NOTICE OF PROPOSAL TO MAKE A DECLARATION
I PROPOSE TO MAKE A DECLARATION under section 83 of the Act that the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund applies to the Plan for the following reasons and such further reasons that may come to my attention:
- The Plan is registered under Quebec’s Supplemental Pension Plans Act, a designated province stipulated under section 1 of the Act, and
- The Plan provides defined benefits that are not exempt from the application of the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund by the Act or the regulations made thereunder, and
- The plan was wound up effective March 10, 2005 , and
- There are reasonable and probable grounds that the funding requirements of the Act and regulations cannot be satisfied. Based on the latest actuarial certification, there is an estimated claim against the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund of $127,200. If funds become available from the estate of the employer, the Plan administrator will be required to make an appropriate refund of any allocation amount received by the Plan from the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund.
YOU ARE ENTITLED TO A HEARING by the Financial Services Tribunal (the Tribunal) pursuant to section 89(6) of the Act, if, within thirty (30) days after the Notice of Proposal is served on you, you deliver to the Tribunal a written notice that you require a hearing.
