    I'm guessing this has something to do with the BMO Discount Bond Index ETF but beyond that I don't understand the question.  More details please.

    something doesn't make sense

    if the ETF declared a dividend, and you choose to reinvest it, are you stating the ETF doesn't change the number of shares you have???? that doesn't make sense.

    please reconfirm; and if that is corret, how do you get the benefit of the dividend on a reinvestment as the price would normally fall by the same amount as the dividend.

    So then how is it a "reinvested dividend?"  As far as I can see the BMO ETFs do make cash distributions and apparently reinvestment of dividends is allowed in the "usual fashion" of more units of the ETF (Emphasis added::
    BMO ETFs
    Distribution Reinvestment
    1. Introduction

    This Distribution Reinvestment Plan has been created by each of the BMO ETFs to provide
    Unitholders with a method of reinvesting cash distributions payable to them in additional Units
    of the same BMO ETF.

    Distributions on Units will be reinvested on behalf of Plan Participants by the Plan Agent, on the
    terms and conditions contained in the Plan.
    If you're not getting additional units then what's actually happening that you've somehow invested "more money" in the ETF?
