Dividend and Share Purchase Plan
Common and preferred shareholders wishing to acquire additional common shares of the Bank may take advantage of a cost-free Dividend and Share Purchase Plan.
The Plan provides a convenient method for eligible shareholders either to invest cash dividends in new common shares of the Bank or to receive dividends in the form of additional common shares of the Bank (stock dividends).
As well, eligible shareholders may invest up to $20,000 per fiscal year in the purchase of additional common shares.
Participants pay no brokerage commission or service charges of any kind, and all administrative costs of the Plan are paid by the Bank.
International Holders wishing to make an Optional Cash Purchase should contact Computershare (Tel. 514-982-7555) for the OCP form appropriate to their country of residence. For holders of preferred shares of the Bank, please refer to the Bank's Annual Information Form dated November 26, 2019 for a description of the material attributes of the Bank's common shares.

Common shares to which participants become entitled under the DRIP and the OCP shall be, at the election of the Bank, either newly issued from treasury or outstanding common shares purchased on the secondary market. Common shares purchased on the secondary market in accordance with the DRIP and the OCP may be acquired on or after an ex-dividend date for a Bank dividend payment, in which case such common shares will not be entitled to the applicable dividend payment of the Bank. Learn more about Information on the Bank’s common share ex-dividend dates.
