SUPPLEMENTAL PENSION PLANS ACT — ABITIBIBOWATER — COMPANIES’ CREDITORS ARRANGEMENT
Supplemental Pension Plans Act
(chapter R-15.1, s. 2).
R-15.1
Act to amend the Supplemental Pension Plans Act and to provide for the possibility of opting to receive a pension paid by the Régie des rentes du Québec during the existence of certain plans in the pulp and paper sector
(2011, chapter 8, s. 2, 5th par.).
September 1 2012
DIVISION I
APPLICATION
1. This Regulation applies to the pension plans referred to in Appendix A as well as every pension plan to which the Supplemental Pension Plans Act (chapter R-15.1; hereinafter referred to as “the Act”) applies and whose liabilities include obligations arising from a pension plan referred to in Appendix A or Appendix B for service completed prior to 1 January 2011, if the employer party to the plans - or, in the case of a multi-employer plan, every employer party to the plan - is AbitibiBowater Inc. or a legal person for which AbitibiBowater Inc. holds, directly or indirectly, all shares carrying voting rights.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 1.
2. A pension plan whose liabilities include obligations other than those arising from a pension plan referred to in Appendix A or Appendix B for service completed prior to 1 January 2011 is comprised of 2 components.
A first component comprises only the portion of the liabilities of the plan related to obligations arising from a plan referred to in Appendix A or Appendix B for service completed prior to 1 January 2011 and the portion of the assets of the plan corresponding to those liabilities. This component, called an “affected component”, is governed by this Regulation to the extent provided herein.
The other component is comprised of the remaining liabilities and assets of the plan and, insofar as funding, the appropriation of any eventual surplus assets, divisions and mergers, as well as the settlement of the benefits of members and beneficiaries on termination are concerned, is governed by the Act as though it were a pension plan separate from the affected component.
The pension fund of the plan is therefore divided into 2 separate accounts.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 2.
3. For the purposes of this Regulation, a reference to the affected component of a pension plan referred to in Appendix A or Appendix B at a date where the plan has no obligations other than those arising from service completed prior to 1 January 2011, is a reference to the plan as a whole.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 3.
4. Through 30 December 2020, the affected component of a pension plan shall be exempt from the application of the following provisions of the Act as well as any other provision of that Act to the extent that it is incompatible with the provisions of this Regulation:
(1)  subparagraph 2 of the second paragraph of section 11;
(2)  section 42.1;
(3)  section 132;
(4)  section 146;
(5)  section 199.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 4.
5. Section 39 of the Act notwithstanding, the employer contributions that an employer must pay into the account of the affected component of the pension fund of a pension plan for the fiscal years ending between 30 December 2011 and 1 January 2021 is comprised of the amortization payments provided for in Division III, that is, the basic amortization payment, the supplemental sum and the special amortization payment.
For the fiscal year ending on 31 December 2010, the employer contributions that an employer must pay into the pension fund of a pension plan is comprised of the current service contribution determined in accordance with sections 138 and 139 of the Act and the amortization payments provided for in Division III.
If applicable, to these contributions is added the contribution provided for in Division IV.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 5; O.C. 299-2014, s. 1.
6. For the purposes of this Regulation, notwithstanding Division VI.1, and unless otherwise indicated, to determine the technical actuarial deficiency or the degree of solvency of a pension plan or of the affected component of a pension plan, the assets are determined according to their market value and are not reduced by the estimated amount of the administration costs to be paid out of the pension fund should the pension plan be terminated. The assets shall also be determined without considering the value of the contributions that the employer has failed to pay into the pension fund or into the account of the affected component of the pension fund.
However, the technical actuarial deficiency and the degree of solvency of a pension plan referred to in Appendix B, or of the affected component of a pension plan registered with Ontario’s Superintendent of Financial Services are respectively considered to be the “adjusted solvency deficiency” and the “adjusted solvency ratio” of the pension plan or the affected component, determined in accordance with the applicable Ontario legislation.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 6; O.C. 1090-2012, s. 1.
7. The obligation to pay an amount as an amortization payment for the fiscal years ending on 31 December 2009 or on 31 December 2010 of a pension plan referred to in Appendix A, the payment of which was suspended by an order under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. C-36) is replaced by the obligations provided for in this Regulation.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 7.
DIVISION II
BALANCE OF THE VALUE OF THE BENEFITS OF THE MEMBERS AND BENEFICIARIES
8. Through 31 December 2020, the balance of the value of benefits accumulated prior to 1 January 2011 under a pension plan referred to in Appendix A or in Appendix B which, under the terms of sections 143 to 145.1 of the Act, cannot be paid, is paid with interest from the account of the affected component of the pension fund of the plan on the earlier of the following dates:
(1)  5 years from the date of the initial payment;
(2)  the date on which the member attains normal retirement age.
