3

already lowered their ratings on the Notes as aforesaid, would aggregate in number the Required Threshold, but only to the extent that, and for so long as, a Change of Control Triggering Event would result if such downgrade were to occur) after the earlier of (i) the occurrence of a Change of Control, and (ii) public notice of the occurrence of a Change of Control or of the Issuer’s intention or agreement to effect a Change of Control.

1.03

Interpretation Provisions in Indenture
This Series Supplement shall, unless the context otherwise requires, be subject to the interpretation provisions contained in Article One of the Indenture.
1.05
Exhibits
Exhibit A to this Series Supplement forms part of this Series Supplement.
ARTICLE TWO
DEBT SECURITIES
2.01
Creation and Designation
The Issuer is hereby authorized to issue under the Indenture a Series of Debt Securities designated “2.05% Notes, Series CAD due October 7, 2030” (the “Notes”) having the terms set forth in this Article Two.
2.02
Limitation on Aggregate Principal Amount
The aggregate principal amount of the Notes that may be issued (except for Notes issued upon registration of transfer of, or in exchange for, or in lieu of, other Notes) shall be initially limited to $500,000,000. The Issuer may, from time to time, without the consent of any existing Holders of the Notes, create and issue additional Notes hereunder in such additional amounts as the Issuer may determine having the same terms and conditions as the Notes in all respects, except for such variations
4

to such terms and conditions as may be required, in the reasonable and good faith opinion of the Issuer, to reflect the different issue dates of such additional Notes and the then existing Notes and the intention that all such additional Notes and then existing Notes be fungible for trading purposes from the issue date of such additional Notes (which variations may include, among other things, a different issue date, a different issue price, a different interest commencement date, a different first interest payment date, a different initial interest period, and a different interest payment calculation for the initial interest period). Additional Notes so created and issued will be consolidated with and form a single Series with the then existing Notes and, if the Issuer acting reasonably and in good faith determines that it is advisable or advantageous to do so, the Issuer may accept such additional Notes and then existing Notes (including any such Notes in global form held by a Depositary) in exchange for consolidated and restated replacement Notes reflecting the terms and conditions of such additional Notes and then existing Notes.
2.03
Currency
The Notes shall be denominated in, and all principal of, and premium, interest and other amounts on the Notes shall be payable in, Canadian Dollars. Unless expressly provided to the contrary in this Series Supplement, all amounts expressed in this Series Supplement and in each Note in terms of money refer to Canadian Dollars.
2.04
Denominations
The Notes shall be denominated in integral multiples of $1,000.
2.05
Date and Stated Maturity
The Series Issuance Date for the Notes shall be October 5, 2020 and the entire principal amount of the Notes shall become due and payable, together with any accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes, on October 7, 2030 (such date being the “Stated Maturity” of the outstanding principal amount of the Notes).
2.06
Interest
(1)
Interest shall accrue on the aggregate unpaid principal amount of each Note, together, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, with interest on overdue interest not paid on an Interest Payment Date for the Notes, as well after as before default and judgment, from and including the date such Note is issued to but not including the date of the repayment in full of the principal amount of such Note, at a rate of interest equal to 2.05% per annum. Interest that accrues on a Note for the period from and including the date such Note is issued to but not including April 7, 2021, shall be payable on the first Interest Payment Date (namely, April 7, 2021). Interest on a Note that accrues from and including April 7, 2021, subject to any variation to the terms and conditions of the initial interest payment under any additional Notes, shall be payable in equal semi-annual instalments on each Interest Payment Date for the Notes and all accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes shall be paid on the Maturity of the Notes. For greater certainty, interest on the Notes will accrue and be calculated for each applicable period prior to an Interest Payment Date, and will be paid on each related Interest Payment Date, in the manner necessary to result in (i) the per annum rate of interest during each year of the term of the Notes being equal to the fixed rate per annum specified above, (ii) interest under the Notes that accrues for the period from and including October 5, 2020, to but not including April 7, 2021 being paid under the Notes on the first Interest Payment Date (namely, April 7, 2021) and payable in an aggregate amount equal to $5,181,164.38, and (iii) interest under the Notes that accrues from and including April 7, 2021, subject to any variation to the terms and conditions of the initial interest payment under any additional Notes, being paid under the Notes in equal semi-annual instalments on the related semi-annual Interest Payment Dates.
(2)
Interest on the Notes will be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days.
5

(3)
The Interest Payment Dates for the Notes shall be April 7 and October 7 in each year beginning April 7, 2021.

