NOTICE OF INTENDED DECISION


I INTEND TO CONSENT, under section 62.1(5) of the PBA, to the payment out of the pension fund for the Plan to Affinia Canada Corp. in the amount of $8,844 as at March 31, 2013, plus investment earnings thereon to the date of the payment.

I INTEND TO CONSENT FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS:

  1. Affinia Canada Corp. (the Company) is the employer and administrator of the Plan.

  2. The Plan was wound up effective September 30, 2006.

  3. The Plan had a liability under section 75 of the PBA on wind up.

  4. The Company has been funding the liability under section 75 of the PBA.

  5. The application appears to comply with sections 78, 79(3) and all other applicable requirements under the PBA and Regulation 909, R.R.O 1990, as amended.

  6. The latest report prepared by an actuary and filed by the Company as administrator of the Plan under section 32(1) of Regulation 909, R.R.O. 1990, as amended (the Regulation) shows that there is no further amount to be funded. It also shows that there is money remaining in the pension fund in the amount of $8,844.

  7. Section 62.1(4) of the PBA states that if an employer makes an overpayment into the pension fund, the application to the Superintendent of Financial Services for reimbursement for the payment must be made before the later of, (a) 24 months after the date on which the employer made the overpayment; and (b) six months after the date on which the administrator, acting reasonably, becomes aware of the overpayment.

    The Company’s application for the overpayment was received on April 8, 2013, which in my view is within six months after the date on which the Company, acting reasonably became aware of the overpayment, i.e., December 2012, the date the last benefit in the Plan was settled.

    I am satisfied that the Company’s application for overpayment has been filed within the time limits set out in 62.1(4) of the PBA.

  8. Such further and other reasons as may come to my attention.

YOU ARE ENTITLED TO A HEARING by the Financial Services Tribunal (the “Tribunal”) pursuant to section 89(6) of the PBA. To request a hearing, you must deliver to the Tribunal a written notice that you require a hearing, within thirty (30) days after this Notice of Intended Decision is served on you.1
