    Caution concerning forward-looking statements

    This document includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of
certain securities laws, including the "safe harbour" provisions of the
Securities Act (Ontario) and other provincial securities law in Canada. These
forward-looking statements include, among others, statements with respect to
our objectives, goals and strategies to achieve those objectives and goals, as
well as statements with respect to our beliefs, plans, objectives,
expectations, anticipations, estimates and intentions. The words "may",
"will", "could", "should", "would", "suspect", "outlook", "believe", "plan",
"anticipate", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "forecast", "objective" and
"continue" (or the negative thereof), and words and expressions of similar
import, are intended to identify forward-looking statements.
    By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks
and uncertainties, both general and specific, which give rise to the
possibility that predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking
statements will not be achieved. Certain material factors or assumptions are
applied in making forward-looking statements and actual results may differ
materially from those expressed or implied in such statements. We caution
readers not to place undue reliance on these statements, as a number of
important factors, many of which are beyond our control, could cause our
actual results to differ materially from the beliefs, plans, objectives,
expectations, anticipations, estimates and intentions expressed in such
forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to,
general economic conditions; dependence on government-based revenues; the
ability to renew the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care contract on
favourable terms; pending and proposed legislative or regulatory developments
including the impact of changes in laws, regulations and the enforcement
thereof; intensifying competition, resulting from established competitors and
new entrants in the businesses in which we operate; technological change;
interest rate fluctuations; insurance coverage of sufficient scope to satisfy
any liability claims; fluctuations in operating results; dependence on our
operating subsidiary to pay its interest obligations to us; fluctuations in
cash distributions and capital investment; management of credit, market,
liquidity and funding and operational risks; judicial judgments and legal
proceedings; privacy laws; our ability to complete strategic acquisitions and
to integrate our acquisitions successfully; changes in accounting policies and
methods we use to report our financial condition, including uncertainties
associated with critical accounting assumptions and estimates; operational and
infrastructure risks including possible equipment failure and performance of
information technology systems; fluctuations in total patient referrals; loss
of services of key senior management personnel; other factors that may affect
future growth and results including timely development and introduction of new
products and services, changes in our estimates relating to reserves and
allowances, future sales of units, changes in tax laws, technological changes
and obsolescence, natural disasters, the possible impact on our businesses
from public health emergencies, international conflicts and other developments
including those relating to terrorism; the effect of any one or more of such
events and risks on our stability ratings and any changes thereto; and our
success in anticipating and managing the foregoing risks. Additional factors
related to the acquisition include, but are not limited to, our ability to
successfully integrate the operations of ARS; additional liabilities or costs
attributable to the acquisition; unknown liabilities of ARS; the ability to
retain senior management of ARS; the ability to complete accretive
acquisitions in the U.S.; the continuation and nature of the relationship with
Johns Hopkins; and changes in U.S. federal and state healthcare laws and
regulations, including Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements levels and
including those that may arise from potential U.S. Healthcare reform
initiatives.
    We caution that the foregoing list of important factors that may affect
future results is not exhaustive. When reviewing our forward-looking
statements, investors and others should carefully consider the foregoing
factors and other uncertainties and potential events. Additional information
about factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from
expectations, and about material factors or assumptions applied in making
forward-looking statements, may be found in the "Risk Factors" section, under
"Business Risks" and elsewhere in our Management's Discussion and Analysis of
Operating Results and Financial Position for the year ended December 31, 2008
and elsewhere in our filings with Canadian securities regulators. Except as
required by Canadian securities law, we do not undertake to update any
forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, that may be made from
time to time by us or on our behalf; such statements speak only as of the date
made.
