CT Real Estate Investment Trust (the “REIT”) is committed to upholding the values of honesty, integrity and respect in everything that we do. To ensure a clear understanding and consistent level of commitment to ethical business practices, the REIT has a Code of Conduct (the “Code”) to appropriately direct the actions of all employees and those individuals who act on behalf of the REIT. If you have any complaints or concerns regarding potential breaches, please advise us by contacting one of the reporting options listed below.

Business Conduct Compliance

Integrity, honesty and respect are core values at the REIT and we expect that each of our employees and trustees will abide by the principles and expectations set out in our Code when conducting business on behalf of the REIT.

Ethical business conduct is an important component of our reputation and the Code sets out our minimum expectations and accountabilities for managing the risks associated with unethical business conduct.

The Canadian Tire Triangle Ethics Office (TEO) provides several channels through which individuals can report breaches of the Code related to CT REIT (confidentially and anonymously) for investigation and follow-up. The TEO also provides assistance in interpreting the application of the Code.
