Shareholder Information

Quarterly Dividend per share of $0.1375 (Q3 2018)

The declaration of a dividend reflects the confidence of Stantec’s board of directors and management in the Company’s ability to generate ongoing cash flow from operations, continue to grow revenue, and complete strategic acquisitions while providing enhanced shareholder returns. Dividends are expected to be paid quarterly, in Canadian dollars. The board of directors will consider several factors when reviewing dividend payments, including the Company’s present and future earnings, cash flows, and capital requirements, while complying with laws governing the Company. There can be no assurance as to the amount or timing of dividends in the future. The Board of Directors may review this policy from time to time.

On August 7, 2018, our board of directors declared a dividend of C$0.1375 per share, payable on October 11, 2018 to shareholders of record at the close of business on September 28, 2018. This dividend is designated as an “eligible” dividend under the Income Tax Act (Canada) and any corresponding provincial legislation.
