Canoe Financial is enhancing our Corporate Class structure. Many corporate class structures in the investment industry continue to be capped, or merged into trusts. Our new Portfolio Class maintains the benefits that you have come to expect from corporate class; tax-efficient income and tax-efficient growth.
