement of the Fund proceeds on death or relationship breakdown.

Further minor amendments were made througout the Declaration of Trust.  For further information, please contact your branch.

Registered Retirement Income Fund

A Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) is one of the most flexible income options. Your RRIF is designed to provide payments to you in any amount you choose, subject to an annual minimum amount. And don’t worry – the payment you select today can be changed tomorrow. Another benefit is the fact that you control the types of investment for your RRIF. At death, the balance is available to your beneficiary(s).

A RRIF is an ideal choice for members who want a flexible plan, who want to make their own decisions regarding retirement income, and also for estate preservation. You have a wide variety of investment options for your RRIF including savings accounts, term deposits, mutual funds*, stocks* and bonds*.

Most retirement income option investors consider security of prime importance. Before you make your investment choices, ask about deposit insurance protection. There is no insurance against loss on mutual funds, stocks or bonds held in your RRIF.
