Schedule 2
Personal Information Collection Policy
The regulators listed in Schedule 3 Regulators collect the personal information in Schedule 1 Personal Information Form under the authority granted to them under provincial and territorial securities legislation.  Under securities legislation, the regulators do not make any of the information provided in Schedule 1 public.
The regulators collect the personal information in Schedule 1 for the purpose of enabling the regulators to administer and enforce provincial and territorial securities legislation, including those provisions that require or permit the regulators to refuse to issue a receipt for a prospectus if it appears to the regulators that the past conduct of management or promoters of the Issuer affords reasonable grounds for belief that the business of the Issuer will not be conducted with integrity and in the best interests of its securityholders.
You understand that by signing the certificate and consent in Schedule 1, you are consenting to the Issuer submitting your personal information in Schedule 1 (the "Information") to the regulators and to the collection and use by the regulators of the Information, as well as any other information that may be necessary to administer and enforce provincial and territorial securities legislation. This may include the collection of information from law enforcement agencies, other government or non-governmental regulatory authorities, self-regulatory organizations, exchanges, and quotation and trade reporting systems in order to conduct background checks, verify the Information and perform investigations and conduct enforcement proceedings as required to ensure compliance with provincial and territorial securities legislation.  
You understand that the Issuer is required to deliver the Information to the regulators because the Issuer has filed a prospectus under provincial and territorial securities legislation.  You also understand that you have a right to be informed of the existence of personal information about you that is kept by regulators, that you have the right to request access to that information, and that you have the right to request that such information be corrected, subject to the applicable provisions of the freedom of information and protection of privacy legislation adopted by each province and territory.
You also understand and agree that the Information the regulators collect about you may also be disclosed, as permitted by law, where its use and disclosure is for the purposes described above.  The regulators may also use a third party to process the Information, but when this happens, the third party will be carefully selected and obligated to comply with the limited use restrictions described above and with provincial and federal privacy legislation.
Warning:  It is an offence to submit information that, in a material respect and at the time and in the light of the circumstances in which it is submitted, is misleading or untrue.
Questions
If you have any questions about the collection, use, and disclosure of the information you provide to the regulators, you may contact the regulator in the jurisdiction in which the required information is filed, at the address or telephone number listed in Schedule 3.

FORM 41-101F1
INFORMATION REQUIRED IN A PROSPECTUS
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
(1)	The objective of the prospectus is to provide information concerning the issuer that an investor needs in order to make an informed investment decision. This Form sets out specific disclosure requirements that are in addition to the general requirement under securities legislation to provide full, true and plain disclosure of all material facts relating to the securities to be distributed. Certain rules of specific application impose prospectus disclosure obligations in addition to those described in this Form.
(2)	Terms used and not defined in this Form that are defined or interpreted in the Instrument bear that definition or interpretation. Other definitions are set out in NI 14-101.
(3)	In determining the degree of detail required, a standard of materiality must be applied. Materiality is a matter of judgment in the particular circumstance, and is determined in relation to an item's significance to investors, analysts and other users of the information. An item of information, or an aggregate of items, is considered material if it is probable that its omission or misstatement would influence or change an investment decision with respect to the issuer's securities. In determining whether information is material, take into account both quantitative and qualitative factors. The potential significance of items must be considered individually rather than on a net basis, if the items have an offsetting effect. This concept of materiality is consistent with the financial reporting notion of materiality contained in the Handbook.
(4)	Unless an item specifically requires disclosure only in the preliminary prospectus, the disclosure requirements set out in this Form apply to both the preliminary prospectus and the prospectus. Details concerning the price and other matters dependent upon or relating to price, such as the number of securities being distributed, may be left out of the preliminary prospectus, along with specifics concerning the plan of distribution, to the extent that these matters have not been decided.
(5)	The disclosure must be understandable to readers and presented in an easy-to-read format. The presentation of information should comply with the plain language principles listed in section 4.1 of Companion Policy 41-101CP General Prospectus Requirements. If technical terms are required, clear and concise explanations should be included.
(6)	No reference need be made to inapplicable items and, unless otherwise required in this Form, negative answers to items may be omitted. 
