The certificates represent the beneficial ownership in the trust, primary assets of which are 38 loans secured by 43 Canadian commercial properties.

Per the PSA, annual reporting of operating statements begins with the year ending Dec. 31, 2013 . RATINGS SENSITIVITY All rated classes maintain Stable Outlooks.
