No request requiring 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 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

  • The Plan was wound up effective December 1, 2004, and

  • 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 $1,643,000 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.




DATED at Toronto, Ontario, this 15th day of May, 2007


Tom Golfetto
Director, Pension Plans Branch
by Delegated Authority from
the Superintendent of Financial Services
