Table of Contents

This prospectus is a base shelf prospectus. This short form base shelf prospectus has been filed under legislation in each of the provinces of Canada that permits certain information about these securities to be determined after this prospectus has become final and that permits the omission from this prospectus of that information. The legislation requires the delivery to purchasers of a prospectus supplement containing the omitted information within a specified period of time after agreeing to purchase any of these securities.

No securities regulatory authority has expressed an opinion about these securities and it is an offence to claim otherwise. This short form base shelf prospectus constitutes a public offering of these securities only in those jurisdictions where they may be lawfully offered for sale and therein only by persons permitted to sell such securities in these jurisdictions.

Information has been incorporated by reference in this short form base shelf prospectus from documents filed with securities commissions or similar authorities in Canada. Copies of the documents incorporated herein by reference may be obtained on request without charge from the Corporate Secretary of Kinross Gold Corporation at 17 th  Floor, 25 York Street, Toronto, Ontario, M5J 2V5 (Telephone (416) 365-5123), and are also available electronically at www.sedar.com.

Kinross Gold Corporation (" Kinross " or the " Corporation ") may offer and sell from time to time debt securities (" Debt Securities "), common shares of the Corporation (" Common Shares "), warrants (" Warrants ") to purchase any of the other securities that are described in this short form base shelf prospectus (the " Prospectus "), subscription receipts (" Subscription Receipts "), units (" Units ") comprised of one or more of any of the other securities that are described in this Prospectus, share purchase contracts obligating holders to purchase a specified number of Common Shares at a future date or dates, or similar contracts which may be issued on a prepaid basis (in each case, " Share Purchase Contracts ") or any combination of such securities (all of the foregoing collectively, the " Securities " and individually, a " Security ") for up to an aggregate offering price of $1,000,000,000 (or its equivalent in Canadian dollars or any other currencies), in one or more transactions during the 25-month period that this Prospectus, including any amendments hereto, remains effective.

The Corporation will provide the specific terms of any offering of Securities, including the specific terms of the Securities with respect to a particular offering and the terms of such offering, in one or more prospectus supplements (each a " Prospectus Supplement ") to this Prospectus. The Securities may be offered separately or together or in any combination, and as separate series. An investor should read this Prospectus and the applicable Prospectus Supplement carefully before investing in any Securities.

All dollar amounts in this Prospectus are in United States dollars, unless otherwise indicated. See "Currency Presentation and Exchange Rate Information".

All information permitted under applicable securities laws to be omitted from this Prospectus will be contained in one or more Prospectus Supplements that will be delivered to purchasers together with this Prospectus. For the purposes of applicable securities laws, each Prospectus Supplement will be incorporated by reference into this Prospectus as of the date of the Prospectus Supplement and only for the purposes of the distribution of the Securities to which that Prospectus Supplement pertains.

The Corporation may sell Securities directly to investors, or through agents, underwriters or dealers it selects. If the Corporation uses agents, underwriters or dealers to sell the Securities, it will name them and describe their


Table of Contents

compensation in a Prospectus Supplement. The net proceeds that the Corporation expects to receive from an offering of Securities will be described in the Prospectus Supplement relating to that offering. See "Plan of Distribution".

The Corporation has filed an undertaking with each of the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Canada that it will not distribute Securities that, at the time of distribution, are novel specified derivatives or novel asset-backed securities, without first pre-clearing with the applicable regulator the disclosure to be contained in the Prospectus Supplement pertaining to the distribution of such Securities.

The Common Shares are listed and posted for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the " TSX ") under the symbol "K". On April 27, 2018, the last trading day prior to the date of this Prospectus, the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX was Cdn$5.08. In addition, the Common Shares are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (the " NYSE ") under the symbol "KGC". On April 27, 2018, the last trading day prior to the date of this Prospectus, the closing price of the Common Shares on the NYSE was $3.96. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Prospectus Supplement, Securities other than Common Shares will not be listed on any securities exchange. There is currently no market through which such Securities may be sold and purchasers may not be able to resell any such Securities purchased under this Prospectus and the Prospectus Supplement relating to such Securities. This may affect the pricing of such Securities in the secondary market, the transparency and availability of trading prices, the liquidity of such Securities and the extent of issuer regulation. See "Risk Factors".

THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN APPROVED OR DISAPPROVED BY THE UNITED STATES SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION (THE "SEC") NOR HAS THE SEC PASSED UPON THE ACCURACY OR ADEQUACY OF THIS PROSPECTUS. ANY REPRESENTATION TO THE CONTRARY IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE.

