Pension Benefits Act
  • Section 70(6)
  • On the partial wind up of a pension plan,
    members, former members and other persons
    entitled to benefits under the pension plan shall
    have rights and benefits that are not less than
    the rights and benefits they would have on a full
    wind up of the pension plan on the effective date
    of the partial wind up.

What did the SCC say?
  • A partial wind up requires a full wind up to
    notionally occur for the purposes of evaluating
    the pro rata share of the assets and liabilities
    related to the partial wind up, followed by the
    continuation of the remainder of the Plan.
  • For wind ups in whole or in part, the main
    concern is severing the terminated part of the
    Plan and ensuring Affected Members receive their
    legal entitlements, if any, as beneficiaries
    through the distribution of assets related to the
    part of the Plan being wound up.

Surplus Distribution Requirements
  • Pension Benefits Act, Section 79(3)
  • the pension plan provides for the payment of
    surplus to the employer on the wind up of the
    pension plan
  • Regulation 909, Section 8
  • 2/3 consent

What is FSCO asking for?
  • Allocation of assets as of the partial wind up
    date pro rata to wind up liabilities

    current date
