ACCOUNT ACCESS QUESTIONS

Is there any limit on how many accounts I can include?

    Provided that all relevant parties sign the Client Internet Access Agreement, you can see virtually all of your accounts; including personal accounts, a spouse’s account, joint accounts, your personal holding company, etc.

I have more than one investment advisor at Canaccord. Can I see all these accounts under one User Name?

    This can be done by e-mail or by calling Client Support (1.866.444.4495) and asking for ‘Exception Processing’. You will need to provide your current User Name and the list of additional accounts that you want added to the existing User Name. You must either be the owner of or have authority over the requested accounts. Do NOT provide any password information during any Client Support process. You will be contacted once the change has been made.

I have more than one User Name. Can they all be combined into one?

    This can be done by e-mail or by calling Client Support (1.866.444.4495) and asking for ‘Exception Processing’. Provide your name and the list of User Names you wish to have combined. Do NOT provide any password information during any Client Support process.

I have sent in my application. When will my access to My Account be available?

    You will be notified by e-mail when your account is set up. You will receive two separate e-mails: one with your User Name and a second one with a temporary password. You may contact your investment advisor to have your account status checked, but the information you need to log in will only be available from the e-mails sent to you as your investment advisor does not have access to your User Name or password.

Why do I need different User Names and passwords for Research and My Account?

    Canaccord research materials are currently not displayed on secured pages; because of this, we strongly encourage you to have a different User Name/password for each section.

How do I print off information?

    The best way to print off information is to click on the “Printable Version” link in the top right corner of your screen. This will produce a version that fits on an 8 ½ x 11” sheet of paper (letter size).

How is foreign content calculated for my RRSP?

    Foreign content is calculated by comparing the cost of foreign securities in your RRSP to the total cost of all securities plus cash in your RRSP. In other words, the calculation is based on what you actually paid for the foreign security and other securities, not what they are presently valued at.

What does "conversion" mean?

    In 1997 Canaccord changed the company that keeps track of all our accounts and activity. At this time, client accounts were transferred onto the new system – this is called a conversion. If your account with Canaccord dates back to April, 1997 or later, you may see a series of transactions at the very beginning of your account activity that reflect these transfers. The description will read ‘Conversion Detail’.

Can I make suggestions for improvements to My Account?

    Canaccord is always interested in your feedback. Please send your suggestions or comments to us via e-mail .

How do I submit a name and/or address change?

    Address changes must be in writing with the signature of all parties to an account. A signed request to change your address should be faxed or mailed to your investment advisor. E-mails are not acceptable as we require signatures.

    Name changes must also be in writing and accompanied by a copy of either a legal Name Change Certificate or a Marriage/Divorce Certificate. A signed request to change the name on your account should also be faxed or mailed to your investment advisor.

    No, once you have subscribed to eDocs, mailing of paper statements and trade confirmations will be discontinued.

Are there any documents that I will continue to receive in the mail?

    At this time, you will still receive prospectuses, offering memoranda and information statements in the mail. These may become available online at a future date. You will also continue to receive Issuer mailings (e.g. proxy materials, etc.) as these are not part of the Canaccord eDocuments service.

I often received enclosed announcements and materials with my mailed statements. Can I see these online?

    Additional enclosures with your statement, such as information concerning tax reporting, new services, etc. are available to view after you have opened the PDF document. Click on the “Please Select” drop-down box that is located on the top blue bar of the document page. All additional materials pertaining to the selected document will be listed and available for viewing.

How will I know if there are trade confirmations or statements to be viewed?

    Your eDocuments subscription agreement includes an undertaking by you to review the Canaccord eDocuments Service at least once every 30 days in order to check for trade confirmations, monthly statements and other documents. An online message will be posted indicating that a particular month’s statements are available for viewing. Statements are issued quarterly, unless there is activity in your account, in which case a statement will be produced for that month.

What documents can I view online?

    • Statements
    • Trade confirmations
    • Summary of security transactions (annual SSTS tax summary)

    • Go to canaccord.com >> Client Access Login >> Application Form
    • Once your Client Access login ID has been set up, you will be emailed a temporary password and will be able to access the online eDocs subscription screens in Client Access.

I have a Hold Mail on my account because I am travelling. Can I access my documents online?

