No request requiring a hearing was delivered to the Financial Services Tribunal within the time prescribed by subsection 89(6) of the PBA regarding a Notice of Proposal to make a Declaration that the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund applies to Pension Plan for Non-Union Salaried Employees of St. Anne Nackawic Pulp Company Ltd. (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:
- The Plan is registered under the PBA, and
- The Plan provides defined benefits for certain Ontario members that are not exempt from the application of the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund by the PBA or the Regulations made thereunder, and
- The plan was wound up effective September 14, 2004, 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 Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund of $257,822. 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.
