    About the Canadian Investment Awards

    The Canadian Investment Awards and Gala recognizes leading investment
products and firms illustrating an enduring commitment to excellence within
the Canadian financial services industry overall. It is the only time each
year in Canada, that the industry, investors and advisors come together to
select top performers. The event attracts over 650 guests annually and
represents the year long work of over 30 firms, 40 senior analysts and expert
jury members researching and ranking 50 categories and is supported by over 25
principal sponsors.
    The unusual nature of this collaborative structure provides an unbiased
and objective outcome that is completely unique to these awards and to Canada.
No other analysis process, nor any other resource, provides this broad
industry representation via "collaborative results" and the top performers
have become a valuable annual reference guide for Canadian investors and
advisors.
    This is the event of the season celebrating financial service excellence.
"Early bird" tickets are available prior to October 15th, 2008. For more
