TransCanada's dividend reinvestment and share purchase plan allows common and preferred shareholders to purchase additional common shares by reinvesting their cash dividend without incurring brokerage or administrative fees.

A registered holder will become a participant in the plan as of the first dividend record date following receipt by our Plan Agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada, of a properly executed authorization form. Dividend record dates for common and preferred shares are generally the last business day of each March, June, September and December.

Participants may also make optional cash payments to buy additional shares of up to $10,000 (US$7,000) per quarter. Participants wishing to make such optional cash payments must ensure that their optional cash payment is received by our Plan Agent, on or prior to the common share dividend payment date. Our common share dividend payment dates are noted above under "Important Dates".

Dividends paid by TransCanada to shareholders outside Canada are subject to Canadian non-resident withholding tax. The general rate is 15 per cent for investors resident in the United States and other countries where Canadian tax treaties apply. Commencing January 1, 2001, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has required certain foreign payers of dividends or interest to U.S. persons (including resident aliens) to withhold and pay to the IRS 31 per cent of such payments (Backup Withholding). This Backup Withholding is in addition to the non-resident tax rate of 15 per cent required under Canadian law. Residents of non-treaty countries are subject under Canadian law to a 25 per cent withholding tax on dividends.