Kinross is permitted, under a multi-jurisdictional disclosure system ("MJDS") adopted in the United States and Canada, to prepare this Prospectus in accordance with Canadian disclosure requirements. Prospective investors should be aware that such requirements are different from those of the United States. The Corporation prepares its financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IFRS"). Thus, the Corporation's financial statements may not be comparable to the financial statements of United States companies.

Purchasers of Securities should be aware that the acquisition of Securities may have tax consequences both in the United States and in Canada. Such consequences for purchasers who are resident in the United States may not be described fully herein. Purchasers of Securities should read the tax discussion contained in the applicable Prospectus Supplement with respect to a particular offering of Securities.

The enforcement by investors of civil liabilities under United States federal securities laws may be affected adversely by the fact that the Corporation is incorporated under the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada, that most of its officers and directors are residents of Canada, that some of the experts named in this Prospectus are residents of Canada, and that all or a substantial portion of the assets of the Corporation and said persons are located outside of the United States.

Directors of the Corporation residing outside of Canada have appointed Kinross Gold Corporation at 17 th  Floor, 25 York Street, Toronto, Ontario M5J 2V5 as agent for service of process. Purchasers are advised that it may not be possible for investors to enforce judgments against any person that resides outside of Canada, even if the person has appointed an agent for service of process.

An investment in Securities involves significant risks that should be carefully considered by prospective investors before purchasing Securities. The risks outlined in this Prospectus and in the documents incorporated by reference herein, including the applicable Prospectus Supplement, should be carefully reviewed and considered by prospective investors in connection with any investment in Securities. See "Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information" and "Risk Factors".

As of the date of this Prospectus, no underwriter or dealer is in a contractual relationship with the Corporation requiring the underwriter or dealer to distribute under this Prospectus .

The Corporation's head and registered office is located at 17 th  Floor, 25 York Street, Toronto, Ontario, M5J 2V5.

ABOUT THIS SHORT FORM PROSPECTUS

        In this Prospectus, the Corporation and its subsidiaries are collectively referred to as the "Corporation" or "Kinross", unless the context otherwise requires. The Corporation has not authorized anyone to provide readers with information different from that contained in this Prospectus or in any free writing prospectus prepared by the Corporation. The Corporation takes no responsibility for, and can provide no assurance as to the reliability of any other information that others may give readers of this Prospectus. The Corporation is not making an offer of Securities in any jurisdiction where the offer is not permitted.

        Readers should not assume that the information contained or incorporated by reference in this Prospectus is accurate as of any date other than the date of this Prospectus or the respective dates of the documents incorporated by reference herein, unless otherwise noted herein or as required by law. It should be assumed that the information appearing in this Prospectus, any Prospectus Supplement and the documents incorporated by reference herein and therein are accurate only as of their respective dates. The business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects of the Corporation may have changed since those dates.

        This Prospectus shall not be used by anyone for any purpose other than in connection with an offering of Securities as described in one or more Prospectus Supplements. The Corporation does not undertake to update the information contained or incorporated by reference herein, including any Prospectus Supplement, except as required by applicable securities laws. Information contained on, or otherwise accessed through, the website of the Corporation, www.kinross.com, shall not be deemed to be a part of this Prospectus and such information is not incorporated by reference herein.


CAUTIONARY STATEMENT ON FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

        All statements, other than statements of historical fact, contained or incorporated by reference in this Prospectus including, but not limited to, any information as to the future financial or operating performance of Kinross, constitute "forward-looking information" or "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of certain securities laws, including the provisions of the Securities Act (Ontario) and the provisions for "safe harbor" under the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are based on expectations, estimates and projections as of the date of this Prospectus, or in the case of any documents incorporated by reference herein, as of the date of such documents.

        Forward-looking statements contained or incorporated by reference in this Prospectus, include, without limitation, statements with respect to our guidance for production; production costs of sales, all-in sustaining cost and capital expenditures; the schedules and budgets for the Corporation's development projects and continuous improvement initiatives, as well as references to other possible events; the future price of gold and silver; the timing and amount of estimated future production; costs of production; capital expenditures; costs and timing of the development of projects and new deposits; success of exploration, development and mining activities; currency fluctuations; capital requirements; project studies; mine life extensions; restarting suspended or disrupted operations; continuous improvement initiatives; and resolution of pending litigation. The words "advance", "anticipate", "assumption", "believe", "estimates", "expects", "forecast", "focus", "forward", "guidance", "initiative", "measures", "on budget", "outlook", "opportunity", "plan", "potential", "progress", "project", "projection", "well positioned" or variations of or similar such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results may, could, should or will be achieved, received or taken, or will occur or result and similar such expressions identify forward-looking statements.

        Forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon a number of estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by Kinross as of the date of such statements, are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. The estimates, models and assumptions of Kinross referenced, contained or incorporated by reference in this Prospectus, which may prove to be incorrect, include, but are not limited to, the various assumptions set forth in the AIF and 2017 MD&A (all as defined below and incorporated by reference into this Prospectus) as well as: (1) there being no significant disruptions affecting the operations of the Corporation, whether due to extreme weather events (including, without limitation, excessive or lack of rainfall, in particular, the potential for further production curtailments at Paracatu resulting from insufficient rainfall) and other or related natural disasters, labour disruptions (including, but not limited to, workforce reductions), supply disruptions, power disruptions, damage to equipment or otherwise; (2) permitting, development, operations and production from the Corporation's operations being consistent with Kinross'

1


Table of Contents

current expectations including, without limitation, the maintenance of existing permits and approvals and the timely receipt of all permits and authorizations necessary for the development and operation of the Tasiast Phase Two expansion and the Round Mountain Phase W expansion including, without limitation, work permits, necessary import authorizations for goods and equipment and exploration license conversions at Tasiast and land acquisitions and permitting for the construction and operation of the new tailings facility, water and power supply and launch of the new tailings reprocessing facility at Paracatu; (3) political and legal developments in any jurisdiction in which the Corporation operates being consistent with its current expectations including, without limitation, the impact of any political tensions and uncertainty in the Russian Federation and Ukraine or any related sanctions and any other similar restrictions or penalties imposed, or actions taken, by any government, including but not limited to potential power rationing, tailings facility regulation and amendments to mining laws in Brazil, potential amendments to water laws and/or other water use restrictions and regulatory actions in Chile, potential amendments to minerals and mining laws, energy levies laws, and dam safety regulation in Ghana, potential amendments to customs and mining laws (including but not limited amendments to the VAT) and regulations relating to work permits in Mauritania, the potential passing of Environmental Protection Agency regulations in the US relating to the provision of financial assurances under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act and potential amendments to and enforcement of tax laws in Russia (including, but not limited to, the interpretation, implementation, application and enforcement of any such laws and amendments thereto), being consistent with Kinross' current expectations; (4) the exchange rate between the Canadian dollar, Brazilian real, Chilean peso, Russian rouble, Mauritanian ouguiya, Ghanaian cedi and the United States dollar being approximately consistent with current levels; (5) certain price assumptions for gold and silver; (6) prices for diesel, natural gas, fuel oil, electricity and other key supplies being approximately consistent with current levels; (7) production and cost of sales forecasts for the Corporation meeting expectations; (8) the accuracy of the current mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates of the Corporation (including but not limited to ore tonnage and ore grade estimates) and mine plans for the Corporation's mining operations (including but not limited to throughput and recoveries being affected by metallurgical characteristics at Paracatu); (9) labour and materials costs increasing on a basis consistent with Kinross' current expectations; (10) the terms and conditions of the legal and fiscal stability agreements for the Tasiast and Chirano operations being interpreted and applied in a manner consistent with their intent and Kinross' expectations; (11) goodwill and/or asset impairment potential; (12) the regulatory and legislative regime regarding mining, electricity production and transmission (including rules related to power tariffs) in Brazil being consistent with the Corporation's current expectations; and (13) access to capital markets, including but not limited to maintaining a debt rating consistent with the Corporation's current expectations.

        Known and unknown factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, but are not limited to: sanctions (or any other similar restrictions or penalties) now or subsequently imposed, or other actions taken, by, against, in respect of or otherwise impacting any jurisdiction in which the Corporation is domiciled or operates (including but not limited to the Russian Federation, Canada, the European Union and the United States), or any government or citizens of, persons or companies domiciled in, or the Corporation's business, operations or other activities in, any such jurisdiction; fluctuations in the currency markets; fluctuations in the spot and forward price of gold or certain other commodities (such as fuel and electricity); changes in the discount rates applied to calculate the present value of net future cash flows based on country-specific real weighted average cost of capital; changes in the market valuations of peer group gold producers and the Corporation, and the resulting impact on market price to net asset value multiples; changes in various market variables, such as interest rates, foreign exchange rates, gold or silver prices and lease rates, or global fuel prices, that could impact the mark-to-market value of outstanding derivative instruments and ongoing payments/receipts under any financial obligations; risks arising from holding derivative instruments (such as credit risk, market liquidity risk and mark-to-market risk); changes in national and local government legislation, taxation (including but not limited to income tax, advance income tax, stamp tax, withholding tax, capital tax, tariffs, value-added or sales tax, capital outflow tax, capital gains tax, windfall or windfall profits tax, royalty, excise tax, customs/import or export taxes/duties, asset taxes, asset transfer tax, property use or other real estate tax, together with any related fine, penalty, surcharge, or interest imposed in connection with such taxes), controls, policies and regulations; the security of personnel and assets; political or economic developments in Canada, the United States, Chile, Brazil, Russia, Mauritania, Ghana, or other countries in which Kinross does business or may carry on business; business opportunities that may be