(4)
The Regular Interest Record Dates for the Notes shall be March 23 (with respect to the April 7 Interest Payment Date) and September 22 (with respect to the October 7 Interest Payment Date) in each year.
2.07
Additional Amounts
(1)
All payments made by the Issuer under or with respect to the Notes will be made free and clear of and without withholding or deduction for or on account of any present or future tax, duty, levy, impost, assessment or other governmental charge imposed or levied by or on behalf of the Government of Canada or of any province or territory thereof or therein or by any authority or agency thereof or therein having power to tax (hereinafter “Taxes”) unless the Issuer is required to withhold or deduct Taxes by Applicable Law or by the interpretation or administration thereof by the relevant Governmental Authority. If the Issuer is so required to withhold or deduct any amount for or on account of Taxes from any payment made under or with respect to the Notes, the Issuer will pay such additional amounts (“Additional Amounts”) as may be necessary so that the net amount received by each holder or beneficial owner (including Additional Amounts) after such withholding or deduction will not be less than the amount such holder or beneficial owner would have received if such Taxes had not been withheld or deducted; provided that no Additional Amounts will be payable with respect to:

(a)
any payment to a holder or beneficial owner who is liable for such Taxes in respect of such Note (i) by reason of such holder or beneficial owner being a Person with whom the Issuer is not dealing at arm’s length for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) or (ii) by reason of the existence of any present or former connection between such holder or beneficial owner (or between a fiduciary, settlor, beneficiary, member or shareholder of, or possessor of power over, such holder or beneficial owner, if such holder or beneficial owner is an estate, trust, partnership, limited liability company or corporation) and Canada or any province or territory thereof or therein or agency thereof or therein other than the mere acquisition, holding, use or ownership or deemed holding, use or ownership, or receiving payments or enforcing any rights in respect of such Note as a non-resident or deemed non-resident of Canada or any province or territory thereof or therein or any agency thereof or therein; or

(b)
any payment to a holder or beneficial owner who is a “specified shareholder” of the Issuer or who does not deal at arm's length with a “specified shareholder” of the Issuer as defined in subsection 18(5) of the Income Tax Act (Canada); or

(c)
any Note presented for payment more than 30 days after the later of (i) the date on which such payment first becomes due or (ii) if the full amount of the monies payable has not been paid to the Holders of the Notes on or prior to such date, the date on which the full amount of such monies has been paid to the Holders of the Notes, except to the extent that the Holder of the Notes would have been entitled to such Additional Amounts on presentation of the same for payment on the last day of such period of 30 days; or

(d)
any estate, inheritance, gift, sales, transfer, excise or personal property tax or any similar Tax; or

(e)
any Tax imposed as a result of the failure of a holder or beneficial owner of a Note to comply with certification, identification, declaration or similar reporting requirements concerning the nationality, residence, identity or connection with Canada or any province or territory thereof or therein or agency thereof or therein of such holder or beneficial owner, if such compliance is required by statute or by regulation, as a precondition to reduction of, or exemption, from such Tax; or
6

 
(f)
any Tax which is payable otherwise than by withholding or deduction from any payment made under or with respect to the Notes; or


