Alberta, British Columbia and Quebec have enacted laws concerning unclaimed property. As a result, Dundee has implemented policies and procedures to locate investors for whom we are holding unclaimed property, if their last known address was in one of the three provinces.
Unclaimed Property List
Unclaimed property could include brokerage accounts and securities or cash held therein, mutual fund units, limited partnership units and cheques. Property is deemed 'unclaimed' in the following circumstances: (i) written communication has been mailed to a client for whom we are holding an account and has been returned as 'undeliverable', (ii) a cheque was sent to a client for whom we are holding an account and the cheque has not been cashed; or (iii) the client has not indicated an interest in the account.
Dundee is required to make contact with clients for whom we are holding unclaimed property. Efforts to locate such individuals may be conducted by the following means: (i) correspondence with investment advisors; (ii) searching our recordkeeping system for other existing accounts; and (iii) telephone or internet searches. Dundee maintains a list of unclaimed property owners whom we have been unable to contact.

Residents of Quebec
If you are a resident of Quebec, Dundee may have transferred the unclaimed property to Revenu Quebec, which Dundee is required to do annually according to the Public Curator Act of Quebec. If Dundee has transferred your unclaimed property, you must apply to Revenu Quebec in order to reclaim your property.