    No, you must submit a request in writing to your Investment Advisor to have the Hold Mail removed
    • Once the Hold Mail request on the address is removed, you can then access the online eDocs sign up screens in Client Access.

TECHNICAL QUESTIONS & TROUBLESHOOTING

What browser should I have to properly view My Account?

    We recommend Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0, or higher, with 'cookies' and 'Javascript' enabled.

I logged in to My Account, but a screen says the server is down. Why does this happen?

    Our goal is to provide our clients with access to My Account on a 24-hour/7- day a week basis. If an outage occurs, we will keep you notified through the main login page. Occasionally, we may need to perform regular maintenance on the database or server and will schedule an outage. Where possible, these will be scheduled after midnight on weekends to minimize inconvenience.

Why can I connect to My Account from home, but not from my office internet connection?

    Your office network may be using security precautions that prevent or deny secured connections to internet sites. Please consult your office network administrator for further information.

I am having trouble logging into My Account. What might the problem be?

    If you have submitted an application form for registration and have received your User Name and password, the following factors may still cause you to be temporarily unable to access My Account.
  1. If you are trying to access My Account through your office network, you may be restricted by a firewall. You should contact your office network administrator for more information.
  2. User Names and passwords are case sensitive. Check to make sure you do not have the ‘Caps Lock’ button engaged on your keyboard.
  3. If you attempt to repeatedly log in with an incorrect password, you may be locked out of My Account. If this happens, you will need to e-mail or call Client Support (1.866.444.4495) to have your password reset.

I am having a problem accessing the login screen. What do I do?

    Check to ensure that your web browser meets our system requirements:

    • Internet Browser: Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0, or higher. We also recommend that your browser have 128-bit encryption.
    • Cookies enabled.
    • Internet connection.
    • Internet e-mail (i.e. Microsoft Exchange/Outlook, HotMail)

    If you are attempting to access My Account from an office network, please contact your office network administrator.

Why does my screen appear blank after I log in?

    If your login to My Account appears successful and does not display any error messages, you may have a corrupted cookie. Try closing your internet browser, disconnecting from your internet service provider and restarting your computer. Once you reboot, try connecting to My Account. If the problem persists, you can e-mail or call Client Support (1.866.444.4495) for further assistance.

Why does the password automatically fill out as I type?

    This is a feature of Microsoft Internet Explorer called 'autocomplete'. The browser remembers recent information and completes the field for you. For additional security we recommend disabling the 'autocomplete' feature of your browser.

I have forgotten my password. How can I get it back?

    When you connect to My Account for the first time, you were asked to supply a ‘hint’ that will help you remember your password should you forget it. Click on the ‘Forgot your password?’ option on the initial login page. A composed e-mail will appear. Fill in your User Name and send. Your password hint will be e-mailed to the e-mail address you gave us on your My Account application. If you still do not recall the password, you can e-mail or call Client Support (1.866.444.4495) and request that your password be reset. A new password will be e-mailed to you.

How do I clear my browser's cache?

    For Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers, select the "Tools" pull-down menu from the top of the screen and then select "Internet options". Click "Delete..." under the "Browsing history". Click the checkbox next to "Temporary Internet files" to check the box and click "Delete".

    For Firefox browsers, select the "History" drop-down menu from the top of the screen and then select "Clear Recent History...". Select "Everything" from the "Time range to clear:" drop-down list and then uncheck all the checkboxes, except for the "Cache" checkbox. Then click on the "Clear Now" button.

    If you are uncertain which browser/version you are using, refer to the Help function of your internet browser.

How can I upgrade my browser?

    Confirm which version and type of browser you are using by selecting ‘Help’ from the top pull-down menu of your browser, and then click on ‘About’.

    To upgrade Microsoft Internet Explorer, visit http://www.microsoft.com

What does it mean when my browser screen shows ‘Error 404. File not found’?

    This type of error (Error 400, 401, etc.) usually indicates an incorrectly typed internet address or that an internet server is disabled. Click the ‘Back’ button of your browser and retry your request. If the problem persists while using My Account, you can e-mail or call Client Support (1.866.444.4495) for further assistance.

Why does My Account data occasionally load slower than at other times?

    My Account is designed to handle a large amount of internet traffic. Many factors can affect the loading speed of data from My Account; including the performance of your computer, modem and internet service provider. Also, if your account has been very active over a long period of time, any detail requests may take longer to display than an account that has had only a few transactions per year.
