Mackenzie Investments and Canada Life Investment Management Ltd. Announce Special Meeting Results for Proposed Fund Reorganizations

Toronto, January 11, 2022 – Mackenzie Financial Corporation (“Mackenzie Investments” or “Mackenzie”) and Canada Life Investment Management Ltd. (“CLIML”) announced that investors approved the proposed reorganizations (each, a “Reorganization”) outlined below, at special meetings held earlier today.

As a result of the Reorganizations, investors who hold Canada Life series of each Mackenzie Fund indicated below will be transitioned to a corresponding and substantially similar mutual fund managed by CLIML.

The Reorganizations follow a larger set of transactions which occurred on December 31, 2020 whereby Mackenzie transitioned its responsibilities as manager and trustee of the Canada Life Mutual Funds (formerly the Quadrus Group of Funds) and the Canada Life Pathways Funds to CLIML. Further, the Reorganizations were not able to be initiated until a number of tax deferred mergers transitioned Canada Life Series investors to the Funds in July 2021.
