Mutual Fund Risk Classification Methodology for Use in Fund Facts

On December 12, 2013, the Canadian Securities Administrators (“CSA”) issued for public
comment CSA Notice 81-324 and Request for Comment Proposed CSA Mutual Fund Risk
Classification Methodology for Use in Fund Facts
. These proposals present a risk classification
methodology for use by mutual fund managers in the Fund Facts document.

The CSA developed the proposed methodology in response to stakeholder feedback that it has
received throughout the implementation of the point of sale disclosure framework for mutual
funds.

Please note that comments must be submitted to the CSA by the March 12, 2014 deadline. In
addition, MFDA staff will be reviewing and assessing the proposals.
