The provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec have introduced regulations requiring the holders of unclaimed property to make reasonable efforts to locate and contact their rightful owners, if their last known address was in one of those three provinces. If all efforts taken by the holders are unsuccessful, then information on the unclaimed property will be made accessible to the public in order to facilitate its return to the owner.
The definition of unclaimed property is any property in possession of a “holder” that has been left by the owner with no instruction, claim or transactions for a given period of time as set out by legislation.
*CI Global Asset Management may be the “holder” of such unclaimed property. The "owner" would be the individual who has an interest in the property.
If you think you might be the owner of unclaimed property, you can search our Unclaimed Property Database by name. This searchable database contains a list of unclaimed property currently held by CI Global Asset Management. If your search is successful, only the name of the asset holder will be displayed. In order for a match to be successful, the First and Last name fields must be identical to how the account is currently registered at CI Global Asset Management. Individuals who use different variations for their registration are encouraged to search under those variations so as to further confirm whether there is a successful match on the database.
If you wish to proceed with your inquiry and make a claim, please contact our Client Services Department. A representative will assist you in the process of re-uniting you with your unclaimed property.
Our Financial Service Representatives are available to speak with you between 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday to Friday.
** All claims will be subject to an initial security check which will allow us to ascertain the validity of the claim before proceeding further with the process.
