necessary information concerning the refund. Upon completion of this form, subscribers may
simply fax or mail this form back with a covering letter requesting the refund.

NON-REPORTING ISSUERS EXEMPT FROM SEDAR SERVICE CHARGES
As you know, the annual continuous disclosure service charges are now collected
electronically via the SEDAR system. Please note that non-reporting issuers, should they
file annual financial statements at the request of a securities regulatory authority, are
not subject to the annual continuous disclosure fee payment. In case a payment is made in
error, CDS INC. will send the filing service subscriber--who submitted the payment--an
appropriate refund. In addition, CDS will monitor the system for any payments made on
behalf of non-reporting issuers using the other filer profile in a filing, and provide the
refund on a pro-active basis. Reporting issuers using an other filer profile in error are
subject to all the applicable SEDAR service charges as set out in the National Instrument
13-101 and the SEDAR Filer Manual.
If you have any questions please contact your local Customer Support Representative,
or the SEDAR Help Desk at 1 (8.5) 219-5381.
