Restrictions on investments
3(1)  In determining market values of securities a corporation may rely on published market quotations of a recognized stock exchange in Canada or the United States of America.
(2)  In the case of an investment under section 2(e) the inclusion, as additional security under the mortgages, charges or hypothecs, of any other assets not of a class authorized by this Schedule as investments does not render the bonds, debentures or other evidences of indebtedness ineligible as an investment.
(3)  No investment may be made under section 2(e), (h) or (i) that would at the time of making the investment cause the aggregate market value of the investments made under those clauses to exceed 35% of the market value at that time of the whole trust estate.
(4)  No sale or other liquidation of any investment made under section 2(e), (h) or (i) is required solely because of any change in the ratio between the market value of those investments and the market value of the whole trust estate.
(5)  In case of an investment under section 2(i) or (j), not more than 30% of the total issue of shares of any body corporate may be purchased for any trust.
(6)  No investment shall be made under section 2(j) that, at the time of making the investment, would cause the aggregate market value of the common shares held for any particular trust fund to exceed 15% of the market value of that trust fund at that time.
(7)  No sale or other liquidation of common shares is required under this section solely because of any change in the ratio between the market value of those shares and the market value of the whole trust fund.
Court approved investments
4   In addition to the investments authorized by section 2, a corporation may invest funds in any other securities that the Court of Queen’s Bench on application in any particular case approves as fit and proper, but nothing in this section relieves the corporation of the corporation’s duty to take reasonable and proper care with respect to the investments so authorized.
Deposit of trust funds
5   A corporation may, pending the investment of any trust money, deposit it for a time that is reasonable in the circumstances
                                          (a)    in any bank or treasury branch,
                                          (b)    in any trust corporation,
                                          (c)    in any credit union, or
                                          (d)    in any loan corporation.
Registration of securities
6   Except in the case of a security that cannot be registered, a corporation that invests in securities shall require the securities to be registered in the corporation’s name, and the securities may be transferred only in the corporation’s name.
Variation of investments
7(1)  A corporation in the corporation’s discretion may
                                          (a)    call in any trust funds invested in securities other than those authorized by this Schedule and invest the funds in securities authorized by this Schedule, and
                                          (b)    vary any investments authorized by this Schedule.
(2)  No corporation is liable for a breach of trust by reason only of the corporation’s continuing to hold an investment that since its acquisition by the corporation has ceased to be one authorized by the instrument of trust or by this Schedule.
(3)  When a corporation has improperly advanced trust money on a mortgage that would at the time of the investment have been a proper investment in all respects for a lesser sum than was actually advanced, the security is deemed to be an authorized investment for that lesser sum and the corporation is liable to make good only the amount advanced in excess of the lesser amount with interest.
Concurrence by corporation in corporate schemes
8(1)  When a corporation holds securities of a body corporate in which the corporation has properly invested money under this Schedule, the corporation may concur in any compromise, scheme or arrangement
                                          (a)    for the reconstruction of the body corporate or for the winding‑up or sale or distribution of its assets,
                                          (b)    for the sale of all or any part of the property and undertaking of the body corporate to another body corporate,
                                          (c)    for the amalgamation of the body corporate with another body corporate,
                                          (d)    for the release, modification or variation of any rights, privileges or liabilities attached to the securities or any of them, or
                                          (e)    whereby
                                                    (i)    all or a majority of the shares, stock, bonds, debentures and other securities of the body corporate, or of any class of them, are to be exchanged for shares, stock, bonds, debentures or other securities of another body corporate, and
                                                   (ii)    the corporation is to accept the shares, stock, bonds, debentures or other securities of the other body corporate allotted to the corporation pursuant to the compromise, scheme or arrangement,
in like manner as if the corporation were entitled to the securities beneficially and may, if the securities are in all other respects reasonable and proper investments, accept any securities of any denomination or description of the reconstructed or purchasing or new body corporate instead of or in exchange for all or any of the original securities.
(2)  A corporation is not responsible for any loss occasioned by any act or thing done in good faith under subsection (1) and the corporation may, if the securities accepted under subsection (1) are in all other respects reasonable and proper investments, retain them for any period for which the corporation could have properly retained the original securities.
Subscription for securities
9(1)  If any conditional or preferential right to subscribe for any securities in any body corporate is offered to a corporation in respect of any holding in the body corporate, the corporation may, as to all or any of the securities,
                                          (a)    exercise that right and apply capital money subject to the trust in payment of the consideration, or renounce the right, or
                                          (b)    assign for the best consideration that can be reasonably obtained the benefit of that right, or the title to it, to any person, including any beneficiary under the trust,
without being responsible for any loss occasioned by any act or thing so done by the corporation in good faith.
(2)  Notwithstanding subsection (1), the consideration for any such assignment shall be held as capital money of the trust.
