3 Introduction The Social Investment Organization (SIO) is pleased to present the 2013 socially responsible investment (SRI) mutual fund guide. This guide was compiled in response to requests for information on SRI mutual funds by investment advisors and investors. All of the firms listed in this document are Sustaining or Associate Members of the SIO. As Canada s national association for socially responsible investment, the SIO raises public awareness of SRI, educates the financial community and the public about SRI and takes a leading role in furthering the use of SRI. As leading members of the SIO, the firms listed in this guide have a strong interest in the principles of socially responsible investment and have made a significant commitment to the development of SRI in Canada. SIO members believe that socially responsible investment represents a useful tool to enhance returns and reduce risk by incorporating social and environmental factors. It is also a catalyst for positive social change. Questions?

Important: This table has been created by the Social Investment Organization to serve as a reference and educational tool for financial advisors. The table provides information at the macro level, and suitable investment decisions cannot be made based on the information in this table alone. 2 Funds using positive / best of sector screening seek out leading environmental social governance (ESG) companies within each sector in areas such as environmental protection, climate change, alternative energy, human rights, employee relations, aboriginal relations, executive compensation. 3 Funds using exclusionary screening exclude investments based on pre determined ESG criteria. This can involve the screening out of shares in companies involved in controversial activities (e.g. weapons manufacturing or tobacco), the screening out of entire sectors, or the screening out of poor performing companies. ESG integration is the consideration of environmental social governance (ESG) factors in the investment decision making process. It is different from screening in that it combines ESG data, research and analysis together with financial and other factors in making investment decisions. 4 Shareholder engagement influences corporate behaviour through various strategies including communicating with senior management and/or boards of directors, filing shareholder proposals, and proxy voting. 5 Thematic funds are investments that address specific sustainability issues or themes (such as climate change, food, water, etc.). Investments are directed to companies or industries that offer innovative solutions to existing problems or otherwise enhance sustainability practices. 6 Impact investing refers to targeted investments, typically made in private markets and aimed at solving social or environmental problems. Impact investing includes community investing, where capital is specifically directed to traditionally underserved individuals or communities, to businesses with a clear social or environmental purpose, or to revenue generating non profits. 7 Page 4

Acuity pioneered the concept of sustainable development investing in Canada when in 1991 it launched the Clean Environment Strategy (now called AGF Clean Environment Fund). The Fund is thematic, investing globally in clean technology and resource based environmental innovation. Since 2000, we have offered our Social Values funds (AGF Social Values Balanced Fund and AGF Social Values Equity Fund), which combine detailed financial analysis with environmental, social and governance (ESG) research. We believe that because ESG factors can have a material impact on a firm's operations, sustainability, profitability and valuation, ESG analysis allows us to better identify the long term risks and opportunities for a company. By disclosing ESG practices and defining ESG strategy, a company demonstrates transparency, awareness of risk, strategic forward thinking and strong management qualities we believe to be important when considering potential investment in a company.

8 F IRM PROFILE AGF offers sustainable investment solutions managed by Acuity Investment Management Inc.* As a pioneer in this field, Acuity has assessed the market value implications of environmental issues since 1991 within its AGF Clean Environment Fund**. The Social Values funds, launched in 2000, enable investors to apply wider social criteria to the investment decision-making process. Acuity is distinguished by the unique makeup of its portfolio management team, who apply not only business, but also scientific and technical backgrounds to the security-selection process. Armed with their expertise in the engineering, medical, geological and environmental fields, the team conducts in-depth bottom-up security analysis, creating portfolios that are financially strong as well as socially and environmentally sound. Enhancing the skills of our team is the Acuity Scientific Advisory Council, comprised of prominent multinational environment and business professionals that provide periodic assessments of global trends. In addition to offering management expertise in SRI strategies, Acuity has taken a leading role in promoting the importance of sustainable and socially responsible investing within Canada and around the world. Acuity is the only Canadian company to participate as a member of the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative Asset Management Working Group. The group publishes research reports that highlight the environmental and social impact of companies in a range of sectors. I NVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY Acuity's investment philosophy is consistent across all asset classes: we purchase reasonably valued securities to hold over the mid to longer-term for capital appreciation. Equities are held for their upside potential while bonds stabilize portfolio returns and deliver a secure and consistent income stream. Equities Acuity applies a disciplined, conservative approach to identifying reasonably valued growth companies that can be held for the mid to long term. Our investment strategy emphasizes companies with viable business models derived from sustainable competitive advantages. The scientific and technical expertise of our portfolio managers enables us to probe companies to determine whether a company truly possesses such advantages. To assist in identifying attractively valued securities and determining appropriate purchase prices, we perform a rigorous financial analysis to identify companies with robust fundamentals. Fixed Income & Money Market Historically, Acuity has avoided over-exposing fixed-income assets to market risk. Our strategy emphasizes quality while focusing on managing term and duration relative to the Universe Bond Index benchmark. Our fixed-income style is best described as a managed duration/yield spread trading approach, which is designed to produce consistent and predictable income while minimizing risk. Bond portfolios are constructed around a core of high-quality Government of Canada issues with short-, mid- and longer-term maturities, averaging to within ± 0.5 years around the benchmark duration. The remaining holdings tend to provincial and high-quality corporate names with superior yield characteristics. Page 8

