To provide investors with greater transparency and more detailed information, Canadian securities regulations require investment fund managers to annually disclose the record of proxy votes.
If a change to a fund is proposed, unitholders of that fund are given the opportunity to vote for, or against, the change. Voting can happen either in person at a public meeting, or by sending it in advance to be counted along with the votes of unitholders who attend the meeting. This is called voting by proxy.
You can view voting records for individual securities on a fund-by-fund basis. For each security, a brief description of each voting matter is provided, whether the investment fund voted on the matter, and whether the votes cast were for or against the recommendations of the management of the issuer.
This information is for the period ending March 31 of each year and is updated on May 31.