(g)
any combination of the above items;
nor will such Additional Amounts be paid with respect to any payment on any Note to a holder or beneficial owner who is a fiduciary or partnership or other than the sole beneficial owner of such Note to the extent that a beneficiary or settlor with respect to such fiduciary, or a member of such partnership or a beneficial owner thereof would not have been entitled to receive a payment of such Additional Amounts had such beneficiary, settlor, member or beneficial owner received directly its beneficial or distributive share of such payment.
(2)
Where Tax is payable pursuant to Section 803 of the Income Tax Regulations by a Holder of the Notes or beneficial owner of the Notes in respect of any amount payable under the Notes to the Holder of the Notes (other than by reason of a transfer of the Notes to a person resident in Canada with whom the transferor does not deal at arm’s length for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada)), but no Additional Amount is paid in respect of such Tax, the Issuer will pay to the Holder of the Notes an amount equal to such Tax within 45 days after receiving from the Holder of the Notes a notice containing reasonable particulars of the Tax so payable, provided such Holder of the Notes or beneficial owner would have been entitled to receive Additional Amounts on account of such Tax but for the fact that it is payable otherwise than by deduction or withholding from payments made under or with respect to the Notes.
(3)
At least 30 days prior to each date on which any payment under or with respect to the Notes is due and payable, if the Issuer to its knowledge will be obligated to pay Additional Amounts with respect to such payment, the Issuer will deliver to the Indenture Trustee a Certificate of the Issuer stating the fact that such Additional Amounts will be payable and the amounts so payable and will set forth such other information necessary to enable the Indenture Trustee to pay such Additional Amounts to Holders of the Notes on the payment date.
(4)
Whenever in the Indenture, this Series Supplement or in any Note there is mentioned, in any context, the payment of principal of, or premium, interest or any other amount on any Note, such mention shall be deemed to include mention of the payment of Additional Amounts to the extent that, in such context, Additional Amounts are, were or would be payable in respect thereof. For greater certainty, a default in making any payment of any Additional Amounts when due which default continues for a period of 30 days shall constitute an Event of Default for the purposes of Section 6.01(b) of the Indenture but not for the purpose of Section 6.01(a) of the Indenture.
(5)
The obligation to pay Additional Amounts will survive any termination or discharge of the Indenture or the redemption, repayment or purchase of the Notes.
2.08
Redemption and Purchase
(1)
The Notes may be redeemed, in whole or in part at any time and from time to time prior to July 7, 2030 at the election of the Issuer, for a Redemption Price equal to the greater of (a) the Discounted Value for the applicable Redemption Date of the Notes to be redeemed, and (b) the outstanding principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed. The Notes may be redeemed, in whole, or from time to time, in part, at any time on or after July 7, 2030 at the election of the Issuer, for a Redemption Price equal to the outstanding principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed.

3.02
Additional Negative Covenants
The Issuer covenants and agrees with the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Holders of the Notes that, so long as the Notes are Outstanding and except as otherwise permitted by the prior written consent of the Indenture Trustee:

(a)
Negative Pledge. The Issuer shall not, and shall not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, directly or indirectly, create or assume any Lien (other than Permitted Liens) upon any of the present or future Principal Property, or any Property which, together with any other Property subject to Liens (other than Permitted Liens) in the same transaction or series of related transactions, would in the aggregate constitute a Principal Property, of the Issuer or a Restricted Subsidiary to secure Indebtedness of the Issuer or a Restricted Subsidiary unless the Notes (together with, if the Issuer shall so determine, any other indebtedness of the Issuer or a Restricted Subsidiary ranking at least pari passu with the Notes then existing or thereafter created) shall be concurrently secured equally and rateably with (or prior to) such Indebtedness so long as such Lien is outstanding. If at any time the Issuer or any Restricted Subsidiary shall create or assume any Lien to which this subsection is applicable, the Issuer shall promptly deliver to the Indenture Trustee a Certificate of the Issuer stating that its covenant in this subsection has been complied with. If the Issuer shall hereafter secure the Notes equally and rateably with (or prior to) any such other Indebtedness pursuant to this subsection, the Indenture Trustee is hereby authorized to enter into an indenture or agreement supplemental to the Indenture and this Series Supplement and to take such action, if any, as it may deem advisable to enable the Indenture Trustee to effectively enforce the rights of the Holders of the Notes so secured equally and rateably with (or prior to) the obligees of such Indebtedness; provided however that the Indenture Trustee shall not be responsible for filing any financing or continuation statements or recording any documents or instruments in any public office at any time or times.

(b)
Sale and Lease-Back Transactions. The Issuer shall not, and shall not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, enter into any Sale and Lease-Back Transaction, except for:

any Sale and Lease-Back Transaction constituting a Permitted Lien under any of clauses (a) to (t) inclusive, and any of clauses (v) to (cc) inclusive, of the definition of Permitted Liens; or

(ii)
any Sale and Lease-Back Transaction that is not otherwise permitted under paragraphs (i) or (iii) of this subsection and in respect of which the Issuer or such Restricted Subsidiary would, at the time it enters into such Sale and Lease-Back Transaction, be entitled to create a Lien on the Principal Property (or the properties, as the case may be) subject to such Sale and Lease-Back Transaction to secure Indebtedness at least equal in amount to the Attributable Debt in respect of such Sale and Lease-Back Transaction without being required to equally and rateably secure the Notes pursuant to subsection (a) of this Section (any Sale and Lease-Back Transaction entered into in compliance with this paragraph being an “Unrestricted Sale and Lease-Back Transaction”); or

