|vi.||The Tenant shall have the right to contest or review by legal proceedings or in such manner as the Tenant in its opinion shall deem advisable (which proceedings or other steps taken by the Tenant shall be conducted diligently at its own expense and free of expense to the Landlord) any and all Taxes levied, assessed or imposed upon or against the Leased Premises or taxes in lieu thereof required to be paid by the Tenant hereunder. No such contest shall defer or suspend the Tenant’s obligations to pay the Taxes as herein provided pending the contest, but if by law it is necessary that such payment be suspended to preserve or perfect the Tenant’s contest, then the contest shall not be undertaken without there being first deposited with the Landlord a sum of money equal to twice the amount of the Taxes that are the subject of the contest, to be held by the Landlord as an indemnity to pay such Taxes upon conclusion of the contest and all costs thereof that may be imposed upon the Landlord or the Leased Premises.|

The Landlord covenants to remit Taxes collected from the Tenant to the appropriate taxing authority having jurisdiction as and when due.|
|xi.||Despite any other provisions of this Lease, the Tenant shall pay to the Landlord an amount equal to any and all goods and services taxes, sales taxes, value added taxes, business transfer taxes, or any other taxes imposed on the Landlord or the Tenant with respect to the Rent payable by the Tenant to the Landlord under this Lease, or in respect of the rental of space under this Lease, whether characterized as a goods and services tax, sales tax, value added tax, business transfer tax, or otherwise (hereinafter individually and collectively called “Sales Taxes”). The amount of the Sales Taxes so payable by the Tenant shall be calculated by the Landlord in accordance with the applicable legislation and shall be paid to the Landlord at the same time as the amounts to which such Sales Taxes apply are payable to the Landlord under the terms of this Lease or upon demand or at such other time or times as the Landlord from time to time determines. Despite any other provisions of this Lease, the amount payable by the Tenant under this paragraph shall be deemed not to be Rent, but the Landlord shall have all of the same remedies for and rights of recovery of such amount as it has for recovery of Rent under this Lease.|

Any assignee, sublessee, trustee, mortgagee or occupant shall execute an indenture, prepared by the Landlord, and covenant directly with the Landlord agreeing to be bound by all of the terms of this Lease as if such assignee, sublessee, trustee, mortgagee or occupant had originally executed this Lease as Tenant.
15.02 Conditions of Consent
Prior to any consent being given, the Landlord shall be entitled to be satisfied, acting reasonably, as to the financial ability and business standing of the proposed assignee, sublessee, trustee, mortgagee or occupant is satisfactory to the Landlord and that the nature of the business to be carried on in the Leased Premises shall not conflict with any other businesses then being carried on by any tenants or occupants of the Building, or possibly put the Landlord in breach of any restrictive covenants which it may have granted.

The Tenant shall not print, publish, post, display or broadcast any notice or advertisement to the effect that the Leased Premises are for lease or for sale or otherwise advertise the proposed sale or lease of the whole or any part of the Leased Premises and shall not permit any broker or other party to do any of the foregoing, unless the complete text and format of any such notice, advertisement or offer is first approved in writing by the Landlord, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Without in any way restricting or limiting the Landlord’s right to refuse any text or format on other grounds, any text or format proposed by the Tenant shall not contain any reference to the rental rate of the Leased Premises.
15.05 Assignment by Landlord

15.06 Corporate Ownership
If the Tenant is a corporation or if the Landlord has consented to an assignment of this Lease or a subletting of the Leased Premises to a corporation, any transfer or issue by sale, assignment, operation of law or other disposition, or by subscription, from time to time, of all or any part of the corporate shares of the Tenant or of any parent or subsidiary corporation of the Tenant or any corporation which is an associate or affiliate of the Tenant (as those terms are defined pursuant to the Business Corporations Act of Ontario and amendments thereto) which results in any change in the present effective voting control of the Tenant as at the date of execution of this Lease (or at the date an assignment of this Lease or subletting of the Leased Premises to a corporation is permitted) shall require the prior written consent of the Landlord and all of the terms and provisions of this Article XV shall apply to same as if same were a request for assignment or subletting pursuant to the provisions of Section 15.01 hereof. The Landlord acknowledges that this Section 15.06 shall not apply to the Tenant so long as the Tenant is or becomes a public corporation, meaning that the shares of the Tenant or of the parent corporation of the Tenant, if any, are listed on a recognized stock exchange.
