/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE U.S. OR OVER U.S. NEWSWIRES/

TORONTO, Oct. 17, 2016 /CNW/ – True North Commercial Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX: TNT.UN) (the “REIT“) today announced a cash distribution of $0.0495 per trust unit (“Unit“) for the period from October 1, 2016 and ending October 31, 2016. The distribution will be payable on November 15, 2016 to unitholders of record as at October 31, 2016.

Unitholders can participate in the REIT’s unitholder Distribution Reinvestment Plan (“DRIP“). Eligible investors registered in the DRIP will have their monthly cash distributions used to purchase additional Units, at a 3% discount to the weighted average closing price of the Units, for the five trading days immediately preceding the date of distribution declared by the REIT. No assurances can be made that new Units will be made available under the DRIP on a regular basis, or at all. The DRIP provides an efficient and cost-effective way for the REIT to issue additional equity to existing unitholders.