9 SRI PRODUCTS AND S ERVICES AGF offers clients traditional SRI strategies via our Social Values funds, AGF Social Values Equity Fund and AGF Social Values Balanced Fund, as well as an environmentally focussed strategy via AGF Clean Environment Equity fund. The AGF Clean Environment Equity Fund is a thematic fund, focussing on four key themes: energy and power solutions, water and waste water solutions, waste management and pollution control, and environment health and safety. Acuity applies wider social criteria through its Social Values strategies. Investment solutions are also offered for institutional investors of varying investment horizons, risk tolerances and return objectives. In support of the principle of social sustainability, Acuity Social Values funds aim to invest in companies that develop and sell products that on balance are beneficial for their users and society. Companies that derive a significant portion of their revenues from products with adverse health impacts, such as weapons, nuclear power, tobacco, alcohol, and gambling are excluded. A number of other important social factors are considered during the investment process. For example, Acuity favours companies with strong records of performance relative to their peers in: Environmental factors Human rights Labour practices Community and aboriginal relations Corporate governance Animal welfare I NQUIRIES https://www.agf.com/static/en/products_services/47628.html *Effective March 1, 2012, Acuity Funds Ltd. amalgamated with its affiliate AGF Investments Inc.

14 PROFILE Créé par une loi de l Assemblée nationale du Québec en juin 1995, Fondaction, le Fonds de développement de la Confédération des syndicats nationaux pour la coopération et l emploi, est un fonds de travailleurs combinant les avantages fiscaux des régimes enregistrés d épargne retraite aux crédits d impôt d un fonds d investissement voué au maintien et à la création d emplois. Il s agit d épargne investie à long terme en vue de la retraite et bénéficiant d avantages fiscaux importants pour les travailleuses et les travailleurs québécois. L organisation du travail, l épargne et l emploi font partie des enjeux auxquels la CSN s est toujours intéressée. Le rapport de la CSN avec Fondaction en est un de partenariat et de proximité et non d affiliation, de contrôle ou de propriété. Bien que les règles de transparence et de divulgation constituant la base des lois en valeurs mobilières exigent la publication de rapports financiers, Fondaction va plus loin. Fondaction a produit son premier rapport de développement durable en 2006 à l occasion de son 10 e anniversaire. En choisissant un rythme de parution biennal, ce quatrième rapport continue de rendre compte de sa performance en développement durable et de sa saine gouvernance. Leader en la matière, Fondaction a une fois de plus demandé un examen du rapport de développement durable à un auditeur indépendant ainsi qu'auprès de la GRI, le faisant ainsi passer du niveau A au niveau A+. Au 31 mai 2012, l actif total s élevait à 914,6 M$ et le nombre d actionnaires s élevait à PHILOSOPHIE DE PLACEMENT À la mission fondamentale d un fonds de travailleurs de maintenir et de créer des emplois, Fondaction s est aussi donné comme mission spécifique de se rendre plus particulièrement disponible aux entreprises inscrites dans un processus de gestion participative, aux entreprises autocontrôlées ainsi qu aux entreprises soucieuses de l environnement. On retrouve ainsi dans sa loi constitutive la volonté d agir sur la base des trois piliers du développement durable : l économie, le social et l environnement. Avant toutes les autres institutions financières québécoises faisant appel à l épargne du grand public, il s est résolument engagé dans la voie du développement durable. La Loi constituant Fondaction prévoit qu à chaque exercice financier, les investissements admissibles doivent représenter, en moyenne, au moins 60 % de l actif net moyen du Fonds pour l exercice précédent. Les investissements à impact économique québécois (ou capital de développement) sont composés de participations directes dans des entreprises, de participations dans des fonds partenaires ou spécialisés ainsi que d un portefeuille boursier diversifié constitué de titres d entreprises québécoises à petite capitalisation. Les sommes qui ne sont pas investies dans des entreprises admissibles à la norme de 60 % sont placées sur les marchés financiers avec l objectif de créer une base de revenus stables pour le Fonds et d'en diversifier l actif d une façon qui protège le capital détenu par les actionnaires. Le portefeuille des autres investissements demeure majoritairement composé d obligations et autres titres à revenu fixe. Page 14

15 PRODUITS ET SERVICES ISR Les épargnants qui investissent dans Fondaction bénéficient d un crédit d impôt de 40 %, en plus de profiter des réductions pour contribution à un REER.

Filaction, un fonds de développement spécialisé en économie sociale et solidaire, a aussi été créé par Fondaction en 2001 dans le but d atteindre des objectifs de développement économique et social. Les engagements externes de Fondaction reflètent l importance que l institution accorde à la finance socialement responsable et au développement durable. Le Fonds considère qu il est de sa responsabilité sociétale de participer activement aux travaux de diverses organisations œuvrant dans des domaines qui sont en lien avec sa mission, tels que l économie sociale et solidaire, le développement économique, la recherche et le développement durable.