15.07 Particular Assignment by Trillium
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Lease, so long as the Tenant is Trillium Therapeutics Inc. and is not then in default under this Lease, the Tenant shall be entitled to assign this Lease or sublet the whole or any part of the Leased Premises, without the Landlord’s consent, but upon written notice to the Landlord at least 10 days prior to the effective date thereof, to:
(a) a subsidiary, parent or affiliated corporation of the Tenant (within the meaning of the Canada Business Corporations Jet); provided, in the event that the assignee or subtenant ceases to be a subsidiary, parent or affiliate of the Tenant, a Transfer in respect of which the Landlord’s consent is required as provided for herein shall be deemed to have occurred;
(b) a corporation formed as a result of a merger or amalgamation of the Tenant (within the meaning of the Canada Business Corporations Act) with another corporation; or
(c) the purchaser of the Tenant’s business operations in Canada or a substantial portion thereof (other than as a result of a sale pursuant to bankruptcy, insolvency or similar creditor proceedings), provided that said purchaser is a publicly traded corporation on a major stock exchange in Canada or the United States of America or has a net worth at least equal to that of the Tenant as of the Commencement Date; or If the Tenant (or any permitted assignee thereof) is a corporation whose shares are traded publicly on a recognized exchange, and if such number of shares of such corporation or of any parent or affiliate of such corporation are issued or transferred, whether by operation of law or otherwise, so as to result in a change in the effective control of such corporation then, and so often as such a change of control shall occur, such change shall not be deemed to be an assignment of this Lease, and the Tenant shall notify the Landlord in writing in accordance with this section.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is understood and agreed that, upon any such Transfer, the Tenant will not be released nor relieved from its obligations under this Lease including, without limitation, the obligation to pay Rent and, if the Lease is assigned, the Transferee shall covenant directly with the Landlord to be bound by the terms of the Lease.
DEFAULT OF TENANT
16.01 Right to Re-Enter
|i.||the Tenant shall be in default in the payment of any Rent and such default shall continue for a period of five (5) consecutive days; or|
|ii.||the Tenant shall be in default of any of its covenants, obligations or agreements under this Lease or of any term or condition of this Lease (other than its covenant to pay Rent) and such default shall continue for a period of fifteen (15) consecutive days after written notice by the Landlord to the Tenant specifying with reasonable particularity the nature of such default and requiring the same to be remedied (or, where such default is not capable of remedy within fifteen (15) consecutive days, then if the Tenant shall fail within such period to commence and proceed diligently to remedy such default within such longer period as is reasonably required to effect such remedy);|
then and in any of such cases the then current month’s Rent, together with the Rent for the three (3) months next ensuing shall immediately become due and payable, and at the option of the Landlord, the Term shall become forfeited and void, and the Landlord may without notice or any form of legal process whatsoever forthwith re-enter upon the Leased Premises or any part thereof in the name of the whole and repossess and enjoy the same as of its former estate, anything contained in any statute or law to the contrary notwithstanding, provided, however, that such forfeiture shall be wholly without prejudice to the right of the Landlord to recover arrears of Rent or damages for any antecedent default by the Tenant of its covenants, obligations or agreements under this Lease or any term or condition of this Lease and provided further that notwithstanding any such forfeiture the Landlord may subsequently recover from the Tenant damages for loss of Rent suffered by reason of this Lease having been prematurely determined.
16.02 Right to Relet
Should the Landlord elect to re-enter, as herein provided, or should it take possession pursuant to legal proceedings or pursuant to any notice provided for by law, it may either terminate this Lease or it may from time to time without terminating this Lease, make such alterations and repairs as may be necessary in order to relet the Leased Premises, and relet the Leased Premises or any part thereof as agent for the Tenant for such term or terms (which may be for a term extending beyond the Term of this Lease) and at such rental or rentals and upon such other terms and conditions as the Landlord in its sole discretion may deem advisable; upon each reletting all rentals received by the Landlord from such reletting shall be applied; first, to the payment of any indebtedness other than Rent due hereunder from the Tenant to the Landlord; second, to the repayment of any costs and expenses of such reletting, including brokerage fees and solicitors’ fees and of costs of such alterations and repairs; third, to the payment of Rent due and unpaid hereunder, and the residue, if any, shall be held by the Landlord and applied in payment of future Rent as the same may become due and payable hereunder. If such Rent received from such reletting during any month be less than that to be paid during that month by the Tenant hereunder, the Tenant shall pay any such deficiency to the Landlord. Such deficiency shall be calculated and paid monthly. No such re-entry or taking possession of the Leased Premises by the Landlord shall be construed as an election on its part to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention be given to the Tenant or unless the termination thereof be decreed by a court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any such reletting without termination, the Landlord may at any time thereafter elect to terminate this Lease for such previous breach. Should the Landlord at any time terminate this Lease for any breach, in addition to any other remedies it may have, it may recover from the Tenant all damages it may incur by reason of such breach, including the cost of recovering the Leased Premises, and including the worth at the time of such termination of the excess, if any, of the amount of Rent and charges equivalent to Rent reserved in this Lease for the remainder of the Term hereof over the then reasonable rental value of the Leased Premises for the remainder of the Term hereof, all of which amounts shall be immediately due and payable from the Tenant to the Landlord. In determining the Rent which would be payable by the Tenant hereunder, subsequent to default, the annual Rent for each year of the unexpired Term shall be equal to the then annual Minimum Rent payable by the Tenant at the time of default, together with all Additional Rent which would have been payable during the calendar year in which this Lease was terminated, pro-rated over a full calendar year, if required.
