Annual Shareholders Meeting

The location of the annual meeting of shareholders has changed from Vantage Venues, 150 King Street West, Toronto, Ontario, to 165 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario.

The health and well-being of our shareholders, employees and community is our number one priority. Considering the directives from public health officials on group settings, the Board of Directors believes the safest way to participate in the upcoming annual meeting is remotely. Economic has organized a live webinar to support public health efforts in managing COVID-19 and is urging its shareholders to vote by proxy and asking interested stakeholders and shareholders to remain at home and not attend the annual meeting in person. See below for further details on how to attend the live webinar.

This is not a virtual meeting. Shareholders cannot vote as part of the webinar and are strongly encouraged to vote by proxy in advance of the meeting by one of the methods described in the Management Information Circular (available at www.sedar.com) and proxy materials previously distributed for the meeting. The deadline to vote your proxy in advance of the meeting is Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time.

Note that proxy materials previously distributed will not be updated to reflect the change of location and addition of a live webinar. Proxy materials may continue to be used to vote your shares in connection with the annual meeting.

Shareholders and interested stakeholders may send questions regarding the annual meeting to cartyr@e-lfinancial.com for more information.