(iii)
any Sale and Lease-Back Transaction if the Issuer or such Restricted Subsidiary shall apply or cause to be applied, in the case of a sale or transfer for cash, an amount equal to the greater of the fair market value of the Principal Property (or the properties, as the case may be) sold or transferred and leased back pursuant to such Sale and Lease-Back Transaction or the net proceeds of such Sale and Lease-Back Transaction and, in the case of a sale or transfer otherwise than for cash, an amount equal to the fair market value of the Principal Property (or the properties, as the case may be) sold or transferred and leased back pursuant to such Sale and Lease-Back Transaction, to (x) the retirement (other than any mandatory retirement), within 180 days after the effective date of such Sale and Lease-Back Transaction, of Indebtedness of the Issuer (which may but need not include the Debt Securities of any Series) ranking on a parity with, or prior to, the Notes and owing to a Person other than the Issuer or any Affiliate of the Issuer, or (y) the purchase, construction or improvement of real property or personal property used by the Issuer or the Restricted Subsidiaries in the ordinary course of business.

(c)
Restricted Subsidiary Indebtedness. The Issuer shall not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, directly or indirectly, create, incur or assume any Restricted Indebtedness, unless after giving effect to the incurrence of such Restricted Indebtedness and the application of the proceeds therefrom, the sum of (without duplication) (x) the aggregate principal amount of Restricted Indebtedness of all Restricted Subsidiaries at such time, plus (y) the then outstanding principal amount of Indebtedness of the Issuer at such time secured by Liens (other than any Lien constituting a Permitted Lien under any of clauses (a) to (cc) inclusive of the definition of Permitted Liens), plus (z) Attributable Debt relating to then outstanding Unrestricted Sale and Lease-Back Transactions of the Issuer, would not exceed 15% of Consolidated Net Tangible Assets.

(5)
The Issuer will not be required to make a Change of Control Offer upon a Change of Control Triggering Event if a third party makes such an offer substantially in the manner, at the times and in compliance with the requirements for an offer made by the Issuer pursuant to the provisions of this Section 5.01 (and for at least the same purchase price payable in cash) and such third party purchases all Notes properly tendered and not withdrawn under its offer.

2.05% Notes, Series CAD due October 7, 2030
TELUS Corporation (the “Issuer”) for value received hereby acknowledges itself indebted and promises to pay to the Holder hereof on presentation and surrender of this 2.05% Note, Series CAD (the “Note”) at the principal office of Computershare Trust Company of Canada (the “Indenture Trustee”, which term shall include its successors under the Indenture hereinafter referred to) in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the principal amount of [●] dollars in lawful money of Canada ($[●]), and to pay interest on the outstanding principal amount hereof at the same place in like money at the rate of 2.05% per annum, as well after as before maturity, default and judgment, with interest on overdue interest at the same rate as more particularly specified in the Indenture.
The outstanding principal amount of this Note is payable in one instalment on October 7, 2030. Interest on this Note that accrues for the period from and including October 5, 2020 to but not including April 7, 2021, is payable on the first Interest Payment Date (namely, April 7, 2021) in an aggregate amount equal to $[●]. Interest on this Note that accrues from and including April 7, 2021 is payable in equal semi-annual instalments on April 7 and October 7 of each year beginning October 7, 2021. All accrued and unpaid interest on this Note is payable on the Maturity of this Note.
All payments made by the Issuer under or with respect to this Note will be made free and clear of and without withholding or deduction for or on account of any present or future tax, duty, levy, impost, assessment or other governmental charge imposed or levied by or on behalf of the Government of Canada or of any province or territory thereof or therein or by any authority or agency thereof or therein having power to tax (hereinafter “Taxes”) unless the Issuer is required to withhold or deduct Taxes by Applicable Law or by the interpretation or administration thereof by the relevant Governmental Authority. If the Issuer is so required to withhold or deduct any amount for or on account of Taxes from any payment made under or with respect to the Notes, the Issuer will pay such additional amounts (“Additional Amounts”) as may be necessary so that the net amount received by each holder or beneficial owner (including Additional Amounts) after such withholding or deduction will not be less than the amount such holder or beneficial owner would have received if such Taxes had not been withheld or deducted; provided that no Additional Amounts will be payable with respect to:
(a)
any payment to a holder or beneficial owner who is liable for such Taxes in respect of such Note (i) by reason of such holder or beneficial owner being a Person with whom the Issuer is not dealing at arm’s length for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) or (ii) by reason of the existence of any present or former connection between such holder or beneficial owner (or between a fiduciary, settlor, beneficiary, member or shareholder of, or possessor of power over, such holder or beneficial owner, if such holder or beneficial owner is an estate, trust, partnership, limited liability company or corporation) and Canada or any province or territory thereof or therein or agency thereof or therein other than the mere acquisition, holding, use or ownership or deemed holding, use or ownership, or receiving payments or enforcing any rights in respect of this Note as a nonresident or deemed non-resident of Canada or any province or territory thereof or therein or any agency thereof or therein; or
(b)
any payment to a holder or beneficial owner who is a “specified shareholder” of the Issuer or who does not deal at arm's length with a “specified shareholder” of the Issuer as defined in subsection 18(5) of the Income Tax Act (Canada); or
A-1