presented to, or pursued by, us; our ability to successfully integrate acquisitions and complete divestitures; operating or technical difficulties in connection with mining or development activities; employee relations; litigation or other claims against, or regulatory investigations and/or any enforcement actions or sanctions in respect of the Corporation (and/or its directors, officers, or employees) including, but not limited to, securities class action litigation in Canada and/or the United States, or any investigations, enforcement actions and/or sanctions under any applicable anti-corruption, international sanctions and/or anti-money laundering laws and regulations in Canada, the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction; the speculative nature of gold exploration and development including, but not limited to, the risks of obtaining necessary licenses and permits; diminishing quantities or grades of reserves; adverse changes in our credit rating; and contests over title to properties, particularly title to undeveloped properties. In addition, there are risks and hazards associated with the business of gold exploration, development and mining, including environmental hazards, industrial accidents, unusual or unexpected formations, pressures, cave-ins, flooding and gold bullion losses (and the risk of inadequate insurance, or the inability to obtain insurance, to cover these risks). Many of these uncertainties and contingencies can directly or indirectly affect, and could cause, Kinross' actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements made by, or on behalf of, Kinross, including but not limited to resulting in an impairment charge on goodwill and/or assets. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Forward-looking statements are provided for the purpose of providing information about management's expectations and plans relating to the future.

         All of the forward-looking statements made in this Prospectus are qualified by these cautionary statements and those made in our other filings with the securities regulators of Canada and the United States including, but not limited to, the cautionary statements made in the "Risk Factors" section of our AIF and the "Risk Analysis" sections of our 2017 MD&A. These factors are not intended to represent a complete list of the factors that could affect Kinross. Kinross disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements or to explain any material difference between subsequent actual events and such forward-looking statements, except to the extent required by applicable law. The Corporation's public filings with the securities commissions or similar authorities in each of the provinces of Canada can be found through the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval ("SEDAR") on the Corporation's profile at www.sedar.com.


NOTICE REGARDING PRESENTATION OF OUR MINERAL RESERVE AND RESOURCE ESTIMATES

        In accordance with applicable Canadian securities regulatory requirements, all mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates of Kinross incorporated by reference in this Prospectus have been prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 —  Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (" NI 43-101 "), classified in accordance with Canadian Institute of Mining Metallurgy and Petroleum's " CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves Definitions and Guidelines " (the " CIM Guidelines "). The definitions of mineral reserves and mineral resources are set out in our disclosure of our mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates that are incorporated by reference in this Prospectus.

        Kinross uses the terms "mineral resources", "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral resources" and "inferred mineral resources". While those terms are recognized by Canadian securities regulatory authorities, they are not recognized by the SEC. Pursuant to the CIM Guidelines, mineral resources have a higher degree of uncertainty than mineral reserves as to their existence as well as their economic and legal feasibility. Inferred mineral resources, when compared with measured or indicated mineral resources, have the least certainty as to their existence, and it cannot be assumed that all or any part of inferred mineral resources will be upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource as a result of continued exploration. Pursuant to NI 43-101, inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of any economic analysis, including any feasibility study. Accordingly, investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of a mineral resource exists, will ever be converted into a mineral reserve, or is or will ever be economically or legally mineable or recovered.

        If, after the date of this Prospectus, Kinross is required by Section 4.2(1)(j) of NI 43-101 to file a technical report to support scientific or technical information that relates to a mineral project on a property material to the Corporation, Kinross will file such technical report in accordance with Section 4.2(5)(a)(i) of NI 43-101 as if the words "preliminary short form prospectus" refer to a "shelf prospectus supplement".

ENFORCEMENT OF CERTAIN CIVIL LIABILITIES

        The Corporation is a corporation existing under the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada. A majority of the assets of the Corporation are located outside of the United States and a majority of the directors and officers of the Corporation and some of the experts named in this Prospectus are residents of Canada and a majority of their assets are located outside of the United States. As a result, it may be difficult for United States investors to effect service of process within the United States upon those directors, officers or experts who are not residents of the United States, or to realize in the United States upon judgments of courts of the United States predicated upon civil liability of such directors, officers or experts under United States federal securities laws. There is substantial doubt whether an action could be brought in Canada in the first instance on the basis of liability predicated solely upon such laws.


