The long-term success of our Canadian Equity Fossil Fuel Free Strategy is rooted in a quality investment philosophy. The aim of such an approach is to invest in businesses for the long-term (not trade stocks) that are profitable and well-established with durable, defensible attributes and can generate good returns on investment. We believe a focus on quality businesses combined with our disciplined approach to valuation and long-term holding period will continue to compound wealth for our clients.
This strategy does not own any stocks in the Energy or Utilities sectors. The goal is to construct a portfolio with a materially lower carbon footprint, without sacrificing long-term returns.
As long-term investors, we believe that integrating Environmental, Social and Governance factors into our investment process helps us to identify high-quality, sustainable businesses, as well as material risks and opportunities to the long-term value of our investments.
- Long-term investing approach with a high degree of capital preservation in falling markets
- Disciplined, repeatable investment process focusing on high quality, attractively valued companies

Please read the simplified prospectus before investing. The amount of risk associated with any particular investment depends largely on your own personal circumstances including your time horizon, liquidity needs, portfolio size, income, investment knowledge and attitude toward price fluctuations. Investors should consult their financial advisor before making a decision as to whether this fund is a suitable investment for them.
Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
The rate of return or mathematical table shown is used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and is not intended to reflect future values of the mutual fund or returns on investment in the mutual fund. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any unitholder that would have reduced returns.
