1. More than one issue of the Diversified GIC may be offered in the same year and features may vary for each issue. Consequently, it is very important to ensure that the fact sheet you have corresponds to the issue you want to invest in.

2. The change in the Reference Asset Return has a direct impact on the Variable Interest. If the Reference Portfolio does not generate a positive price return at maturity that is greater than the Guaranteed Interest, the Diversified GICs will generate only the Guaranteed Interest in addition to the principal invested on the Issue Date.

3. The Diversified GIC is a deposit eligible for deposit insurance from the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC), subject to maximum coverage limitations and provided the deposit is made in accordance with the conditions set out by the CDIC as indicated in its "Protecting Your Deposits" brochure (available online at www.cdic.ca or by telephone at 1-800-461-2342).

1. The Bank issues multiple series of the Canadian Market GIC in the same year and features may vary for each issue. Consequently, it is very important to ensure that the fact sheet you have corresponds to the issue you want to invest in.

2. A change in the Reference Portfolio has a direct impact on the Variable Interest payable at maturity. If the Reference Portfolio does not generate a positive price return over the term of the Canadian Market GIC, the Canadian Market GIC will not generate any Variable Interest and, in this case, no return will be paid. No management fees are applied. The Reference Portfolio Return is a price return and will not take into account dividends paid on account of the Reference Shares.

3. The Canadian Market GIC is a deposit eligible for deposit insurance from the CDIC, subject always to maximum coverage limitations and provided the deposit is made in accordance with the conditions set out by the CDIC as indicated in its "Protecting Your Deposits" brochure (available online at www.cdic.ca or by telephone at 1-800-461-2342).
