As we respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Emera is taking special actions to ensure Shareholders have options to participate in our 2020 annual meeting of shareholders while protecting the safety of Shareholders, our team and the community.

Emera is subject to the Nova Scotia Companies Act annual general meeting requirements, as well as directives under the Nova Scotia Health Protection Act and Emergency Management Act regarding social distancing and limits on the size of gatherings (currently limited to no more than five people).

To address public health concerns and these requirements, Emera will hold its 2020 annual meeting of shareholders with the aid of LUMI, a virtual meeting technology. Given the management participants and IT support required to run the meeting, if these restrictions remain in place, we will not be able to accommodate any other attendees in person.

Virtual Participation Requirements


Registered shareholders and duly appointed proxy holders may participate virtually in the Meeting using an internet connected device such as a laptop, computer, tablet or mobile phone. Simply log in to https://web.lumiagm.com/148086240 and enter your 13-digit Control Number as your username, using the password: emera2020 (case sensitive).

Please allow ample time before the start of the Meeting to complete the log-in process. Emera recommends logging in at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the Meeting.

In order to be able to vote, please ensure that you are connected to the internet at all times. If you are not connected, your vote may not be recorded.


In order to participate online or vote at the meeting, a beneficial or non-registered owner must first appoint themselves as proxyholder. Once they have done so, they must contact AST, Emera's registrar and transfer agent, before 5:00 p.m. (Atlantic Time) on June 3, 2020 to obtain a new Control Number to use to access the virtual meeting by calling:

1-866-751-6315 (within North America); or
1 (212) 235-5754 (outside of North America)

In order to appoint yourself as a proxyholder, follow the instructions in the form of proxy or voting instruction form sent to you by your intermediary. In most cases, you can simply insert your own name in the form of proxy or voting instruction form, sign it and return it in the envelope provided or you can make the appointment online. Do not complete the voting instructions, as you will be voting at the virtual meeting.

However, Objecting Beneficial Owners located in the United States instead may need to (i) send a request to their intermediary or its agent to send them a legal proxy appointing them as proxyholder and (ii) promptly following receipt of the legal proxy, submit the legal proxy to AST at 1 Toronto Street, Suite 1200, Toronto, Ontario M5C 2V6.

Once a beneficial or non-registered owner has been appointed a proxyholder and has received a Control Number from AST to access the virtual meeting, the beneficial owner should follow the instructions above to log in to the virtual meeting as a proxyholder.
