No request requiring a hearing was delivered to the Financial Services Tribunal within the time prescribed by subsection 89(6) of the PBA respecting a Notice of Proposal to make a Declaration that the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund applies to Pension Plan for Hourly Employees of Amcan Castings Limited (Burlington Division) (the “Plan”).
I DECLARE pursuant to sections 83 and 89 of the PBA that the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund (Guarantee Fund) applies to the Plan for the following reasons:
- The Plan is registered under the PBA, and
- The Plan provides defined benefits that are not exempt form the application of the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund by the PBA or the Regulations made thereunder, and
- A Notice of Proposal to Order the wind up of the Plan effective September 10, 2007, was issued by the Superintendent on September 4, 2008, and
- There are reasonable and probable grounds that the funding requirements of the PBA and regulations cannot be satisfied. Based on the latest actuarial certification, there is an estimated claim against the Guarantee Fund of $285,394 as at July 31, 2008. If funds become available from the estate of the employer, the administrator will be required to make an appropriate refund of any allocation amount received by the Plan from the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund
DATED at Toronto, Ontario, this 8th day of November, 2008.
