TORONTO, June 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bloom Investment Counsel, Inc. (the “Manager”) announces that it intends to terminate and wind-up Bloom Canada Dividend Fund (the “Fund”) on or about August 5, 2020 (the “Termination Date”).  The Manager believes it is in the best interests of the Fund’s unitholders to terminate the Fund based on the current size of the Fund.

The Fund will continue to facilitate redemptions from the Fund prior to the Termination Date, but, effective June 4, 2020, will cease to facilitate conversions between series of the Fund and will not accept new purchases of units of the Fund.

Series A, Series D, Series F, Series F6 and Series I units of the Fund will be redeemed for cash based on the net asset value per unit of each series as at the close of business on the Termination Date.