CERTAIN AVAILABLE INFORMATION

        Kinross is subject to the informational reporting requirements of the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the " Exchange Act ") as the Common Shares are registered under Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act. Accordingly, the Corporation is required to publicly file reports and other information with the SEC. Under the MJDS, the Corporation is permitted to prepare such reports and other information in accordance with Canadian disclosure requirements, which are different from United States disclosure requirements. As a foreign private issuer, the Corporation is exempt from the rules under the Exchange Act prescribing the furnishing and content of proxy statements, and the Corporation's officers, directors and principal shareholders are exempt from the reporting and short-swing profit recovery provisions contained in Section 16 of the Exchange Act.

        Reports and other information concerning the Corporation can be inspected and copied at the public reference facilities maintained by the SEC at: 100 F. Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. 20549. Copies of these materials can be obtained from the Public Reference section of the SEC at 100 F Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. at prescribed rates. Please call the SEC at 1-800-SEC-0330 for further information on the public reference room. Certain of the Corporation's filings are also electronically available from the SEC's Electronic Document Gathering and Retrieval System (" EDGAR "), and which may be accessed at www.sec.gov.

        The Corporation has filed with the SEC a registration statement on Form F-10 under the Securities Act of 1933 with respect to the Securities. This Prospectus, including the documents incorporated by reference in this Prospectus, which forms a part of the registration statement, does not contain all of the information set forth in the registration statement, certain parts of which are contained in the exhibits to the registration statement as permitted by the rules and regulations of the SEC. For further information with respect to the Corporation and the Securities, reference is made to the registration statement and the exhibits thereto. The registration statement can be found on EDGAR at www.sec.gov.


CURRENCY PRESENTATION AND EXCHANGE RATE INFORMATION

        All references to "$" in this Prospectus are to United States dollars and all references to "Cdn$" are to Canadian dollars. On March 23, 2018, the Bank of Canada daily rate of exchange was US$1.00 = Cdn$1.2857 or Cdn$1.00 = US$0.7777.


NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

        The 2017 MD&A contains references to certain financial measures that are not defined under IFRS. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures such as Adjusted Net Earnings Attributable to Common Shareholders and Adjusted Net Earnings per Share, together with measures determined in accordance with IFRS, to provide investors with a supplemental measure to evaluate the underlying performance of the Corporation. Management also believes that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-GAAP financial measures in the evaluation of issuers. Management also uses non-GAAP financial measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, prepare annual operating budgets, and to assess its ability to meet future debt service, capital expenditure, and working capital requirements. Non-GAAP financial measures do not have standardized meanings and are unlikely to be comparable to any similar measures presented by other companies.

        A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures related to the Corporation can be found under the heading "Supplemental Information" in the 2017 MD&A.

KINROSS GOLD CORPORATION

        Kinross is principally engaged in the mining and processing of gold and, as a by-product, silver ore and the exploration for, and the acquisition of, gold bearing properties in the Americas, the Russian Federation, West Africa and worldwide. The principal products of Kinross are gold and silver produced in the form of doré that is shipped to refineries for final processing.

        Kinross' strategy is to increase shareholder value through increases in precious metal reserves, net asset value, production, long-term cash flow and earnings per share. Kinross' strategy also consists of optimizing the performance, and therefore, the value, of existing operations, investing in quality exploration and development projects and acquiring new potentially accretive properties and projects.

Recent Developments

        On February 14, 2018, the Corporation announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Kinross Brasil Mineraçao, agreed to acquire two hydro-electric power plants in Brazil from a subsidiary of Gerdau SA for $257 million. The two plants are expected to secure a long-term supply of power for Kinross' Paracatu mine, resulting in lower production costs over the life of mine.

        In August 2013, the Corporation received information regarding allegations of improper payments made to government officials and certain internal control deficiencies at its West Africa mining operations. External legal counsel was immediately retained to conduct an objective internal investigation into the allegations. In March and December 2014, and July 2015, Kinross received subpoenas from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the " SEC ") seeking information and documents on substantially the same subjects as had previously been raised. In December 2014, Kinross received similar requests for information from the United States Department of Justice. The US Department of Justice issued a declination letter in November 2017 that stated that the Department was closing its inquiry. On March 26, 2018, the SEC announced a resolution with the Corporation pursuant to which the SEC entered a cease and desist order enjoining the Corporation from violating the books and records and internal accounting controls provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act . As part of the settlement, the Corporation will pay a civil penalty of $950,000 and will report to the SEC on its anti-corruption compliance for a one-year period.

