For existing members of the Plan, the discount will automatically be applied to the reinvestment of the Q2 2022 Dividend.  For registered shareholders who wish to participate in the Plan and thereby receive the two percent discount in respect of the Q2 2022 Dividend, Enrolment Forms must be received by the Bank's transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada, by the close of business on May 4, 2022. Beneficial or non-registered holders must contact their financial institution or broker well in advance of the above date for instructions on how to participate.
