(b) the subsequent values of the investment referred to in paragraph (a) at the end of each year in the perioddetermined under subsection (3); and

(c) assuming a level of $10,000 at the beginning of the period determined under subsection (3), thesubsequent levels of each index selected under subsection (6) at the end of each year in the perioddetermined under subsection (3).

(3) The period covered by the line graph is an unbroken period that

(a) ends on December 31 of the year before the date of the fund summary; and

(b) consists of the least of

(i) 10 years,

(ii) the time since the inception of the mutual fund, and

How the Fund has performed in the past does not necessarily indicate howit will perform in the future."

(a) one or more appropriate broad-based securities market indices; and

(b) at the option of the mutual fund, one or more non-securities financial indices or narrowly-based marketindices that reflect the market sectors in which the mutual fund invests.

(4) It may be appropriate for a mutual fund that invests in more than one type of security to compare its performanceto a mix of relevant indices. For example, a balanced fund may wish to compare its performance to both a bondindex and an equity index or to a blended return based on a combination of the returns of the bond index and theequity index, in proportions comparable to the mutual fund's own investment mix.

(5) In addition to the appropriate broad-based securities market index, the mutual fund may compare its performanceto other more financial or narrowly based securities indices that reflect the market sectors in which the mutual fundinvests or that provide useful comparatives to the performance of the mutual fund. For example, a mutual fundcould compare its performance to an index that measured the performance of certain sectors of the stock market(e.g. communications companies, financial sector companies, etc.) or to a non-securities index, such as theConsumer Price Index, so long as the comparison is not misleading.

The Fund returns assume that all distributions made by the Fund in those periods werereinvested in additional [units/shares] of the Fund, and the returns do not take into account sales, redemption,distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by you that would have reduced your returns. How theFund has performed in the past does not necessarily indicate how it will perform in the future."

1. The references in proposed National Instrument 81-102 Mutual Funds ("NI81-102") will be changed from "simplified prospectus" to "fundsummary".

2. In the Notice, the Canadian Securities Administrators (the "CSA") seek comment on whether mandatory or optional suitability disclosure isappropriate. The CSA note that, in the U.S., disclosure of suitability is optional in the risk/return summary to be contained in the fund profile andprospectus.

3. Paragraph 5.1(1)(c) of NI81-102 provides that the approval of securityholders of a mutual fund must be obtained before any change is made tothe fundamental investment objectives of the mutual fund. That section of that proposed Instrument will be amended to clarify that, for that purpose,the fundamental investment objectives of a mutual fund are those set out in response to this Item.

4. This requirement is currently found in section 16.1 of NI81-102, and will be deleted from NI81-102 when that proposed Instrument is next revised.

5. The performance data required to be disclosed under this Item is to be derived in accordance with the requirements contained in NI81-102. Thoseprovisions will be revised as necessary in order to be consistent with the proposed Instrument and this Form. In addition, the rules for calculatingmanagement expense ratio will be moved into NI81-102 from the proposed Instrument, and appropriate changes made to the performance datarules in NI81-102 to reflect the approach taken in the proposed Instrument regarding the calculation of the management expense ratio.

6. Paragraph 15.4(1)(a)(i) of NI81-102 prohibits a mutual fund from including performance data in sales communications unless the mutual fund hasoffered securities under a prospectus or simplified prospectus in a jurisdiction for at least one completed financial year.

7. The language in this subsection refers to the net asset value per security instead of the initial value and redeemable value. A corresponding changewill be made to the language used in NI81-102.

8. Subsection 15.5(5) of NI81-102 requires that the redeemable value and initial value of securities of a mutual fund must be determined by applyingassumptions to a hypothetical securityholder account in certain circumstances. Subsection 15.5(1) of NI81-102 sets out the general assumptionsthat are to be made in the calculation of standard performance data of a mutual fund. Subsection 15.5(6) of NI81-102 provides that the calculationof total return for a mutual fund may be simplified by assuming a hypothetical investment of one security of the mutual fund in the manner set outin that subsection, in certain circumstances.

9. Paragraph 15.4(1)(i) of NI81-102 applies if any of a number of stipulated changes (such as changes in the management of the mutual fund,changes in fees and charges or any major reorganization of the mutual fund) have occurred during the performance measurement period that couldhave materially affected the performance of the mutual fund. Paragraph 15.4(1)(i) prohibits a sales communication pertaining to a mutual fund fromcontaining related performance data unless the sales communication contains summary disclosure of those changes.

10. Paragraph 15.4(1)(j) of NI81-102 permits disclosure of only very recent seven day performance data for money market funds. This Form, consistentwith this approach, does not permit disclosure of past performance data for money market funds, except as permitted under Item 11.1. The CSAare of the view that a bar chart prepared in accordance with Item 11.1 is useful disclosure in respect of money market funds in order to illustrateto investors the changes that are possible from year to year in the performance of money market funds.

11. The information contained in this table is presented in reverse chronological order; parallel changes will be made to the advertising requirementsof NI81-102.

12. Subsection 15.5(4) of NI81-102 defines the terms "standard performance data", "current yield", "effective yield", "seven day return" and "totalreturn". Subsection 15.5(3) of NI81-102 describes the factors on which the calculation of standard performance data must be based. Paragraph15.5(7)(a) of NI81-102 states that standard performance data for a mutual fund other than a money market fund shall be calculated to the nearestone-tenth of one percent.

13. This provision reflects the method of calculating the issue price and redemption price described in sections 9.3 and 10.3, respectively, of NI81-102.