CONSOLIDATED CAPITALIZATION

        The applicable Prospectus Supplement will describe any material change, and the effect of such material change, on the share and loan capitalization of the Corporation that will result from the issuance of Securities pursuant to such Prospectus Supplement.

        There have been no material changes to the Corporation's share and loan capitalization on a consolidated basis since December 31, 2017.


PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

        The Corporation may offer and sell Securities directly to one or more purchasers, through agents, or through underwriters or dealers designated by the Corporation from time to time. The Corporation may distribute the Securities from time to time in one or more transactions at a fixed price or prices (which may be changed from time to time), at market prices prevailing at the times of sale, at prices related to prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices. A description of such pricing will be disclosed in the applicable Prospectus Supplement. The Corporation may offer Securities in the same offering, or it may offer Securities in separate offerings. A Prospectus Supplement will describe the terms of each specific offering of Securities, including (i) the terms of the Securities to which the Prospectus Supplement relates, including the type of Security being offered; (ii) the name or names of any agents, underwriters or dealers involved in such offering of Securities; (iii) the purchase price of the Securities offered thereby and the proceeds to, and the portion of expenses borne by, the Corporation from the sale of such Securities; (iv) any agents' commission, underwriting discounts and other items constituting compensation payable to agents, underwriters or dealers; and (v) any discounts or concessions allowed or re-allowed or paid to agents, underwriters or dealers.

        If underwriters are used in an offering, the Securities offered thereby will be acquired by the underwriters for their own account and may be resold from time to time in one or more transactions at a fixed public offering price or at varying prices determined at the time of sale. Securities may be either offered to the public through underwriting syndicates represented by managing underwriters or by underwriters without a syndicate. Only underwriters named in the Prospectus Supplement are deemed to be underwriters in connection with the Securities offered thereby. The obligations of the underwriters to purchase Securities will be subject to the conditions precedent agreed upon by the parties and outlined in the applicable Prospectus Supplement and the underwriters will be obligated to purchase all Securities under that offering if any are purchased. Any public offering price and any discounts or concessions allowed or re-allowed or paid to agents, underwriters or dealers may be changed from time to time.

        The Securities may also be sold: (i) directly by the Corporation at such prices and upon such terms as agreed to by the Corporation and the purchaser of such Securities; or (ii) through agents designated by the Corporation from time to time. Any agent involved in the offering and sale of the Securities in respect of which this Prospectus is delivered will be named, and any commissions payable by the Corporation to such agent will be set forth, in the Prospectus Supplement. Unless otherwise indicated in the Prospectus Supplement, any agent is acting on a "best efforts" basis for the period of its appointment.

        The Corporation may agree to pay the underwriters a commission for various services relating to the issue and sale of any Securities offered under any Prospectus Supplement. Agents, underwriters or dealers who participate in the distribution of the Securities may be entitled under agreements to be entered into with the Corporation to indemnification by the Corporation against certain liabilities, including liabilities under securities legislation, or to contribution with respect to payments which such underwriters, dealers or agents may be required to make in respect thereof.

        Agents, underwriters or dealers may make sales of Securities in privately negotiated transactions and/or any other method permitted by law, including sales deemed to be an "at-the-market" offering as defined in and subject to limitations imposed by and the terms of any regulatory approvals required and obtained under, applicable Canadian securities laws which includes sales made directly on an existing trading market for the Common Shares, or sales made to or through a market maker other than on an exchange. In connection with any offering of Securities, except with respect to "at-the-market" offerings, underwriters may over-allot or effect transactions which stabilize or maintain the market price of the offered Securities at a level above that which

7


Table of Contents

might otherwise prevail in the open market. Such transactions may be commenced, interrupted or discontinued at any time. No underwriter or dealer involved in an "at-the-market" offering, as defined under applicable Canadian securities laws, no affiliate of such an underwriter or dealer and no person or company acting jointly or in concert with such an underwriter or dealer will over-allot Securities in connection with such distribution or effect any other transactions that are intended to stabilize or maintain the market price of the Securities. In the event that the Corporation determines to pursue an "at-the-market" offering in Canada, the Corporation shall apply for the applicable exemptive relief from the Canadian securities commissions.