(7)	Where the term "issuer" is used, it may be necessary, in order to meet the requirement for full, true and plain disclosure of all material facts, to also include disclosure with respect to persons or companies that the issuer is required, under the issuer's GAAP, to consolidate, proportionately consolidate or account for using the equity method (for example, including "subsidiaries" as that term is used in the Handbook).  If it is more likely than not that a person or company will become an entity that the issuer will be required, under the issuer's GAAP, to consolidate, proportionately consolidate or account for using the equity method, it may be necessary to also include disclosure with respect to the person or company.
(8)	An issuer that is a special purpose vehicle may have to modify the disclosure items to reflect the special purpose nature of its business.
(9) 	If disclosure is required as of a specific date and there has been a material change or change that is otherwise significant in the required information subsequent to that date, present the information as of the date of the change or a date subsequent to the change instead.
(10) 	If an issuer discloses financial information in a preliminary prospectus or prospectus in a currency other than the Canadian dollar, prominently disclose the currency in which the financial information is disclosed.
(11) 	Except as otherwise required or permitted, include information in a narrative form.  The issuer may include graphs, photographs, maps, artwork or other forms of illustration, if relevant to the business of the issuer or the distribution and not misleading.  Include descriptive headings.  Except for information that appears in a summary, information required under more than one Item need not be repeated.
(12) 	Certain requirements in this Form make reference to requirements in another instrument or form.  Unless this Form states otherwise, issuers must also follow the instruction or requirement in the other instrument or form.  These references include references to Form 51-102F2.  Venture issuers must include such disclosure in a preliminary prospectus or prospectus even if they are not otherwise required to file an annual information form under NI 51-102 
(13)	Wherever this Form uses the word "subsidiary", the term includes companies and other types of business organizations such as partnerships, trusts and other unincorporated business entities.
(14) 	Where requirements in this Form make reference to, or are substantially similar to, requirements in Form 51-102F2, issuers may apply the general provision in subpart 1(d) of Form 51-102F2.  However, issuers must supplement this disclosure if the supplemented disclosure is necessary to ensure that the prospectus provides full, true and plain disclosure of all material facts related to the securities to be distributed as required under Item 29 of this Form.
(15)	Forward-looking information included in a prospectus must comply with section 4A.2 of NI 51-102 and must include the disclosure described in section 4A.3 of NI 51-102.  In addition to the foregoing, FOFI or a financial outlook, each as defined in NI 51-102, included in a prospectus must comply with Part 4B of NI 51-102.  If the forward-looking information relates to an issuer or other entity that is not a reporting issuer in any jurisdiction, section 4A.2, section 4A.3 and Part 4B of NI 51-102 apply as if the issuer or other entity were a reporting issuer in at least one jurisdiction.

(c)	the earnings coverage ratio based on the 12-month period ended on the last day of the most recently completed period for which interim financial statements of the issuer have been included in the prospectus.
(2)	Adjust the ratios referred to in subsection (1) to reflect
(a)	the issuance of the securities being distributed under the prospectus, based on the price at which these securities are expected to be distributed,
(b)	in the case of a distribution of preferred shares,
(i)	the issuance of all preferred shares since the date of the annual or interim financial statements, and
(ii)	the repurchase, redemption or other retirement of all preferred shares repurchased, redeemed, or otherwise retired since the date of the annual or interim financial statements and of all preferred shares to be repurchased, redeemed, or otherwise retired from the proceeds to be realized from the sale of securities under the prospectus,

(e)	the servicing costs that were incurred, or are expected to be incurred, in relation to the adjustments.
(3)	If the issuer is distributing, or has outstanding, debt securities that are accounted for, in whole or in part, as equity, disclose in notes to the ratios required under subsection (1)
(a)	that the ratios have been calculated excluding the carrying charges for those securities that have been reflected in equity in the calculation of the issuer's interest and dividend obligations,
(b)	that if those securities had been accounted for in their entirety as debt for the purpose of calculating the ratios required under subsection (1), the entire amount of the annual carrying charges for those securities would have been reflected in the calculation of the issuer's interest and dividend obligations, and
(c)	the earnings coverage ratios for the periods referred to in subsection (1), calculated as though those securities had been accounted for as debt.
(4)	If the earnings coverage ratio is less than one-to-one, disclose in the prospectus the dollar amount of the earnings required to achieve a ratio of one-to-one.