The balance may also be paid as of the day on which it is funded.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 8.
DIVISION III
AMORTIZATION PAYMENTS
§ 1.  — Basic amortization payment
9. For the fiscal year of a pension plan ending on 31 December 2010, the basic amortization payment corresponds to that portion of $3,150,685 that the technical actuarial deficiency of the plan at 30 September 2010 represents of the total of the actuarial deficiencies of the pension plans referred to in Appendix A or in Appendix B at that date.
This payment, made in one lump sum, bears interest from 31 December 2010 at the rate of return of the account of the affected component of the pension fund.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 9.
10. For each fiscal year of a pension plan ending between 30 December 2011 and 1 January 2021, the basic amortization payment is the total of the 12 monthly payments that have been determined for the fiscal year.
A monthly payment is the portion of $4,166,667 for each fiscal year of a pension plan ending between 30 December 2011 and 1 January 2013, and the portion of $6,666,667 for each fiscal year of a pension plan ending between 30 December 2013 and 1 January 2021 that the technical actuarial deficiency of the affected component of the pension plan represents of the total of the technical actuarial deficiencies of the affected components of the pension plans, as established on the following date:
(1)  for each of the first 6 monthly payments of the fiscal year, the date of the end of the second last fiscal year;
(2)  for each of the other 6 monthly payments of the fiscal year, the date of the end of the previous fiscal year.
A monthly payment is payable on the last day of the month for each month included in the fiscal year.
Notwithstanding the second paragraph, each of the first 6 monthly payments of the fiscal year ending on 31 December 2011 corresponds to that portion of $4,166,667 that the technical actuarial deficiency of the plan at 30 September 2010 represents of the total of the technical actuarial deficiencies of the pension plans referred to in Appendix A or in Appendix B at that date.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 10; O.C. 299-2014, s. 2.
11. The technical actuarial deficiency of the affected component of a pension plan at the date of an actuarial valuation corresponds to the amount by which the liabilities of the affected component, after deducting the value of the additional obligations arising from an amendment to the plan considered for the first time at the time of the valuation, exceed the assets of the component.
The assets and liabilities that the benefits of the members and beneficiaries represent and which are paid under the provisions of Division VI.1 on the basis of the degree of solvency of the plan as at 31 December of a given year shall not be included for the purpose of calculating the technical actuarial deficiency at that date.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 11; O.C. 1090-2012, s. 2.
12. In cases where, for any month of a fiscal year of a pension plan, the total of the monthly payments payable under this Regulation or the applicable Ontario legislation to the affected component of the pension plans for the basic amortization payment is less than $4,166,667, a supplement to the basic amortization payment shall be determined.
The supplement corresponds to a proportion of the amount by which $4,166,667 exceeds the total of the monthly payments for that month. That proportion corresponds to the technical actuarial deficiency of the affected component of the pension plan divided by the total of the technical actuarial deficiencies of the affected components of the pension plans, as established on the following date:
(1)  for each of the first 6 monthly payments of the fiscal year, the date of the end of the previous fiscal year;
(2)  for each of the other 6 monthly payments of the fiscal year, the date of the end of the fiscal year.
For the purposes of the second paragraph, a pension plan to which the supplement cannot be paid due to the termination of the plan is not taken into account.
The supplement to the basic amortization payment is payable in full the last day of the month following the one in which the actuarial valuation report at the date of the end of the fiscal year referred to in subparagraph 1 or subparagraph 2 of the second paragraph, as the case may be, must be sent to Retraite Québec.
However, for each fiscal year of a pension plan ending between 30 December 2013 and 1 January 2021, the amount “$4,166,667” shall be replaced by “$6,666,667” wherever it appears.

§ 3.  — Supplemental sum
18. For each fiscal year of a pension plan ending between 30 December 2016 and 1 January 2023, the supplemental sum corresponds to the predetermined portion of the overall supplemental sum for that fiscal year.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 18.
19. The overall supplemental sum for a fiscal year corresponds to the total of the payments determined in accordance with section 23 or section 24 and payable during the fiscal year with respect to a payment deficiency from a previous fiscal year.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 19.
20. A payment deficiency is determined for each fiscal year ending between 30 December 2015 and 1 January 2020, if the overall degree of solvency on the fiscal year end date is more than 2 percentage points less than the overall target degree of solvency at that date.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 20.