        The Corporation may authorize agents or underwriters to solicit offers by eligible institutions to purchase Securities from the Corporation at the public offering price set forth in the applicable Prospectus Supplement under delayed delivery contracts providing for payment and delivery on a specified date in the future. The conditions to these contracts and the commissions payable for solicitation of these contracts will be set forth in the applicable Prospectus Supplement.

        Each class or series of Securities, other than the Common Shares, will be a new issue of Securities with no established trading market. Subject to applicable laws, any underwriter may make a market in such Securities, but will not be obligated to do so and may discontinue any market making at any time without notice. There may be limited liquidity in the trading market for any such Securities.


USE OF PROCEEDS

        The net proceeds to the Corporation from any offering of Securities, the proposed use of those proceeds and the specific business objectives which the Corporation expects to accomplish with such proceeds will be set forth in the applicable Prospectus Supplement relating to that offering of Securities.

        There may be circumstances where, on the basis of results obtained or for other sound business reasons, a re-allocation of funds may be necessary or prudent. Accordingly, management of the Corporation will have broad discretion in the application of the proceeds of an offering of Securities. The actual amount that the Corporation spends in connection with each intended use of proceeds may vary significantly from the amounts specified in the applicable Prospectus Supplement and will depend on a number of factors, including those referred to under "Risk Factors" and any other factors set forth in the applicable Prospectus Supplement.

Additional risks and uncertainties of which the Corporation currently is unaware or that are unknown or that it currently deems to be immaterial could have a material adverse effect on the Corporation's business, financial condition and results of operation. The Corporation cannot assure you that it will successfully address any or all of these risks.

PURCHASERS' STATUTORY AND CONTRACTUAL RIGHTS OF WITHDRAWAL AND RESCISSION

        Securities legislation in certain of the provinces of Canada provides purchasers with the right to withdraw from an agreement to purchase securities. This right may be exercised within two business days after receipt or deemed receipt of a prospectus and any amendment. In several of the provinces of Canada, the securities legislation further provides a purchaser with remedies for rescission or, in some jurisdictions, revisions of the price or damages, if the prospectus and any amendment contains a misrepresentation or is not delivered to the purchaser, provided that the remedies for rescission, revisions of the price or damages are exercised by the purchaser within the time limit prescribed by the securities legislation of the purchaser's province. The purchaser

16


Table of Contents

should refer to any applicable provisions of the securities legislation of the purchaser's province for the particulars of these rights or consult with a legal adviser.

        In addition, original purchasers of Subscription Receipts, Warrants, Share Purchase Contracts or convertible or exchangeable Debt Securities (or Units comprised of any such Securities) will have a contractual right of rescission against the Corporation in respect of the conversion, exchange or exercise of a Subscription Receipt, Warrant, Share Purchase Contract or a convertible or exchangeable Debt Security. The contractual right of rescission will entitle such original purchasers to receive both the original amount paid for such Securities as well as the amount paid upon conversion, exchange or exercise, upon surrender of the underlying securities acquired thereby, in the event that this Prospectus (as supplemented or amended) contains a misrepresentation, provided that: (i) the conversion, exchange or exercise takes place within 180 days of the date of the purchase of the convertible, exchangeable or exercisable Security under this Prospectus; and (ii) the right of rescission is exercised within 180 days of the date of the purchase of the convertible, exchangeable or exercisable Security under this Prospectus.

        In an offering of Subscription Receipts, Warrants, Share Purchase Contracts or convertible or exchangeable Debt Securities (or Units comprised of any such Securities), investors are cautioned that the statutory right of action for damages for a misrepresentation contained in the Prospectus is limited, in certain provincial securities legislation, to the price at which Subscription Receipts, Warrants, Share Purchase Contracts or convertible or exchangeable Debt Securities (or Units comprised of any such Securities) are offered to the public under the prospectus offering. This means that, under the securities legislation of certain provinces, if the purchaser pays additional amounts upon the conversion, exchange or exercise of the security, those amounts may not be recoverable under the statutory right of action for damages that applies in those provinces. The purchaser should refer to any applicable provisions of the securities legislation of the purchaser's province for the particulars of this right of action for damages or consult with a legal adviser.