(5)	If the prospectus includes a pro forma income statement, calculate the pro forma earnings coverage ratios for the periods of the pro forma income statement, and disclose them in the prospectus.
INSTRUCTIONS 
(1) 	Cash flow coverage may be disclosed but only as a supplement to earnings coverage and only if the method of calculation is fully disclosed.
(2)	Earnings coverage is calculated by dividing an entity's earnings (the numerator) by its interest and dividend obligations (the denominator).
(3) 	For the earnings coverage calculation 
(a)	 the numerator should be calculated using consolidated net income before interest and income taxes;
(b) 	imputed interest income from the proceeds of a distribution should not be added to the numerator; 
(c) 	an issuer may also present, as supplementary disclosure, a coverage calculation based on earnings before discontinued operations and extraordinary items;
(d)	for distributions of debt securities, the appropriate denominator is interest expense determined in accordance with the issuer's GAAP, after giving effect to the new debt issue and any retirement of obligations, plus the amount of interest that has been capitalized during the period;
(e) 	for distributions of preferred shares 
(i)	the appropriate denominator is dividends declared during the period, together with undeclared dividends on cumulative preferred shares, after giving effect to the new preferred share issue, plus the issuer's annual interest requirements, including the amount of interest that has been capitalized during the period, less any retirement of obligations, and
(ii) 	dividends should be grossed-up to a before-tax equivalent using the issuer's effective income tax rate; and
(f) 	for distributions of both debt securities and preferred shares, the appropriate denominator is the same as for a preferred share issue, except that the denominator should also reflect the effect of the debt being offered pursuant to the prospectus.
(4) 	The denominator represents a pro forma calculation of the aggregate of an issuer's interest obligations on all long-term debt and dividend obligations (including both dividends declared and undeclared dividends on cumulative preferred shares) with respect to all outstanding preferred shares, as adjusted to reflect
(a)	 the issuance of all long-term debt and, in addition in the case of an issuance of preferred shares, all preferred shares issued, since the date of the annual or interim financial statements;
(b)	 the issuance of the securities that are to be distributed under the prospectus, based on a reasonable estimate of the price at which these securities will be distributed;
(c)	 the repayment or redemption of all long-term debt since the date of the annual or interim financial statements, all long-term debt to be repaid or redeemed from the proceeds to be realized from the sale of securities under the prospectus and, in addition, in the case of an issuance of preferred shares, all preferred shares repaid or redeemed since the date of the annual or interim financial statements and all preferred shares to be repaid or redeemed from the proceeds to be realized from the sale of securities under the prospectus; and
(d)	the servicing costs that were incurred, or will be incurred, in relation to the above adjustments.
(5)	In certain circumstances, debt obligations may be classified as current liabilities because such obligations, by their terms, are due on demand, are due within one year, or are callable by the creditor.  If the issuer is distributing, or has outstanding, debt securities that are classified as current liabilities, disclose
(a)	 in the notes to the ratios required under subsection 9.1(1) that the ratios have been calculated excluding the carrying charges for those debt securities reflected as current liabilities;
(b)	 that if those debt securities had been classified in their entirety as long term debt for the purposes of calculating the ratios under subsection 9.1(1), the entire amount of the annual carrying charges for such debt securities would have been reflected in the calculation of the issuer's interest and dividend obligations; and
(c)	 the earnings coverage ratios for the periods referred to in subsection 9.1(1), calculated as though those debt securities had been classified as long term debt.
(6)	 For debt securities, disclosure of earnings coverage shall include language similar to the following, with the bracketed and bulleted  information completed:
"[Name of the issuer]'s interest requirements, after giving effect to the issue of [the debt securities to be distributed under the prospectus], amounted to $ for the 12 months ended .  [Name of the issuer]'s earnings before interest and income tax for the 12 months then ended was $, which is  times [name of the issuer]'s interest requirements for this period."
(7) 	For preferred share issues, disclosure of earnings coverage shall include language similar to the following, with the bracketed and bulleted information completed:
"[Name of the issuer]'s dividend requirements on all of its preferred shares, after giving effect to the issue of [the preferred shares to be distributed under the prospectus], and adjusted to a before-tax equivalent using an effective income tax rate of %, amounted to $ for the 12 months ended .  [Name of the issuer]'s interest requirements for the 12 months then ended amounted to $.  [Name of the issuer]'s earnings before interest and income tax for the 12 months ended  was $, which is  times [name of the issuer]'s aggregate dividend and interest requirements for this period."
