I received a Letter of Transmittal and Form W-8BEN (individuals) or W-8BEN-E (corporations/entities) in the mail. What is a Letter of Transmittal? What is a Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E? What should I do with them?

A Letter of Transmittal is the form that will be used by registered shareholders to exchange common shares of Encana Corporation for shares of common stock of Ovintiv Inc.

A Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E is a Certificate of Status of Beneficial Owner for United States Tax Withholding and Reporting. By completing the W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E (as appropriate), you are certifying that you are a foreign (i.e. a non-U.S. resident) shareholder receiving dividends from Ovintiv Inc. and you are certifying your country of residence for the purpose of claiming a reduced rate of withholding tax under the income tax treaty between your country of residence and the United States. Without a signed Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E dividends will be withheld at the maximum rate (currently 30%).

Please complete your Letter of Transmittal and the Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, if applicable, and send both documents and your Encana Corporation share certificates back to AST Trust Company (Canada) in the envelope that you were previously provided.

If you have any questions regarding the completion of the letter of transmittal or the relevant tax form, please contact the Depositary, AST Trust Company (Canada)866.580.7145
