We have once again jointly obtained a court order that enables our 2023 annual meetings to be held, as electronic-only or as hybrid meetings, as determined by each financial institution.
Toronto, January 11, 2022 – Mackenzie Financial Corporation (“Mackenzie Investments” or “Mackenzie”) and Canada Life Investment Management Ltd. (“CLIML”) announced that investors approved the proposed reorganizations (each, a “Reorganization”) outlined below, at special meetings held earlier today.
As a result of the Reorganizations, investors who hold Canada Life series of each Mackenzie Fund indicated below will be transitioned to a corresponding and substantially similar mutual fund managed by CLIML.
The Reorganizations follow a larger set of transactions which occurred on December 31, 2020 whereby Mackenzie transitioned its responsibilities as manager and trustee of the Canada Life Mutual Funds (formerly the Quadrus Group of Funds) and the Canada Life Pathways Funds to CLIML. Further, the Reorganizations were not able to be initiated until a number of tax deferred mergers transitioned Canada Life Series investors to the Funds in July 2021.
The changes outlined above will have no impact on Mackenzie series investors.
For more information on the Reorganizations, please refer to the management information circular dated December 2, 2021, which is available on the Mackenzie and Canada Life websites and at www.sedar.com.