20.1. The overall degree of solvency at the date of the end of a fiscal year corresponds to element A in the following formula, rounded to the nearest multiple of 0,1%:
A = (B + C) / (D + E), where
“B” corresponds to the total value of the assets of the affected components of the pension plans registered with Retraite Québec, established regardless of the amount of the contributions under Division IV, increased by the special amortization payment provided for in section 28 but reduced in accordance with the first paragraph of section 127 of the Act;
“C” corresponds to the total of the adjusted solvency assets of the affected components of those pension plans registered with Ontario’s Superintendent of Financial Services, determined in accordance with the applicable Ontario legislation but without taking into account the special contributions required as a result of a reduction in the employer’s pulp and paper production capacity in Ontario or Quebec provided for under that legislation;
“D” corresponds to the total of the value of the liabilities of the affected components of the pension plans registered with Retraite Québec, reduced in accordance with the first paragraph of section 127 of the Act;
“E” corresponds to the total of the solvency liabilities of the affected components of those pension plans registered with Ontario’s Superintendent of Financial Services, determined in accordance with the applicable Ontario legislation.
O.C. 299-2014, s. 5.
20.2. The overall target threshold degree of solvency, which cannot exceed 100%, corresponds:
(1)  at 31 December 2011 and at 31 December 2012, to the overall degree of solvency at 31 December 2010;
(2)  at 31 December 2013, to the overall target threshold degree of solvency at 31 December 2012, increased by one percentage point;
(3)  at 31 December 2014, to the overall target threshold degree of solvency at 31 December 2013;
(4)  at 31 December 2015, to the overall target threshold degree of solvency at 31 December 2014, increased by one percentage point;
(5)  at 31 December 2016, to the overall target threshold degree of solvency at 31 December 2015, increased by one percentage point;
(6)  at 31 December 2017, to the overall target threshold degree of solvency at 31 December 2016, increased by 2 percentage points;
(7)  at 31 December 2018, to the overall target threshold degree of solvency at 31 December 2017, increased by 3 percentage points;
(8)  at 31 December 2019, to the overall target threshold degree of solvency at 31 December 2018, increased by 2 percentage points.
O.C. 299-2014, s. 5.
21. The amount of the payment deficiency for a fiscal year, which may not, however, be less than zero, corresponds to element “A” of the following formula:
A = B’ + F + G - H
“B’” represents the sum of elements B in the following formula, as determined for the affected component of each pension plan registered with Retraite Québec:
B = C × (100% - D)
“C” represents the sum of the pensions paid during the fiscal year from the account of the affected component of the pension fund of the pension plan;
“D” represents the degree of solvency of the affected component of the pension plan at the previous fiscal year end date, determined without taking into account section 6;
“F” represents the sum of all benefits and interest paid in application of the first paragraph of section 8 during the fiscal year;
“G” represents the total of the payments made for unfunded benefits for the fiscal year, determined in accordance with the applicable Ontario legislation, for the affected component of each pension plan registered with Ontario’s Superintendent of Financial Services;
“H” represents the total of $80,000,000 and any amount not required set out under section 54.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 21; O.C. 299-2014, s. 6.
22. The degree of solvency of the affected component of a pension plan at a given date corresponds to the percentage that the value of the assets of that component, increased by the special amortization payment provided for in section 28 but reduced as provided in the first paragraph of section 127 of the Act, represents over the value of the liabilities of the component reduced in the same manner.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 22.
23. A payment deficiency may be amortized in as many payments as fiscal years in the amortization period.
The payments shall be equal. They are determined using an interest rate identical to the rate used to establish the liabilities of the affected components when determining their degree of solvency.
The amortization period for the payment deficiency for a fiscal year begins the first day of the following fiscal year and may not exceed 3 fiscal years.
A payment is payable in full the last day of the seventh month of each fiscal year included in the amortization period.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 23.
24. Sections 21 to 23 notwithstanding, for the first fiscal year in which a payment deficiency that is greater than zero has been determined, the lesser of the payment deficiency and $25,000,000 is payable in full on the last day of the seventh month of the following fiscal year.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 24.
25. The predetermined portion of the overall supplemental sum for a fiscal year corresponds to the portion of the aforementioned sum that the shortfall in solvency assets of the affected component of the pension plan at the date of the end of the previous fiscal year represents of the total of the shortfalls in solvency assets of the affected components of the pension plans at that date.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, a pension plan to which a supplemental sum for the fiscal year cannot be paid due to the termination of the plan is not taken into account.
Moreover, the predetermined portion of the overall supplemental sum for a fiscal year for a pension plan may not exceed the shortfall in solvency assets for the affected component of the pension plan at the last day of the previous fiscal year.
The shortfall in solvency assets, at the end of the plan’s fiscal year, of the affected component of a pension plan registered with Retraite Québec means the amount which, where added to the assets of the component at the aforementioned date, would allow its degree of solvency to equal its target degree of solvency at that same date.
The target degree of solvency of the affected component of a pension plan is determined by increasing, at the dates and to the extent provided for in paragraphs 1 to 8 of section 20.2, the degree of solvency of the pension plan at 31 December 2010. It may not, however, exceed 100%.
