The risk rating of the DCP is adjusted following a risk assessment conducted by DGAM in accordance with the standardized risk classification methodology, set out in Regulation 81-102 Investment Funds. The methodology is based on the historical volatility of the ETF, as measured by the 10-year standard deviation of the returns of the ETF. If an ETF has less than 10 years of performance history, DGAM calculates the investment risk level of the ETF using the return history of the ETF, and, for the remainder of the 10-year period, the return history of a reference index that reasonably approximates the standard deviation of the ETF.

Please note that the DCP's investment objectives and strategies remain unchanged.
