return on investment, while helping build a stronger economy and a more
prosperous Ontario."

BACKGROUNDER
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

2008 ONTARIO SAVINGS BONDS

Over the years, the people of Ontario have come to know the Ontario
Savings Bonds (OSBs), as a safe and secure annual investment that is backed
100 per cent by the Province of Ontario. From June 2 to June 20, OSBs are
available from financial institutions, credit unions, caisses populaires or
investment dealers.
Compared with GICs and term deposits, OSBs offer competitive interest
rates and can be placed into a self-directed Registered Savings Plan.
Available in amounts from $100 to $500,000, OSBs are designed to appeal to all
types of investors. In addition, OSBs can be redeemed in as early as six
months.
OSBs have been on sale annually since 1995. Many Ontarians have chosen
this safe, flexible and competitive investment option that keeps their money
at home in the province where they live, work and raise their families. To
date, about $26 billion in OSBs have been sold.

TYPES OF BONDS

There are three OSB options available for investors to choose from:

- A three-year Fixed Rate Bond with the same rate until maturity
- A five-year Step-Up Bond with an interest rate that escalates every
year
- A seven-year Variable-Rate Bond with an interest rate that is re-set
every six months until maturity.

The Variable and Step-Up bonds can be redeemed every six months.