For those pension plans registered with Ontario’s Superintendent of Financial Services, the shortfall in solvency assets of the affected component is determined in accordance with the applicable Ontario legislation.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 25; O.C. 299-2014, s. 7.
26. Where, for a fiscal year of a pension plan, the total of the supplementary sums - determined in accordance with section 25 or an equivalent provision of the applicable Ontario legislation - is less than the overall supplementary sum for the fiscal year, an amount must be added to the supplementary sum payable to the affected component of a pension plan at the time that sum is calculated.
That amount corresponds to a proportion of the amount by which the overall supplementary sum exceeds the total of the supplementary sums determined for the fiscal year. That proportion is represented by the technical actuarial deficiency of the affected component of the pension plan at the date of the end of the previous fiscal year divided by the total of the technical actuarial deficiencies of the affected components of the pension plans at that same date.
For the purposes of the second paragraph, a pension plan to which the supplemental sum cannot be paid for the fiscal year due to the termination of the plan is not taken into account.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 26.
27. Sections 25 and 26 notwithstanding, for the fiscal year of a pension plan ending on 31 December 2021 and the fiscal year ending on 31 December 2022, the predetermined portion of the overall supplemental sum corresponds to element A in the following formula:
A = B × [(C+D)/E], where
“B” corresponds to the overall supplementary sum for the fiscal year;
“C” corresponds to the supplementary sum, determined in accordance with section 25 and payable to the affected component of the pension plan for the fiscal year ending on 31 December 2020;
“D” corresponds to the amount added to the supplementary sum, determined in accordance with section 26 for the fiscal year ending on 31 December 2020;
“E” corresponds to the overall supplementary sum for the fiscal year ending on 31 December 2020.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 27.
§ 4.  — Special amortization payment
28. Where, further to an amendment made between 30 December 2010 and 1 January 2021, an actuarial valuation determines the value of additional obligations of the affected component of a pension plan, a special amortization payment is determined.
The payment corresponds to the higher of the value of the additional obligations determined on a solvency basis or their value determined on a funding basis.
The special amortization payment must be paid into the account of the affected component of the pension fund as soon as the report on the first actuarial valuation considering the amendment is sent to Retraite Québec. To such sum shall be added accrued interest, if any, from the date of the valuation, calculated at the rate of return of the account.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 28.
DIVISION IV
CONTRIBUTION IN CASE OF PRODUCTION CUTBACKS
29. The pension committee shall notify Retraite Québec in writing of any compensatory amount that, under the terms of an agreement signed in accordance with the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. C-36) and that concerns the pension plans referred to in this Regulation, must be paid to a pension plan as a contribution in the case of a production cutback.
In the case of a production cutback, a contribution is determined for each fiscal year of a pension plan during which becomes payable one of the payments determined in accordance with section 30.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 29; O.C. 299-2014, s. 8.
30. The compensatory amount referred to in section 29 may be amortized in as many payments as fiscal years in the amortization period.
The payments shall be equal. They are determined using an interest rate identical to the rate used to establish the liabilities of the affected components when determining their degree of solvency.
The amortization period for a compensatory amount begins the first day of the fiscal year following the one in which it becomes payable and may not exceed 4 fiscal years.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 30.
31. The contribution for a plan’s fiscal year corresponds to the portion of the payment payable during that fiscal year that the technical actuarial deficiency of the affected component of the pension plan at the date of the end of the previous fiscal year represents of the total of the technical actuarial deficiencies of the affected components of the pension plans at that date.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, a pension plan to which the contribution for the fiscal year cannot be made due to the termination of the plan is not taken into account.
The contribution is payable in full the last day of the seventh month of the fiscal year.

DIVISION VI.1
RIGHT OF CERTAIN MEMBERS AND BENEFICIARIES TO OPT TO HAVE A PENSION PAID OUT OF THE ASSETS ADMINISTERED BY RETRAITE QUÉBEC
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
§ 1.  — Right to the option
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.1. The option of having a pension paid out of the assets administered by Retraite Québec under section 230.0.0.4 of the Act shall be offered to each member and beneficiary to whom, on 31 August of a given year, a pension is being paid under the plan since at least 1 January of that year.
The pension paid by Retraite Québec is the pension, in relation with service prior to 1 January 2011, reduced according to the degree of solvency of the affected component of the pension plan as at 31 December of the year for which the payment option is chosen.
The assets over which Retraite Québec exercises its powers under the provisions of subdivision 4.0.1 of Division II of Chapter XIII of the Act are the assets of the plan that correspond to the part of the benefits of the members and beneficiaries who have opted to have a pension paid by Retraite Québec that represents the value of the pension referred to in the second paragraph.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.2. The option shall be exercised on the basis of the estimated degree of solvency of the affected component of the pension plan as at 31 December of the year for which the payment option is chosen.
