Tax Treatment


Canadian Shareholders

Unless otherwise indicated, common and preferred share dividends paid by Enbridge Inc. (ENB), either in Cdn or US dollars, will be designated as “eligible dividends” for Canadian income tax purposes except as described below*. An eligible dividend paid to a Canadian resident is entitled to the enhanced dividend credit.

Canadian beneficial shareholders who received dividends outside of an RRSP, RRIF or DPSP should receive a T5 Supplementary slip from their brokerage firm or intermediary. Canadian registered shareholders will receive a T5 Supplementary slip from Canadian Stock Transfer Company (CST). The deadline for issuance of T5 Supplementary slips is on or before the last day of February following the calendar year to which the information applies. Please refer questions regarding the T5 slips directly to your brokerage firm or CST. If you have any questions regarding the taxation of eligible dividends, please contact your Canadian tax advisor or your local office of the Canada Revenue Agency.

Important Note: The 2013 T5 Supplementary slips issued for Registered ENB Common Shareholders were based on an estimate of the designated “eligible dividends”. Amended T5’s will be issued as soon as possible with the allocation between “eligible dividend” and the portion not designated as an “eligible dividend” based on final amounts. This will not impact the total amount of dividends reported.

*Exceptions to the above:

Non-resident Shareholders

Common share dividends paid by Enbridge Inc. will be subject to Canadian withholding tax at the rate of 25% unless the rate is reduced under the provisions of a tax treaty between Canada and the non-resident shareholder’s jurisdiction of residence. Where the non-resident shareholder is a United States resident entitled to benefits under the Canada-U.S. tax treaty, the rate of Canadian withholding tax on dividends is generally reduced to 15%. You may be eligible to claim a credit or deduction against your local taxes with respect to these Canadian non-resident withholding taxes.

Enbridge Inc. is considered to be “a qualified foreign corporation” and the dividends paid on its common shares are considered to be “qualified dividends” as those terms are defined in the U.S. Internal Revenue Code”. If you have any questions regarding the taxation of Canadian dividends in your local jurisdiction, please contact your local tax advisor.
