Canadian Mutual Fund codes are not matching FUNDSERV codes

I am having difficulties to understand what Quicken Canada is using to download mutual fund codes and quotes. Examples:

Example #1:
Quicken Security Symbol Lookup shows:
MUTUAL:SSQA1090 SSQ Lazard Global Infra GIF Basic NLA
MUTUAL:SSQA0090 SSQ Lazard Global Infrastructure GIF Bas

However the fund I am looking for according to FundServ.com is:
41090 SSQ LAZARD INFRASTRUC PRM NLA
43090 SSQ LAZARD INFRASTRUC PRM NLB

Example #2:
Quicken Security Symbol Lookup shows:
MUTUAL:SSQA2024 SSQ Aggressive Strategy GIF Basic
MUTUAL:SSQA1024 SSQ Aggressive Strategy GIF Basic NLA
MUTUAL:SSQA3024 SSQ Aggressive Strategy GIF Basic NLB

However the fund I am looking for according to FundServ.com is:
63024 SSQ AGG STRATEGY GI 2 NLB

What is the source of Quicken;s fund codes?
Why it is not matching the FundServ and the fund provider codes?
How to decode the codes provided by Quicken and match it to FundServ codes?
The overall search user experience of 'Security Symbol Lookup' is very poor.

I am using Quicken Home & Business, R22.35, Build 27.1.22.35, Edition: Canada

Will be nice to get clarification from Quicken's support team.

    It's actually very simple.  There are multiple sources for any quote, and frequently the notation of the symbol varies.
    If you want to download into Q, you need to use the symbols that Q uses.