(c)
this Note if presented for payment more than 30 days after the later of (i) the date on which such payment first becomes due or (ii) if the full amount of the monies payable has not been paid to the Holder of this Note on or prior to such date, the date on which the full amount of such monies has been paid to the Holder of this Note, except to the extent that the Holder of this Note would have been entitled to such Additional Amounts on presentation of the same for payment on the last day of such period of 30 days; or
(d)
any estate, inheritance, gift, sales, transfer, excise or personal property tax or any similar Tax; or
(e)
any Tax imposed as a result of the failure of a holder or beneficial owner of this Note to comply with certification, identification, declaration or similar reporting requirements concerning the nationality, residence, identity or connection with Canada or any province or territory thereof or therein or agency thereof or therein of such holder or beneficial owner of this Note, if such compliance is required by statute or by regulation, as a precondition to reduction of, or exemption, from such Tax; or
(f)
any Tax which is payable otherwise than by withholding or deduction from any payment made under or with respect to this Notes; or
(g)
any combination of the above items;
nor will such Additional Amounts be paid with respect to any payment on this Note to a holder or beneficial owner who is a fiduciary or partnership or other than the sole beneficial owner of this Note to the extent that a beneficiary or settlor with respect to such fiduciary, or a member of such partnership or a beneficial owner thereof would not have been entitled to receive a payment of such Additional Amounts had such beneficiary, settlor, member or beneficial owner received directly its beneficial or distributive share of such payment.
Where Tax is payable pursuant to Section 803 of the Income Tax Regulations by a Holder of the Notes or beneficial owner of the Notes in respect of any amount payable under the Notes to the Holder of the Notes (other than by reason of a transfer of the Notes to a person resident in Canada with whom the transferor does not deal at arm’s length for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada)), but no Additional Amount is paid in respect of such Tax, the Issuer will pay to the Holder of the Notes an amount equal to such Tax within 45 days after receiving from the Holder of the Notes a notice containing reasonable particulars of the Tax so payable, provided such Holder of the Notes or beneficial owner would have been entitled to receive Additional Amounts on account of such Tax but for the fact that it is payable otherwise than by deduction or withholding from payments made under or with respect to the Notes.
This Note is one of a duly authorized Series of Debt Securities designated as 2.05% Notes, Series CAD due October 7, 2030 issued under a trust indenture dated as of May 22, 2001 (the “Trust Indenture”) and a Thirty-Sixth Series Supplement (the “Series Supplement”) dated as of October 5, 2020 (the Series Supplement and, together with the Trust Indenture, and as further amended, the “Indenture”), in each case between the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee. Reference is hereby made to the Indenture as to the nature and extent of the rights of the Holders of the Debt Securities of this Series, all to the same effect as if the provisions of the Indenture were herein set forth, to all of which provisions the Holder of this Note by acceptance hereof assents. All capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meanings specified in the Indenture.
Each Debt Security of this Series, including this Note, may be redeemed by the Issuer in whole or in part at any time prior to July 7, 2030 upon not less than 30 days’ and not more than 60 days’ notice to the Holder hereof, in accordance with Section 3.01 of the Trust Indenture, at a Redemption Price equal to the greater of (a) the Discounted Value of this Note for the applicable Redemption Date, and (b) the outstanding principal amount of this Note, together in each case with all accrued and unpaid interest hereon to the Redemption Date. All Debt Securities of this Series, including this Note, may be redeemed by the Issuer in whole, or from time to time, in part, at any time on or after July 7, 2030 upon not less than
A-2