It is exercised on the condition that, as provided under sections 46.9 and 46.10, the degree of solvency of the affected component, determined no later than 31 May of the following year, is at least equal to the estimated degree of solvency.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.3. The time allotted the members and beneficiaries to transmit the option chosen to the pension committee expires on 15 December of the year for which the payment option is chosen.
Should a member or beneficiary not inform the pension committee of the option chosen by the expiry of that time limit, all benefits held by that person shall remain in the pension plan.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.4. To estimate the degree of solvency of the affected component of the pension plan as at 31 December of the year for which the payment option is chosen,
(1)  the solvency liabilities of the affected component, determined in the actuarial valuation as at 31 December of the preceding year, are projected for 31 December of the year in question, using the same interest rate as the one used to determine the liabilities in that valuation, where the rate is adjusted to take into account the one in effect on 31 August of the year in question.
(2)  the assets of the affected component, determined as at the most recent date possible, are projected for 31 December of the year in question taking into account the expected long-term rate of return for the account of the affected component, in accordance with the investment policy of the plan, and is reduced by the estimated amount of the administration costs to be paid out of the account of the affected component in the event of termination.
The projection of the liabilities shall, to the extent possible, take into consideration, according to the type of members, the benefits payable during the current year. The projection of the assets shall, to the extent possible, take into consideration the contributions and benefits payable between the date on which the assets were determined and 31 December of the year in question.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
§ 2.  — Information to members and beneficiaries
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.5. For the purpose of exercising the right to the option, the pension committee shall transmit to each member and beneficiary referred to in section 46.1 a statement of benefits determined as at 31 August of the year for which the payment option is chosen as well as the information required for exercising that option.
The statement of benefits, which is to be provided within the same time period as the statement of benefits referred to in section 112 of the Act, shall indicate:
(1)  the estimated degree of solvency of the affected component of the pension plan as at 31 December of the year in question;
(2)  the amount of the pension related to benefits resulting from service prior to 1 January 2011 paid to the member or beneficiary under the plan;
(3)  the amount of the pension reduced according to the estimated degree of solvency of the plan that could be paid by Retraite Québec;
(4)  the effect any difference between the estimated degree of solvency and the degree of solvency, determined in accordance with section 46.8 will have on the option as referred to in sections 46.9 and 46.10;
(5)  that the pension paid by Retraite Québec has the same features as the pension to which the member or beneficiary is entitled under the pension plan;
(6)  that choosing to have one’s pension paid by Retraite Québec constitutes the settlement of the benefits of the member or beneficiary.
The statement shall also indicate the expiry date of the time, set out in section 46.3, for informing the pension committee of the option chosen and that, should no choice be received by the pension committee before the expiry of the time set out, the benefits of the member or beneficiary shall remain in the plan.
The information provided by Retraite Québec pertaining to the administration of the pensions it pays shall, among other things, accompany the statement.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.6. Where the pension committee is informed of the formation of a representative association for the purposes of the pension plan of the members and beneficiaries to whom section 46.1 applies, the committee must enclose the notice required under section 113.1 of the Act with the statement.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.7. The pension committee shall invite the members and beneficiaries referred to in section 46.1 to an information session on the option being offered. The notice of the session must be given in writing a minimum of 5 days prior to the meeting and the meeting must be held no later than 10 days before the expiry of the time set out under section 46.3 for informing the pension committee of the option chosen.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
§ 3.  — Confirmation of option
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.8. No later than 31 May of the year following the one for which the payment option is chosen, the pension committee shall have determined the degree of solvency of the affected component of the plan as at 31 December of the for which the option was chosen.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.9. Where the degree of solvency of the affected component of the pension plan is equal to or greater than the estimated degree of solvency, the members and beneficiaries who opted to have a pension paid out of the assets administered by Retraite Québec are deemed to have confirmed their choice of option.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.10. Where the degree of solvency of the affected component of the pension plan is less than the estimated degree of solvency, the pension committee shall, no later than 10 June of the year following the one for which the payment option is chosen, inform those members and beneficiaries who opted to have a pension paid by Retraite Québec, and notify them that their benefits shall remain in the plan unless their choice of option is reiterated within 15 days after the date on which the notice is sent.
The notice must be accompanied with a statement of benefits that includes the same information as the statement referred to in 46.5, with the exception of the information referred to in paragraph 4 of the second paragraph of that section, adjusted, however, on the basis of the degree of solvency determined and the expiry date set in accordance with the first paragraph.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3; O.C. 299-2014, s. 13.
§ 4.  — Settlement process for benefits
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.11. The value of the benefits, for the purposes of settling the benefits of the members and beneficiaries who have opted to have a pension paid by Retraite Québec from the assets administered by Retraite Québec, shall be determined after 1 July of the year following the one for which the payment option is chosen.
The pension committee shall proceed to pay the benefits within 5 working days following the date on which their value is calculated but no later than 15 July.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3; I.N. 2016-01-01 (NCCP).
