As per the BCFIRB directive issued February 5, 2018, we are required to apply the following policy on all growth quota;

a) 10/10/0 is to be applied to the first transfer of all growth quota issued to date and going forward.

b) Quota holders are to have the option to refuse or accept growth quota.

c)  Quota holders are not eligible to receive growth quota for 12 months following a transfer of any quota with one exception as follows:

            i.  If a quota transfer does not result in an overall change in total quota holdings within a business unit                (e.g. within a corporation), quota holders within that business unit remain eligible to receive growth.

d) Receipt of growth quota cannot be deferred. Offer and acceptance of growth quota is a onetime opportunity