(8) 	Other earnings coverage calculations may be included as supplementary disclosure to the required earnings coverage calculations outlined above as long as their derivation is disclosed and they are not given greater prominence than the required earnings coverage calculations.

FORM 41-101F2
INFORMATION REQUIRED IN AN INVESTMENT FUND PROSPECTUS
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
(1)	The objective of the prospectus is to provide information concerning the investment fund that an investor needs in order to make an informed investment decision. This Form sets out specific disclosure requirements that are in addition to the general requirement under securities legislation to provide full, true and plain disclosure of all material facts relating to the securities to be distributed. This Form does not prohibit including information beyond what the Form requires. Further, certain rules of specific application impose prospectus disclosure obligations in addition to those described in this Form. 
(2)	Terms used and not defined in this Form that are defined or interpreted in the Instrument must bear that definition or interpretation. Other definitions are set out in NI 14-101 Definitions.
(3)	In determining the degree of detail required, a standard of materiality must be applied. Materiality is a matter of judgment in the particular circumstance, and is determined in relation to an item's significance to investors, analysts and other users of the information. An item of information, or an aggregate of items, is considered material if it is probable that its omission or misstatement would influence or change an investment decision with respect to the investment fund's securities. In determining whether information is material, take into account both quantitative and qualitative factors. The potential significance of items must be considered individually rather than on a net basis, if the items have an offsetting effect. This concept of materiality is consistent with the financial reporting notion of materiality contained in the Handbook. 
(4)	Unless an item specifically requires disclosure only in the preliminary prospectus, the disclosure requirements set out in this Form apply to both the preliminary prospectus and the prospectus. Details concerning the price and other matters dependent upon or relating to price, such as the number of securities being distributed, may be left out of the preliminary prospectus, along with specifics concerning the plan of distribution, to the extent that these matters have not been decided. 
(5)	The disclosure must be understandable to readers and presented in an easy-to-read format. The presentation of information should comply with the plain language principles listed in section 4.1 of Companion Policy 41-101CP General Prospectus Requirements. If technical terms are required, clear and concise explanations should be included.
(6)	No reference need be made to inapplicable items and, unless otherwise required in this Form, negative answers to items may be omitted.
(7)	The disclosure required in this Form must be presented in the order and using the headings specified in the Form. However, scholarship plans may make modifications to the disclosure items in order to reflect the special nature of their investment structure and distribution mechanism. 
(8)	Where the term "investment fund" is used, it may be necessary, in order to meet the requirement for full, true and plain disclosure of all material facts, to also include disclosure with respect to the investment fund's subsidiaries and investees.

(1) 	For a commodity pool, state in substantially the following words:
"You should carefully consider whether your financial condition permits you to participate in this investment. The securities of this commodity pool are highly speculative and involve a high degree of risk. You may lose a substantial portion or even all of the money you place in the commodity pool.
The risk of loss in trading [nature of instruments to be traded by the commodity pool] can be substantial. In considering whether to participate in the [commodity pool], you should be aware that trading [nature of instruments] can quickly lead to large losses as well as gains.  Such trading losses can sharply reduce the net asset value of the [commodity pool] and consequently the value of your interest in the [commodity pool]. Also, market conditions may make it difficult or impossible for the [commodity pool] to liquidate a position. 
The [commodity pool] is subject to certain conflicts of interest.  The [commodity pool] will be subject to the charges payable by it as described in this prospectus that must be offset by revenues and trading gains before an investor is entitled to a return on his or her investment. It may be necessary for the [commodity pool] to make substantial trading profits to avoid depletion or exhaustion of its assets before an investor is entitled to a return on his or her investment."
(2) 	For the initial prospectus, state in substantially the following words:
"The [commodity pool] is newly organized.  The success of the [commodity pool] will depend upon a number of conditions that are beyond the control of the [commodity pool].  There is substantial risk that the goals of the [commodity pool] will not be met."