PART II

INFORMATION NOT REQUIRED TO BE DELIVERED TO OFFEREES OR PURCHASERS

Indemnification

        Section 136 of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the "Act") provides that a corporation may indemnify a director or officer of the corporation, a former director or officer of the corporation or a person who acts or acted at the corporation's request as a director or officer or an individual acting in a similar capacity, of another entity, (collectively, the "Indemnified Party"), against all costs, charges and expenses, including an amount paid to settle an action or satisfy a judgment, reasonably incurred by the Indemnified Party in respect of any civil, criminal, administrative, investigative or other proceeding (collectively, the "Action") in which the individual is involved because of that association with the corporation or other entity, if:

            (a)   he or she acted honestly and in good faith with a view to the best interests of the corporation (or, if applicable, in the best interest of the other entity for which he or she acted as director, officer or in a similar capacity at the corporation's request); and

            (b)   in the case of a criminal or administrative action or proceeding that is enforced by a monetary penalty, he or she had reasonable grounds for believing that his or her conduct was lawful.

        Section 136 of the Act also provides that a corporation may, with the approval of the court, indemnify an Indemnified Party in respect of an action by or on behalf of the corporation or other entity to obtain a judgment in its favor (a "Derivative Action"), to which the individual is made a party because of the individual's association with the corporation or other entity, against all costs, charges and expenses reasonably incurred by the individual in connection with such Derivative Action if the individual fulfills the condition set forth in clauses (a) of the paragraph above.

        The Act provides that an Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification from the corporation in respect of all costs, charges and expenses reasonably incurred by the individual in connection with the defense of such Action or Derivative Action to which the individual has been made party because of the individual's association with the corporation or such other entity; provided that the Indemnified Party (i) fulfills the conditions set out in the clause (a) and (b) above, and (ii) was not judged by a court or other competent authority to have committed any fault or to have omitted to do anything that such individual ought to have done.

        The Act also provides that a corporation may purchase and maintain insurance for the benefit of an Indemnified Party against liability incurred in the individual's capacity as a director or officer of the corporation, or as a director or officer, or a similar capacity, of another entity if the individual acts in that capacity at the corporation's request.

        The Bylaws of the Registrant provide that an Indemnified Party shall at all times be indemnified by the Registrant in every circumstance where the Act so permits or requires. The Bylaws further provide that, subject to limitations in the Act regarding indemnities in respect of Derivative Actions, every person who at any time is or has been a director or officer, or in a similar capacity, of the Registrant or properly incurs or has properly incurred any liability on behalf of the Registrant or who at any time acts or has acted at the Registrant's request (in respect of the Registrant or any other entity), and his or her heirs and legal representatives, shall at all times be indemnified by the Registrant against all costs, charges and expenses, including an amount paid to settle an action or satisfy a fine or judgment, reasonably incurred by him or her in respect of or in connection with any civil, criminal or administrative action, proceeding or investigation (apprehended, threatened, pending, under way or contemplated) to which he or she is or may be made a party or in which he or she is or may become otherwise involved by reason of being or having been such a director or officer or by

II-1


reason of so incurring or having so incurred such liability or by reason of so acting or having so acted (or by reason of anything alleged to have been done, omitted or acquiesced in by him or her in any such capacity or otherwise in respect of any of the foregoing), and has exhausted all appeals therefrom, if:

            (a)   he or she acted honestly and in good faith with a view to the best interest of the Registrant (or, if applicable, in the best interest of the other entity for which the individual acted as a director, officer or in a similar capacity at the Registrant's request); and

            (b)   in the case of a criminal or administrative action or proceeding that is enforced by a monetary penalty, he or she had reasonable grounds for believing his or her conduct was lawful.

        The Bylaws further provide that the above described indemnification provisions shall not affect any other right to indemnification to which any person may be or become entitled by contract or otherwise, and no settlement or plea of guilty in any action or proceeding shall alone constitute evidence that a person did not meet a condition set out in clause (a) or (b) above or any corresponding condition in the Act. The Bylaws also provide that the persons described above shall not be liable for any damage, loss, cost or liability sustained or incurred by the Registrant, except where so required by the Act, if such person acted honestly and in good faith with a view to the best interest of the Registrant (or of the entity for which the individual acted as a director, officer or in a similar capacity at the Registrant's request).

        The Registrant has a policy of insurance for its directors and officers and those of its subsidiaries. The limit of liability applicable to all insured directors and officers under the current policies, which will expire on May 1, 2018, is $125 million in the aggregate, inclusive of defense costs. Under the policies, the Registrant has reimbursement coverage to the extent that it has indemnified the directors and officers in excess of a deductible of $5 million for each loss for U.S. securities claims and $2.5 million for each other loss. The total premium charged to the Registrant in respect of coverage for 2017/2018 is $1,175,095, for 2016/2017 was $1,150,064 and for 2015/2016 was $1,118,403, no part of which is or was payable by the directors or officers of the Registrant.

        Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), may be permitted to directors, officers or persons controlling the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, the Registrant has been informed that in the opinion of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is therefore unenforceable.
