2018 share issue

New provisions following the provincial Budget Speech

  • The authorized amount for the 2018 issue is increased to $140 million
  • The tax credit is set at 35%
  • The annual maximum subscription will be set later

Read the press release for more information

The full subscription terms and key dates have not been fixed yet. The pre-subscription period during which you can register should begin next September. A press release will be published for this purpose.

Acquisition process

As in previous years, in order to obtain shares, you will need to fill in the secure web form during the pre-subscription period, the dates of which are to be determined.

Two different scenarios based on the demand

  • At the end of the pre-subscription period, if share demand exceeds the authorized capitalisation amount for the issue, investors will be selected at random from the pool of completed online forms. This will create a random list of all received requests to determine the priority order of the selected investors.
  • If share demand is less than the authorized capitalisation amount, all investors who filled out the online form will be able to obtain shares.

Available only in Quebec