16.03 Legal Expenses
In case suit shall be brought for recovery of possession of the Leased Premises, for the recovery of Rent or any other amount due under the provisions of this Lease, or because of the breach of any other covenant herein contained on the part of the Tenant to be kept or performed and a breach shall be established, Tenant shall pay to Landlord all expenses incurred therefore, including reasonable solicitor’s and counsel fees on a solicitor and his client basis.
The Tenant covenants and agrees that if the Term or any of the goods and chattels of the Tenant on the Leased Premises shall be at any time during the Term seized or taken in execution or attachment by any creditor of the Tenant or if the Tenant shall make any assignment for the benefit of creditors or any bulk sale or, becoming bankrupt or insolvent, shall take the benefit of any Act now or hereafter in force for bankrupt or insolvent debtors or if any order shall be made for the winding up of the Tenant, or if the Leased Premises shall without the written consent of the Landlord become and remain vacant for a period of fifteen (15) days, or be used by any other persons than such as are entitled to use them under the terms of this Lease, or if the Tenant shall without the written consent of the Landlord abandon or attempt to abandon the Leased Premises or to sell or dispose of goods or chattels of the Tenant or to remove them or any of them from the Leased Premises, other than in the ordinary course of its business, so that there would not in the event of such abandonment, sale or disposal be sufficient goods on the Leased Premises subject to distress to satisfy the Rent above due or accruing due, then and in every such case the then current month’s Rent and the next ensuing three (3) months’ Rent shall immediately become due and be paid and the Landlord may re-enter and take possession of the Leased Premises as though the Tenant or the servants of the Tenant or any other occupant of the Leased Premises were holding over after the expiration of the Term and the Term shall, at the option of the Landlord, forthwith become forfeited and determined, and in every one of the cases above such accelerated Rent shall be recoverable by the Landlord in the same manner as the Rent hereby reserved and as if Rent were in arrears and the said option shall be deemed to have been exercised if the Landlord or its agents given notice to the Tenant as provided for herein.
16.05 The Landlord May Perform Covenants
If the Tenant shall fail to perform any of its covenants or obligations under or in respect of this Lease, the Landlord may from time to time at its discretion, perform or cause to be performed any of such covenants or obligations, or any part thereof, and for such purpose may do such things upon or in respect of the Leased Premises or any part thereof as the Landlord may consider requisite or necessary.
All expenses incurred and expenditures made by or on behalf of the Landlord under this Section shall be forthwith paid by the Tenant and if the Tenant fails to pay the same, the Landlord may add the same to the Rent and recover the same by all remedies available to the Landlord for the recovery of Rent in arrears.
16.06 Landlord May Follow Chattels
Provided that in case of removal by the Tenant of the goods and chattels of the Tenant from the Leased Premises, other than in the ordinary course of its business, the Landlord may follow the same for thirty (30) days in the same manner as is provided for in the Commercial Tenancies Act (Ontario).
16.07 Waiver of Exemptions
The Tenant hereby covenants and agrees with the Landlord in consideration of the premises and of the leasing and letting by the Landlord to the Tenant of the Leased Premises for the Term hereby created (and it is upon that express understanding that these presents are entered into) that notwithstanding anything contained in the Commercial Tenancies Act (Ontario), or in any other Statute which may hereafter be passed to take the place of the said Act or to amend the same, none of the goods or chattels owned by the Tenant at any time during the continuance of the Term hereby created on the Leased Premises shall be exempt from levy by distress for Rent in arrears by the Tenant as provided for by any Section or Sections of the said Act, or any amendment or amendments thereto, and that upon any claim being made for such exemption by the Tenant or on distress being made by the Landlord this covenant and agreement may be pleaded as an estoppel against the Tenant in any action brought to test the right to the levying upon any such goods as are named as exempted in said Section or Sections or amendment or amendments thereto, the Tenant waiving as the Tenant hereby does, all and every benefit that could or might have accrued to the Tenant under and by virtue of the said Section or Sections of the said Act or any amendment or amendments thereto but for this covenant.
