CT Real Estate Investment Trust to hold Annual Meeting of Unitholders virtually due to COVID-19

April 14, 2020

TORONTO, April 14, 2020 /CNW/ - CT Real Estate Investment Trust ("CT REIT") (TSX: CRT.UN) announced today that it will now hold its upcoming annual meeting (the "Meeting") of holders of CT REIT units (the "Trust Units") and holders of special voting units (the "Special Voting Units", and together with the Trust Units, the "Units") of CT REIT (collectively referred to as "Unitholders") on May 5, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. (EDT) virtually via live audio webcast and teleconference.

The decision to change the Meeting to a virtual format has been made in light of the recommendations and restrictions by authorities to proactively address the public health impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and to mitigate risks to the health and safety of our Unitholders and the broader community. As a result of these recommendations and restrictions, it will not be possible to attend the Meeting in person. All Unitholders as of the close of business on March 17, 2020 regardless of geographic location, will be able to virtually attend and vote during the Meeting. CT REIT's Management Information Circular of March 12, 2020 (the "Circular") and proxy-related materials will not be updated to reflect the change in location and format of the Meeting and may continue to be used by Unitholders to vote during the Meeting.

Voting in Advance of the Virtual Meeting

Unitholders are strongly encouraged to vote in advance of the Meeting using one of the methods described in the voting instruction form or the form of proxy accompanying the Circular. Please refer to the "Voting Information" section of the Circular for additional details on how to vote in advance of the Meeting.

Attending and Voting at the Virtual Meeting

Unitholders will be able to participate in the Meeting through an online platform that will be made accessible through CT REIT's website at

Unitholders may also listen to the Meeting through a teleconference but will not be able to vote or ask questions.

Unitholders are invited to attend the Meeting as follows:

  • Non-Registered Unitholders . If you are a non-registered beneficial Unitholder (i.e., if your Units are held indirectly through an intermediary such as a bank, trust company, securities broker or other intermediary), you may attend, vote your Units and ask questions at the Meeting through the online platform accessible through, by logging in using the Control Number on your voting instruction form. If you have voted in advance of the Meeting, logging in to the online platform as a "Unitholder" and voting during the Meeting will revoke your previous voting instructions.

  • Registered Unitholders . If you are a registered Unitholder, you may attend the Meeting through the online platform accessible through by logging in as a "guest". Unitholders attending the Meeting as a guest are unable to vote or pose questions through the online platform. To vote your Units during the Meeting, you must follow the online or telephone voting instructions outlined on your proxy form. You may vote your Units at any time in advance of or during the Meeting until the Chairman announces that voting has closed.

As physical in-person attendance at the Meeting will not be possible, Unitholders should not appoint a proxyholder other than the proxyholders named in the proxy form or voting instruction form (the "Management Nominees") to participate in and vote during the Meeting. Unitholders that have appointed a proxyholder, other than the Management Nominees, should visit our Meeting website at for more information.

If you plan on participating in the Meeting through the online platform, you should allow ample time to log in prior to the Meeting. The Meeting will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. (EDT) on May 5, 2020, unless it is adjourned or postponed. Once logged in to the online platform, it is important that you remain connected to the internet for the duration of the Meeting. If you encounter any technical difficulties during the check-in process or during the virtual Meeting, please call the technical support number that will be posted on the online platform log in page.

To facilitate Unitholders voting their Units virtually during the Meeting, CT REIT is waiving the proxy cut-off time disclosed in the Circular.

Unitholders are encouraged to visit for any further updates in advance of the Meeting.
