No request for a hearing was delivered to the Financial Services Tribunal within the time prescribed by subsection 89(6) of the PBA in respect of a Notice of Proposal to make a Declaration that the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund applies to the Pension Plan for Bargaining Unit Employees of Lindsay Electronics Inc. (the “Plan”).


I DECLARE pursuant to sections 83 and 89 of the Act that the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund (Guarantee Fund) applies to the Plan for the following reasons:




  1. The Plan is registered under the PBA, and

  2. The Plan provides defined benefits that are not exempt from the application of the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund by the PBA or the Regulations made thereunder; and

  3. The Plan was wound up effective December 2, 2005; and

  4. There are reasonable and probable grounds that the funding requirements of the PBA and   regulations cannot be satisfied. The administrator has estimated the deficit in the Plan at     the wind up date to be $3,187,733; and

  5. Based on the latest actuarial certification, there is an estimated claim against the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund of $2,944,684 as at October 31, 2006. 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 10th day of July, 2007

Director, Pension Plans Branch
