Toronto - Sentry Select Capital Corp. (“Sentry Select”) announced today that a meeting of the mutual fund shareholders of Sentry Select Canadian Resource Fund Ltd. (the “Corporation”) will be held on or about January 29, 2006 to consider approving changes to the Corporation.

To reflect the new multi-fund structure, the name of the Corporation will be changed to Sentry Select Corporate Class Ltd. and the name of the existing resource fund will be changed to Sentry Select Canadian Resource Class.
