(Subsection 4(b) of the Regulation)

UPON the application of Waverley Resources Ltd. (the Applicant) to the Ontario Securities Commission (the Commission) requesting the Commission’s consent to the Applicant continuing in another jurisdiction pursuant to section 181 of the OBCA (the Continuance);

AND UPON considering the application and the recommendation of staff of the Commission;

AND UPON the Applicant having represented to the Commission that:

  1. The Applicant is an offering corporation under the OBCA.
  2. The Applicant’s common shares (the Common Shares) are not listed or posted for trading on any securities exchange.

  5. The principal reason for the Application for Continuance is that certain aspects of the Applicant’s business and affairs will be better facilitated by the BCBCA and the provisions of the BCBCA provide more flexibility to the Applicant in respect of financing opportunities and other corporate transactions which may be effected by the Applicant in the future. Additionally, two of the Applicant’s four directors are residents of British Columbia.
  6. The material rights, duties and obligations of a corporation governed by the BCBCA are substantially similar to those of a corporation governed by the OBCA.
  7. The Applicant is a reporting issuer under the Securities Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. S.5, as amended (the Act), the Securities Act (British Columbia), R.S.B.C. 1996, c.418 (the BCSA), and the Securities Act (Alberta), R.S.A. 2000, c. S-4 (the ASA, and together with the Act and the BCSA, the Legislation) and will remain a reporting issuer in these jurisdictions following the Continuance.
  8. The Applicant is not in default of any of the provisions of the OBCA or the Legislation, including the regulations made thereunder.

  12. The Applicant’s management information circular dated November 20, 2020 for its annual general and special meeting of shareholders, held on December 21, 2020 (the “Shareholders’ Meeting”) described the proposed Continuance and disclosed the reasons for it and its implications. It also disclosed full particulars of the dissent rights of the Applicant’s shareholders under section 185 of the OBCA.
  13. The Applicant’s shareholders authorized the Continuance at the Shareholders’ Meeting by special resolution that was approved by 100% of the votes cast and no shareholder exercised dissent rights pursuant to section 185 of the OBCA.
  14. Subsection 4(b) of the Regulation requires the Application for Continuance to be accompanied by a consent from the Commission.

AND UPON the Commission being satisfied that to do so would not be prejudicial to the public interest;

THE COMMISSION HEREBY CONSENTS to the Continuance of the Applicant as a corporation under the BCBCA.