(3)	If the promoter, manager, or a portfolio adviser of the commodity pool has not had a similar involvement with any other publicly offered commodity pool, state in substantially the following words:
"The [promoter], [manager] [and/or] [portfolio adviser] of the [commodity pool] has not previously operated any other publicly offered commodity pools [or traded other accounts]." 
(4)	If the commodity pool will execute trades outside Canada, state in substantially the following words:
"Participation in transactions in [nature of instrument to be traded by the commodity pool] involves the execution and clearing of trades on or subject to the rules of a foreign market.
None of the Canadian securities regulatory authorities or Canadian exchanges regulates activities of any foreign markets, including the execution, delivery and clearing transactions, or has the power to compel enforcement of the rule of a foreign market or any applicable foreign law. Generally, any foreign transaction will be governed by applicable foreign laws. This is true even if the foreign market is formally linked to a Canadian market so that a position taken on a market may be liquidated by a transaction on another market. Moreover, such laws or regulations will vary depending on the foreign country in which the transaction occurs.  
For these reasons, entities such as the commodity pool that trade [nature of instrument to be traded by the commodity pool] may not be afforded certain of the protective measures provided by Canadian legislation and the rules of Canadian exchanges. In particular, funds received from customers for transactions may not be provided the same protection as funds received in respect of transactions on Canadian exchanges."
(5)	State that the commodity pool is a mutual fund but that certain provisions of securities legislation designed to protect investors who purchase securities of mutual funds do not apply.
(6)	Immediately after the statements required by subsections (1) - (5), state in substantially the following words:
"These brief statements do not disclose all the risks and other significant aspects of investing in the [commodity pool]. You should therefore carefully study this prospectus, including a description of the principal risk factors at page [page number], before you decide to invest in the [commodity pool]."
1.13	Restricted Securities 
Describe the number and class or classes of restricted securities being distributed using the appropriate restricted security terms in the same type face and type size as the rest of the description.

"The manager is incorporated, continued or otherwise governed under the laws of a foreign jurisdiction or resides outside Canada.  Although the manager has appointed [name and address of agent for service] as its agent for service of process in Canada, it may not be possible for investors to realize on judgements obtained in Canada against the manager."
1.15	Documents Incorporated by Reference 
For an investment fund in continuous distribution, other than a scholarship plan, state in substantially the following words:
"Additional information about the Fund is available in the following documents:
* the most recently filed annual financial statements;
* any interim financial statements filed after those annual financial statements;
* the most recently filed annual management report of fund performance;
* any interim management report of fund performance filed after that annual management report of fund performance.
These documents are incorporated by reference into this prospectus which means that they legally form part of this prospectus. Please see the "Documents Incorporated by Reference" section for further details."

Pursuant to the First Nations Sacred Ceremonial Objects Repatriation Act (FNSCORA) and the Blackfoot Sacred Ceremonial Objects Repatriation Regulation made under that Act, the Province of Alberta as represented by the Minister of Tourism, Parks, Recreation and Culture hereby gives notice of receipt of a repatriation application from a member of the Blood Tribe for an object in the Government of Alberta's collections at the Royal Alberta Museum.
The application is for the repatriation of the Natoas Headdress Bundle (H89.220.375.1-42a-d), which originated with the Montana Blackfeet. The bundle was used in the Sundance ceremony and contains the distinctive headdress worn by a Holy Woman, a badger skin, a digging stick, bladder bags, rattles and other diverse elements. The bundle was purchased by the Royal Alberta Museum in 1989.  
Any person with interest in this object who either wishes to make written representations to the Minister relating to this application or to submit an application of their own, must do so within 30 days after publication of this notice in The Alberta Gazette. For further information, an interested person should contact the Assistant Curator of Ethnology at the Royal Alberta Museum, 12845-102 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 0M6. The Assistant Curator of Ethnology can also be reached by telephone at (780) 453-9161 or by fax at (780) 454-6629. 
Repatriation of the Natoas Headdress Bundle to the Mookaakin Heritage Foundation, as the designated representative of the Blood Tribe, may proceed after the 30 day period if the object listed in the application is determined to meet the criteria of a sacred ceremonial object as defined in FNSCORA, no additional applications or contrary written representations have been made, and if the Minister considers repatriation to be appropriate.
