EdgePoint maintains policies and procedures in accordance with the provincial regulations of Alberta, British Columbia and Quebec, with respect to unclaimed property. Generally, property is deemed to be "unclaimed" if mail and cheques have been returned to us and we have been unable to locate the investor for a three-year period or longer. EdgePoint makes all reasonable efforts to locate and notify owners of their unclaimed property by contacting their financial advisor and/or writing to the owner at their last known address. EdgePoint maintains a list of owners of unclaimed property who we have been unable to contact.
If you are or have been a resident of Alberta, British Columbia or Quebec, and would like to make an inquiry on unclaimed property, please contact our head office at 1.866.757.7207 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