46.12. To determine the value of the benefits of the affected members and beneficiaries for the purpose of settlement, the premium determined using the assumptions for hypothetical wind-up and solvency valuations established by the Canadian Institute of Actuaries as applicable on the date on which the calculation is carried out shall be used.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.13. Where the pension of the member or beneficiary has been guaranteed by an insurer for a value that exceeds the portion of the benefits of the member or beneficiary referred to in the third paragraph of section 46.1, the insurer shall, at the request of the pension committee, allocate the value of the surplus to the non-guaranteed benefits of other members or beneficiaries of the plan. Where such an allocation is not possible, the insurer shall pay into the pension fund the commuted value of the guaranteed pension on the date the benefits are paid or, where the contract does not provide for a commuted value, the fair market value of the guarantee determined on the basis of reasonable assumptions and cancellation fees.
In addition, the portion of guaranteed benefits included in the aggregate assets transferred to Retraite Québec under this Division in relation with the plans as a whole for a given year may not be more than 50%. The guaranteed benefits in excess of that percentage shall be allocated or paid into the pension fund in accordance with the provisions of the first paragraph.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.14. Notwithstanding section 46.9 or 46.10, the death of a member or beneficiary prior to the date on which the benefits are paid renders null the option of having a pension paid by Retraite Québec from the assets of the plan where chosen by the member or beneficiary.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.15. The pension committee shall, no later than the date of settlement, send to Retraite Québec all the information held on the members and beneficiaries who have opted to have a pension paid out of the assets administered by Retraite Québec.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
§ 5.  — Pension paid out of the assets administered by Retraite Québec
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.16. Administration by Retraite Québec under the provisions of Division III of the Regulation to provide a framework for settlement of the benefits of members and beneficiaries of plans covered by subdivision 4.0.1 of Division II of Chapter XIII of the Supplemental Pension Plans Act and for administration by Retraite Québec of certain pensions paid out of the assets of the plans (chapter R-15.1, r. 3), can encompass all members and beneficiaries of some or all of the pension plans whose benefits are paid under this Division in the same year, and the assets of those plans that correspond to the portion of the benefits of the members and beneficiaries referred to in the third paragraph of section 46.1. The plans administered collectively are therefore deemed, for such purposes, to constitute a single plan.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
§ 6.  — Special provisions for year 2012
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.
46.17. For the purpose of exercising the right to have a pension paid out of the assets administered by the Régie, reduced according to the degree of solvency of the affected component of the pension plan as at 31 December 2012, the following modifications apply:
(1)  the time allotted under section 46.3 expires on 1 March 2013;

(3)  the statement of benefits referred to in section 46.5 must be provided by 1 January 2013.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 3.

The notice sent by the pension committee must describe the proposed changes to the funding rules for a pension plan subject to this Regulation.
Should the members or beneficiaries not make a request to the pension committee, within 15 days after the notice is sent, to have their benefits remain in the pension plan, the members or beneficiaries will be deemed to have confirmed their choice of option.
Notwithstanding section 46.11, the time limit for proceeding to pay the benefits expires on 15 August 2013.
O.C. 696-2013, s. 1.
46.19. Notwithstanding section 41, the actuarial valuation report as at 31 December 2012 and the global report at that date shall be sent to the Régie no later than 31 August 2013.
The employer shall, until the actuarial valuation report as at 31 December 2012 and the global report at that date have been sent to the Régie, continue to pay the monthly amounts set out under subparagraph 1 of the second paragraph of section 10.
Where the monthly payments so paid are less than what should have been paid in accordance with subparagraph 2 of the second paragraph of section 10, the first monthly amount payable after the transmission of the reports to the Régie shall be increased by the difference between the monthly amounts paid and the amounts that should have been paid according to the reports, plus the interest provided for in section 48.

O.C. 856-2011, s. 47; O.C. 299-2014, s. 14.
48. Notwithstanding subparagraph 5 of the first paragraph of section 59 of the Regulation respecting supplemental pension plans (chapter R-15.1, r. 6), where the value of the benefits referred to in section 8 has been paid only in part by the application of sections 143 to 145.1 of the Act, the annual statement provided for in section 112 of the Act shall indicate the balance owing, the date on which the balance is to be paid and the fact that the interest accrued at that date is to be added to the balance.

MISCELLANEOUS, TRANSITIONAL AND FINAL PROVISIONS
§ 1.  — Miscellaneous provisions
52. For the purposes of this Regulation, the expression “applicable Ontario legislation” refers in particular to the regulation entitled “Abibow Canada Inc. Pension Plans Regulation” (O. Reg. 196/11).
O.C. 856-2011, s. 52.
53. No improvement unfunded actuarial liability may be determined with regards to the affected component of a pension plan.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 53.
