I e-mailed Pembina about this and the response is below. Also US stock holders cannot join DRIP until it listed on the NYSE, but they will get cash dividends.
Upon closing of the proposed transaction, you would receive regular monthly dividends from Pembina Pipeline Corporation. At present, Pembina’s DRIP does not provide for the participation of US residents, but that is subject to change going forward. Pembina will likely investigate amending its DRIP to allow for US residents to be eligible to participate after receiving approval to proceed with the proposed listing of Pembina’s securities on the NYSE.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

Canadian and U.S. Tax Considerations for Provident Shareholders
The Arrangement Agreement has been structured to allow Provident shareholders to receive Pembina shares generally on a tax-deferred basis for Canadian income tax purposes. In addition, the Arrangement Agreement has been structured so that the Arrangement will qualify as a tax-free transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes. If the Arrangement qualifies as a tax-free transaction, Provident shareholders who receive Pembina shares will not be required to recognize gain and will not be permitted to recognize loss. However, there can be no assurance that the U.S. Internal Revenue Service will not challenge the treatment of the Arrangement as a tax-free transaction.
About the Transaction
I guess we get the security on the pink sheets line, though I am not sure. I hold PVX in an IRA, so it won't matter if I sell or take the stock, but I was in a taxed account I would prefer to move into stock if possible.
