The Notes bear interest at a fixed rate of 5.01 per cent per annum (paid semi-annually) until February 1, 2028 and at Daily Compounded CORRA plus 2.12 per cent thereafter until their maturity on February 1, 2033 (paid quarterly). The expected closing date is January 31, 2023. RBC Capital Markets is acting as lead agent on the issue.