30 days’ and not more than 60 days’ notice to the Holder hereof, in accordance with Section 3.01 of the Trust Indenture, at a Redemption Price equal to the outstanding principal amount of this Note together with all accrued and unpaid interest hereon to the Redemption Date. Any redemption may, at the Issuer's discretion, be subject to one or more conditions, and may be revoked if any such conditions are not satisfied.
For the purpose of the preceding paragraph, “Discounted Value” shall mean, for this Note and any applicable Redemption Date, an amount equal to the sum of the present values of all remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest (not including any portion of the payment of interest accrued as of such Redemption Date) from such Redemption Date to the respective due dates for such payments until July 7, 2030 computed on a semi-annual basis by discounting such payments (assuming a 365 day year) to the Redemption Date at the Government of Canada Yield plus 38 basis points, and “Government of Canada Yield” shall mean, with respect to this Note and any applicable Redemption Date, the mid-market yield to maturity on the third Business Day (the “Determination Date”) preceding such Redemption Date, compounded semi-annually, which a non-callable Government of Canada bond would carry if issued, in Canadian Dollars in Canada, at 100% of its principal amount on such date with a term to maturity which most closely approximates the remaining term to July 7, 2030 from such Redemption Date as quoted by a dealer selected from time to time by the Issuer and approved by the Indenture Trustee at noon (Toronto time) on such Determination Date. In the case of any redemption of less than all of the Debt Securities of this Series, the Debt Securities to be redeemed will be selected by the Indenture Trustee on a pro rata basis or by such other method (which may include random selection by computer) as the Indenture Trustee may deem appropriate.
In addition, this Note may be redeemed, together with all of the other Debt Securities of this Series, in whole, but not in part, at any time at the election of the Issuer for a Redemption Price equal to 100% of the outstanding principal amount of this Note together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon to the Redemption Date, if the Issuer delivers to the Indenture Trustee an opinion of independent Canadian tax counsel experienced in such matters to the effect that the Issuer has become or would become obligated to pay, on the next date on which any amount would be payable under or with respect to the outstanding Debt Securities of this Series, any Additional Amounts as a result of a change in the laws (including any regulations promulgated thereunder) of Canada, or any province or territory thereof or therein or any agency thereof or therein having the power to tax, or any change in any official position regarding the application or interpretation of such laws or regulations, which change is announced or becomes effective on or after the Series Issuance Date; provided that the Issuer determines, in its business judgment, that the obligation to pay such Additional Amounts cannot be avoided by the use of reasonable measures available to the Issuer (not including substitution of the obligor under the Debt Securities of this Series).
The Issuer is required, subject to and in accordance with the provisions of the Indenture, to make an offer to repurchase this Note at a price equal to 101% of the outstanding principal amount of this Note together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon to the date of purchase upon the occurrence of a Change of Control Triggering Event (as defined in the Series Supplement).
The outstanding principal amount of this Note may become or be declared to be due and payable by the Indenture Trustee before maturity in the circumstances set out in Article 6 of the Trust Indenture.
This Note is transferable only in accordance with the provisions of the Indenture and subject to the last two sentences of this paragraph. No transfer of this Note shall be valid unless made on the Register kept by and at the principal office of the Registrar in Calgary, Alberta, by the Holder hereof or its attorney duly appointed by instrument in writing in form and execution satisfactory to the Registrar upon compliance with such reasonable requirements as the Registrar may prescribe. Except as otherwise provided in the Indenture, this Note may be transferred, in whole but not in part, only to another nominee of the Depositary for the 2.05% Notes, Series CAD due October 7, 2030 or to a successor Depositary or to a nominee of such successor Depositary. Unless this certificate is presented by an authorized representative of CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. (“CDS”) to TELUS Corporation (the “Issuer”) or its agent for registration of transfer, exchange or payment, and any certificate issued in respect thereof is registered in the name of CDS & CO., or in such other name
A-3

as is requested by an authorized representative of CDS (and any payment is made to CDS & CO. or to such other entity as is requested by an authorized representative of CDS), ANY TRANSFER, PLEDGE OR OTHER USE HEREOF FOR VALUE OR OTHERWISE BY OR TO ANY PERSON IS WRONGFUL since the registered holder hereof, CDS & CO., has a property interest in the securities represented by this certificate herein and it is a violation of its rights for another person to hold, transfer or deal with this certificate.
The Indenture contains provisions making binding upon all Holders of the Debt Securities of this Series, or upon the Holders of all Series outstanding under the Indenture, certain Holder Actions taken by the Holders of a specified majority of the Debt Securities of this Series, or of all Series, as the case may be, then outstanding.
This Note shall not become obligatory for any purpose until certified by the Indenture Trustee.
