Reliance on International Dealer Exemption (“the Exemption”) pursuant to subsection 8.18(2) of National Instrument 31-103 Registration Requirements, Exemptions and Ongoing Registrant Obligations (“NI 31-103”) and Notification to Permitted Clients of the prescribed information under subsection 8.18(4)(b) of NI 31-103

This disclosure is in connection with your account(s) and transactions with, and relevant services and products offered by or through:

(each a “J.P. Morgan Entity” or collectively, the “J.P. Morgan Entities”)

Please note that as you are a client domiciled in Canada, when any J.P. Morgan Entity trades with you it does so in reliance upon the Exemption from the dealer registration requirement under NI 31-103 (as such Exemption may be amended and restated from time to time). Pursuant to the Exemption, each J.P. Morgan Entity is subject to trading restrictions, including, among other things, that each J.P. Morgan Entity  is only permitted to trade “foreign securities” with “permitted clients” (as defined in NI 31-103) resident in Canada.  A foreign security is a security issued by an issuer incorporated, formed or created under the laws of a foreign (i.e., non Canadian) jurisdiction or a security issued by a government of a foreign jurisdiction.  This serves to put you on notice that you should only place orders with a J.P. Morgan Entity for foreign securities in accordance with the Exemption.

Please also note that:

  1. None of the J.P. Morgan Entities are registered as a dealer in any Canadian province or territory;
  2. The jurisdiction of J.P. Morgan Entity’s head office or principal place of business is as follows:
