TIMELY DISCLOSURE, CONFIDENTIALITY AND INSIDER TRADING POLICY
1. Purpose of this Policy
The purpose of this Policy is to ensure that Cargojet Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Corporation”) and all persons to whom this Policy applies meet their obligations under the provisions of securities laws and stock exchange rules by establishing a process for the timely disclosure of all Material Information (as defined herein), ensuring that all persons to whom this Policy applies understand their obligations to preserve the confidentiality of Undisclosed Material Information (as defined herein) and ensuring that all appropriate parties who have Undisclosed Material Information are prohibited from Insider Trading (as defined herein) and Tipping (as defined herein) under applicable law, stock exchange rules and this Policy. This Policy covers disclosures in documents filed with the securities regulators and written statements made in the Corporation’s annual and quarterly reports, news releases, letters to shareholders, presentations by senior management and information contained on the Corporation’s web site and other electronic communications. It extends to oral statements made in meetings and telephone conversations with analysts and investors, interviews with the media as well as speeches, press conferences and conference calls.
2. To Whom this Policy Applies
The main groups to whom this Policy apply are set forth in Schedule “A” attached hereto.

A copy of this Policy and any amendments thereto shall be circulated to and acknowledged by each person to whom this Policy applies on an annual basis.

|4.1||Only the individuals (“Spokespersons”) listed below are authorized to
communicate with analysts, the media and investors on behalf of the Corporation.
The list may be changed by the Disclosure Committee from time to time.
|4.2||A Spokesperson may, from time to time, designate in writing (1) other directors, officers, employees or contractors, or (2) with the approval of the Disclosure Committee, any other person, to speak on behalf of the Corporation as back-ups or to respond to specific inquiries.|
|4.3||Any person to whom this Policy applies who is approached by the media, an analyst, investor or any other member of the public to comment on the affairs of the Corporation, must refer all inquiries to the Chief Executive Officer, the Senior Vice President Sales and Service, or the Chief Financial Officer of Cargojet and must immediately notify the Chief Executive Officer, the Senior Vice President Sales and Service, or the Chief Financial Officer of the Corporation that the approach was made.|
5. Disclosure of Material Information
|5.1||“Material information” consists of both “material facts” and “material changes”. A “material fact” means a fact that significantly affects, or would reasonably be expected to have a significant effect on, the market price or value of the securities of the Corporation. A “material change” means a change in the business, operations or capital of the Corporation that would reasonably be expected to have a significant effect on the market price or value of any of the securities of the Corporation and includes a decision to implement such a change if such a decision is made by the board of directors or senior management of the Corporation who believe that confirmation of the decision by the board of directors is probable.|
|5.2||Any person to whom this Policy applies who becomes aware of information that has the possibility of being Material Information must immediately disclose that information to the Chief Executive Officer, the Senior Vice President Sales and Service, or the Chief Financial Officer of the Corporation. Schedule “B” attached hereto lists examples of Material Information.|
|5.3||Material Information is required to be disclosed immediately. The Disclosure Committee, in consultation with the Board of Directors of the Corporation and others as appropriate, shall determine what is deemed to be Material Information and the appropriate public disclosure. Disclosure must be corrected immediately if the Corporation subsequently learns that earlier disclosure by the Corporation contained a material error at the time it was given.|
|5.4||News releases disclosing Material Information will be transmitted by the Corporation forthwith to the Toronto Stock Exchange, relevant regulatory bodies and major news wire services that disseminate financial news to the financial press and to daily newspapers that provide regular coverage of financial news in the areas where the Corporation has operations.|
|5.5||In the event a material change occurs, the Corporation shall file a material change report as soon as practicable and in any event within ten days of the date on which the material change occurs.|
6. Internet Chat Rooms and Bulletin Boards
|6.1||Directors, Officers, Employees and Contractors must not discuss or post any information relating to the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries or trading in securities of the Corporation in Internet chat rooms, newsgroups or bulletin boards.|
|6.2||Directors, Officers, Employees and Contractors must advise the Chief Executive Officer, the Senior Vice President Sales and Service, or the Chief Financial Officer of the Corporation if they are aware of any discussion of information of the Corporation in a chat room, newsgroup or bulletin board.|
The Corporation shall not comment, affirmatively or negatively, on rumours. This also applies to rumours on the Internet. Spokespersons will respond consistently to those rumours, saying “It is our policy not to comment on market rumours or speculation.” If the Toronto Stock Exchange or a securities regulatory authority requests that the Corporation make a statement in response to a market rumour, the Disclosure Committee will consider the matter and make a recommendation to the Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation as to the nature and context of any response.
8. Confidentiality of Undisclosed Material Information
|8.1||“Undisclosed Material Information” of the Corporation is Material Information about the Corporation that has not been “Generally Disclosed”; that is, disseminated to the public by way of a news release together with the passage of a reasonable amount of time (24 hours, unless otherwise advised that the period is longer or shorter, depending on the circumstances) for the public to analyze the information|
|8.2||Any person to whom this Policy applies and who has knowledge of Undisclosed Material Information must treat the Material Information as confidential until the Material Information has been Generally Disclosed.|
|8.3||Undisclosed Material Information shall not be disclosed to anyone except in the necessary course of business. If Undisclosed Material Information has been disclosed in the necessary course of business, anyone so informed must clearly understand that it is to be kept confidential, and, in appropriate circumstances, execute a confidentiality agreement. Schedule “C” attached hereto lists certain circumstances where securities regulators believe disclosure may be in the necessary course of business. When in doubt, all persons to whom this Policy applies must consult with the Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation to determine whether disclosure in a particular circumstance is in the necessary course of business. For greater certainty, disclosure to analysts, institutional investors, other market professionals and members of the press and other media will not be considered to be in the necessary course of business. “Tipping”, which refers to the disclosure of Undisclosed Material Information to third parties outside the necessary course of business, is prohibited.|
|8.4||In order to prevent the misuse or inadvertent disclosure of Undisclosed Material
Information, the procedures set forth below should be observed at all times:
9. Quiet Period
|9.1||Each period (1) beginning on the last day of each fiscal quarter and each fiscal year, and (2) ending when the earnings for that quarter or year have been Generally Disclosed by way of a news release, will be a “Quiet Period”. During a Quiet Period, Spokespersons must not provide any future-oriented information relating to the business and affairs of the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries. Spokespersons are also prohibited from providing any future oriented information about the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries’ prospective business, operations or capital, including future-oriented financial information (as that term is defined under applicable securities law) (“Forward-Looking Information”) about expected revenues, net income or profit, earnings per share, expenditure levels, and other information commonly referred to as earnings guidance (“Earnings Guidance”) or comments with respect to the financial results for the current fiscal quarter or current fiscal year. Notwithstanding these restrictions, the Corporation may Generally Disclose Forward-Looking Information during the Quiet Period when the Forward-Looking Information constitutes Undisclosed Material Information. During a quiet period, Spokespersons may respond to unsolicited inquiries about information either that is not Material Information or that has been Generally Disclosed.|
10. Avoiding Selective Disclosure
|10.1||When participating in shareholder meetings, news conferences, analysts’ conferences and private meetings with analysts, Spokespersons must only disclose information that either (1) is not Material Information or (2) is Material Information but has previously been Generally Disclosed. For greater certainty, acceptable topics of discussion include the Corporation’s business prospects (subject to the provisions of Section 11 of this Policy), the business environment, management’s philosophy and long-term strategy. Any selective disclosure of Undisclosed Material Information, including Earnings Guidance, is not permitted.|
|10.2||To protect against selective disclosure, the following procedures should be
|10.3||After each shareholder meeting, news conference, analysts’ conference or private meeting with analysts, the Corporation’s participants should normally meet and review the disclosures made during the course of the meeting or conference to determine if any Undisclosed Material Information was unintentionally disclosed.|
|10.4||If Undisclosed Material Information was disclosed, the participants must advise a member of the Disclosure Committee, who shall take immediate steps to ensure that the information is Generally Disclosed.|
|10.5||Pending the Material Information being Generally Disclosed, the Corporation must contact the parties to whom the Material Information was disclosed and inform them (1) that the information is Undisclosed Material Information and (2) of their legal obligations with respect to the Material Information.|
11. Forward-Looking Information
|11.1||When reviewing analysts’ reports in accordance with the procedure set out below, comments of Directors, Officers, Employees and Contractors must be limited to identifying factual information that has been Generally Disclosed that may affect an analyst’s model and pointing out inaccuracies or omissions with respect to information that has been Generally Disclosed. Any comments must contain a disclaimer that the report was reviewed for factual accuracy only. No comfort or guidance shall be expressed on the analysts’ earnings models or earnings estimates and no attempt shall be made to influence an analyst’s opinion or conclusion.|
|11.2||Analysts’ reports must not be circulated by Directors, Officers, Employees and Contractors except when in the necessary course of business, nor shall they be posted on, nor linked from the Corporation’s website.|
|11.3||The Corporation may from time to time give Earnings Guidance or any other Forward-Looking Information through voluntary disclosure by way of a news release, provided that the cautionary language described in Section 11.4 accompanies the information.|
|11.4||If Forward-Looking Information is Generally Disclosed:
12. Trading of Securities of the Corporation
|12.1||“Insider Trading” which refers to Persons in a Special Relationship with the Corporation purchasing or selling or otherwise monetizing securities of the Corporation while in possession of Undisclosed Material Information, is prohibited.|
|12.2||In addition to Section 12.1, Directors, Officers, Employees and Contractors shall
not purchase or sell or otherwise monetize securities of the Corporation except
during a “Trading Window”, provided there is no “Blackout Period” in effect.
Prior to purchasing, selling or otherwise monetizing securities of the Corporation during a Trading Window when there is no Blackout Period in effect, Board Members and Senior Officers shall provide written notice to the Chief Financial Officer of their intent to purchase, sell or monetize securities of the Corporation, and such notification shall include, but not be limited to, the amount of securities of the Corporation that the Board Member or Senior Officer intends to purchase, sell or otherwise monetize.
“Trading Window” means: (1) the period of time beginning on the third day on which the Toronto Stock Exchange is open for trading and on which the trading in the Corporation’s securities is not halted or suspended (a “Trading Day”) after the financial results for a fiscal quarter or fiscal year have been disclosed by way of a news release and ending on the last day of the next quarter; and (2) any other period designated by the Disclosure Committee and communicated to those persons to whom this Policy applies.

|12.3||Notwithstanding Section 12.2, a Director, Officer, Employee and Contractor may purchase or sell securities during a Blackout Period with the prior written consent of the Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation. The Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation will grant permission to purchase or sell during a Blackout Period only in the case of unusual, exceptional circumstances. Unusual, exceptional circumstances may include the sale of securities in the case of severe financial hardship or where the timing of the sale is critical for significant tax planning purposes.|
|12.4||The trading prohibitions in Section 12 do not apply to the acquisition of securities through the exercise of stock based compensation, if any, but do apply to the grant of stock based compensation, if any, and the sale of the securities acquired through the exercise of stock based compensation, if any.|
13. Insider Trade Reports
|13.1||An Insider of the Corporation is required to file an initial insider report within five (5) days of becoming an Insider and subsequent insider reports within five (5) days following any trade of securities of the Corporation or such other period as may be prescribed by statute. If an Insider of the Corporation does not own or have control over or direction over securities of the Corporation, or if ownership or direction or control over securities of the Corporation remains unchanged from the last report filed, a report is not required.|
|13.2||If an Insider has made a trade and requires assistance with the filing of an insider report, such Insider should contact the Chief Financial Officer of the Corporation who will arrange for assistance with the preparation and filing of an insider report.|
Non-compliance with these policies is a serious breach of the terms and conditions of engagement and will be dealt with accordingly.
