NOTICE OF PROPOSAL TO MAKE A DECLARATION

I PROPOSE TO MAKE A DECLARATION under section 83 of the PBA  that the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund applies to the Plan for the following reasons and such further reasons that may come to my attention:

 

  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 August 30, 2004, and

  4. There are reasonable and probable grounds that the funding requirements of the PBA and    regulations cannot be satisfied. Based on the latest estimate provided by the administrator, there is an estimated claim against the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund of $20,652,000 as at December 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.

YOU are entitled to a hearing by the Financial Services Tribunal (the Tribunal) pursuant to section 89(6) of the PBA, 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*.

Any notice requiring a hearing shall be delivered to the:

 

Financial Services Tribunal