54. Any amount not required under this Regulation or under the equivalent provision of the applicable Ontario legislation - including any amount for the purposes of funding the balance of the value of benefits - that is paid into the affected component of a pension plan during a fiscal year must correspond to the portion of the total of such amounts that the technical actuarial deficiency of the affected component of the pension plan at the date of the end of the previous fiscal year represents of the total of the technical actuarial deficiencies of the affected components of the pension plans at that date.
That amount shall be indicated in the actuarial valuation report of the affected component sent to Retraite Québec in accordance with section 41 not later than the date of the payment. Furthermore, the amount and the total of such amounts shall be indicated in the global report accompanying the report on the actuarial valuation.
The most recent report on the actuarial valuation that was sent to Retraite Québec in accordance with section 41 and the global report accompanying it may also be amended or replaced in order that the amount and the total of such amounts be shown therein. The amended reports or new reports shall then be sent to Retraite Québec no later than the date of the payment. In such a case, the ratio provided for in the first paragraph is based on the technical actuarial deficiencies as at the date of the actuarial valuation whose report has been thus amended or replaced.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 54.
55. Where, under section 39.1 of the Act, Retraite Québec authorizes an employer to pay into the affected component of a pension plan a contribution less than that required under this Regulation, a portion of the difference shall be paid into the affected components of those pension plans registered with Retraite Québec, according to the terms and conditions determined by Retraite Québec.
The same applies where provisions of the Ontario legislation allow that, due to fiscal limits, a lesser contribution than that otherwise required under the provisions of the Ontario legislation equivalent to the Regulation be paid into a pension plan registered with Ontario’s Superintendent of Financial Services.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 55.
56. The fiscal year of a pension plan corresponds to a calendar year.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 56.
57. AbitibiBowater Inc. means the legal person legally incorporated in that name in 2007 under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and registered in Québec under number 1164884059 and, since 24 May 2012, Produits Forestiers Résolu Inc., registered in Québec under that same number.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 57; O.C. 299-2014, s. 17.
58. An amendment to a pension plan that pertains to the division of the assets and liabilities of the pension plan or the merger of all or part of the assets and liabilities of several pension plans into a single plan may, if the amendment concerns the affected component of the plan, take effect only at the date of the end of a fiscal year of the plan.
The amendment shall be considered for the first time on the date of the actuarial valuation that corresponds to the date it becomes effective.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 58.
59. Where a global report has been sent to Retraite Québec indicating that a contribution is to be paid into an affected component concerned by an amendment provided for under section 58 after the date it becomes effective:
(1)  the global report is neither amended nor replaced;
(2)  for the fiscal year following the date of the actuarial valuation mentioned in section 58 and the first 6 months of the subsequent fiscal year, the contributions provided for under Divisions III and IV that an employer must pay into the affected component of a pension plan resulting from the division of the assets and liabilities of a pension plan correspond to element A in the following formula:
A = B × C/D, where:
“B” represents the total of the contributions provided for under Divisions III and IV that would have been payable into the affected component of the pension plan whose assets and liabilities have been divided;
“C” represents the technical actuarial deficiency of the affected component resulting from the division, as at the date of the actuarial valuation that considers the division for the first time;
“D” corresponds to the total of the technical actuarial deficiencies of the affected components resulting from the division, as at the date of the actuarial valuation that considers the division for the first time;
(3)  for the same period, the contributions provided for under Divisions III and IV that an employer must pay into the affected component of a pension plan resulting from a merger under section 58 correspond to the total of the contributions that would have been payable to the affected components of the pension plans that were merged.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 59.
60. The target degree of solvency of an affected component resulting from the division of the assets and liabilities of a pension plan is determined by increasing, at the dates and to the extent provided for in paragraph 1 to 8 of section 15, the degree of solvency at 31 December 2010 of the corresponding plan that would have resulted from the division of the assets and liabilities of the plan immediately prior to that date, by the same proportion as that by which the assets and liabilities of the plan were in fact divided.
However, the target degree of solvency of an affected component resulting from a division may only be determined in accordance with the first paragraph if the actuary certifies that no element significantly distorts the approximation allowed under that paragraph. In the absence of such a certification, the target degree of solvency of the affected component is determined in accordance with the rules set by Retraite Québec.
The target degree of solvency of the affected component resulting from the merger of all or part of the assets and liabilities of several pension plans into a single plan is determined by increasing, at the dates and to the extent provided for under paragraphs 1 to 8 of section 15, the degree of solvency at 31 December 2010 of the plan that would have resulted from the merger of the plans immediately prior to that date.
The target degree of solvency of an affected component resulting from a merger or division may not, however, exceed 100%.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 60.
61. Notwithstanding section 48 of the Act, a contribution determined under this Regulation bears interest as of the day on which it becomes payable, at the rate of return of the account of the affected component of the pension fund.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 61.
