Re-opening Canada Life U.S. Small-Mid Cap Growth Fund

CLIML is committed to keeping its product shelf relevant and competitive through changing market conditions. That's why on January 16, 2024, it's reopening all series of the Canada Life U.S. Small-Mid Cap Growth Fund to new investors.

The predecessor fund, Mackenzie US Small-Mid Cap Growth Fund, was closed to new investors on July 30, 2021 due to capacity constraints identified by the sub-advisor, Mackenzie Investments. Prior to January 16, 2024, advisors weren’t able to make purchases into the Fund for new investors. The sub-advisor has closely monitored the capacity of the Fund and has determined that it can now accept new investors. Therefore, CLIML has determined that it is the appropriate time to re-open it to new investors.

Risk rating change to Canada Life Global Multi-Sector Fixed Income Fund

Effective on or about January 26, 2024, the risk rating for the Fund will decrease.

Fund Name Previous Risk Rating New Risk Rating
Canada Life Global Multi-Sector Fixed Income Fund Low-to-medium Low


CLIML reviews its funds' risk ratings at least annually, and when a fund undergoes a material change, in accordance with the investment risk classification methodology mandated by the Canadian Securities Administrators.

The above change is the result of the upcoming sub-advisor change announced on November 9, 2023. The Fund will now aim to invest approximately 100 per cent into units of the Canada Life Global Multi-Sector Bond Fund.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
