Direct Registration System (DRS)
Once you have purchased Trust units through a third-party financial professional, the DRS option gives you the ability to transfer your units from your broker to the Trust's transfer agents (Computershare for U.S. unitholders and TSX Trust Company for Canadian unitholders). DRS is the electronic or book-entry form of security ownership offered by and only through transfer agents and allows a unitholder to hold Trust units in that holder’s name directly as opposed to electronic security ownership through a broker. The DRS option went into effect on October 5, 2017, for unitholders of each of the Trusts (read press release).
