Eligible Dividends for Canadian Tax Purposes

1099-DIV (or the Canadian Equivalent NR-4) Information for Shareholders Filing a U.S. Income Tax Return

Encana expects that its dividends will constitute "qualified dividend income" for non-corporate U.S. holders, including individual U.S. holders, taxable at the lower applicable capital gains rate, provided that certain holding period requirements are met. For more information, please visit http://www.irs.gov or contact an accountant or professional tax advisor.

Declarations of Dividends

Any decision to declare and pay a dividend will be determined at the discretion of Encana's Board of Directors after giving consideration to a number of factors including, but not limited to, company earnings, the financial requirements of the company's operations and the satisfaction by the company of liquidity and solvency tests prescribed by law.