61.1. As of 30 May 2013, the non-active member of a pension plan who, since at least 1 January 2013, is entitled to a deferred pension, may, notwithstanding section 99 of the Act, request payment of his benefits arising from service prior to 1 January 2011 by means of a transfer under section 98 of the Act. The request for payment shall be submitted to the pension committee no later than 30 August 2012.
The pension committee shall inform the members and beneficiaries referred to in the first paragraph in such a manner that they will have a minimum of 60 days to request that their benefits be paid.
O.C. 1090-2012, s. 4.
§ 2.  — Transitional and final provisions
62. Subject to sections 64 and 65, the provisions of this Regulation cease to apply to a pension plan as of the first of the following dates, which must correspond to the date of the end of a fiscal year:
(1)  the date of the first actuarial valuation showing that, not taking into account section 6, the part of the plan that corresponds to its affected component is solvent;
(2)  the date fixed in a writing giving instructions to that effect and sent, by the employer party to the plan, to the pension committee and Retraite Québec prior to the plan’s fiscal year end date.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 62.
63. Where, at the date of the actuarial valuation of a pension plan prior to 31 December 2020, none of the pension plans are still subject to the provisions of this Regulation, with the exception of the provisions of Division VI.1, or to the equivalent provisions of the applicable Ontario legislation, for the purposes of sections 39 and 130 of the Act at the date of the valuation or subsequent valuations, the predetermined portions of the payments determined in accordance with sections 23, 24 and 30 at the time of the last actuarial valuation required under this Regulation, as payable for each of the fiscal years following the date of this valuation, are deemed to be amortization payments, required to amortize a technical actuarial deficiency determined in this actuarial valuation.
The predetermined portion of a payment corresponds to the portion of the payment that the technical actuarial deficiency of the affected component of the pension plan at the date of the last actuarial valuation of the plan required under this Regulation represents of the total of the technical actuarial deficiencies of the affected components of the pension plans at that same date.
For the purposes of the second paragraph, a pension plan to which a contribution determined in accordance with the first paragraph cannot be paid due to the termination of the plan is not taken into account.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 63; O.C. 1090-2012, s. 5.
64. Subject to section 63, for the purpose of sections 39 and 130 of the Act at the date of an actuarial valuation after 30 December 2020, the contributions provided for under subdivision 3 of Division III, determined at the time of the actuarial valuation as at 31 December 2019, are deemed amortization payments required to amortize a technical actuarial deficiency determined at that date.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 64.
65. Notwithstanding the third paragraph of section 41 of the Act, the amount of the monthly payments that are to be paid into a pension plan by an employer party to the plan, as of January 2021 and until the actuarial valuation report as at 31 December 2020 has been sent to Retraite Québec, corresponds to the total of the following amounts:
(1)  the amount of the monthly payments for the amortization payment, determined in accordance with subparagraph c of paragraph 6 of section 44;
(2)  the amount of the monthly payments set for the preceding fiscal year with regard to the other component of the plan.
The contribution thus paid, as well as the contribution that should be paid according to the report, may be adjusted according to the provisions of the third paragraph of section 41 of the Act.
O.C. 856-2011, s. 65.
65.1. The actuarial valuation report for the affected component of a pension plan as at 31 December 2012 as well as the accompanying global report shall be amended or replaced and sent to the Régie no later than 60 days after 9 April 2014.
For the purposes of paragraph 1 of section 44, the actuarial valuation report as at 31 December 2012 for the affected component of a pension plan must indicate for each of the 12 monthly payments of the fiscal year ending 31 December 2013, as well as for each of the following 6 monthly payments, the amount of a monthly payment that corresponds to the portion of $6,666,667 that the technical actuarial deficiency represents, as established on the date provided for in subparagraph 1 or subparagraph 2 of the second paragraph of section 10.
For the purposes of subparagraph 6 of the first paragraph of section 45, the global report must indicate for each of the affected components of a pension plan the amount of each of the monthly payments provided for in the second paragraph, as well as the total of the monthly payments payable.
O.C. 299-2014, s. 18.
65.2. The first monthly amount payable with regard to the affected component of a pension plan after the reports provided for in section 65.1 are sent to the Régie shall be increased by the difference between the monthly amounts paid since the beginning of the 2013 fiscal year and the amounts that should have been paid according to the actuarial valuation report taking into account the amounts, plus the interest provided for in section 48 of the Act.
O.C. 299-2014, s. 18.
65.3. For the purposes of section 47, the first annual statement sent out after 9 April 2014 must contain a description of the changes made with respect to the funding measures provided for in this Regulation.
O.C. 299-2014, s. 18.
66. This Regulation has effect from 31 December 2010, with the exception of paragraph 5 of section 4 which has effect from 17 April 2009.
