CHAPTER III
ACTUARIAL ASSUMPTIONS AND METHODS
(s. 130, par. 3)
3. For the purposes of this Regulation, the expression “CIA Standard” refers to the “Standard of Practice for Determining Pension Commuted Values” confirmed by the board of directors of the Canadian Institute of Actuaries on 15 June 2004.
O.C. 1842-88, s. 3; T.B. 201440, s. 1; T.B. 203097, s. 1.
3.0.1. For the purposes of sections 23, 41.7 and 41.12 of the Act, the actuarial values of the benefits are established using the following actuarial method and assumptions:
Actuarial method
The actuarial method is the “projected benefit method pro rated on service”.
In the case of section 23, if the employee is less than 5 years from retirement under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan or the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services, or less than 3 years from retirement under the Pension Plan of Management Personnel, the pensionable salary of the pension plans involved in the transfer prior to the qualification year under the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services must also be taken into account in determining the average pensionable salary.
Actuarial assumptions
(1)  Mortality rates:
The mortality rates are determined in accordance with the CIA Standard.
(2)  Interest rates:
For fully-indexed and non-indexed benefits:
The interest rates are those determined in accordance with the CIA Standard.
For partially indexed benefits:
The interest rates are determined according to the following formula:
((1 + interest rate for a non-indexed benefit) / (1 + indexing rate for a partially-indexed benefit)) - 1
The result must be rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.25%.
(3)  Indexing rate:
(a)  for a fully-indexed benefit according to the rate of increase in the pension index, the indexing rate is computed in the manner described in the CIA Standard;
(b)  for a benefit indexed according to the excess of the rate of increase in the pension index (PI) over 3% or to half of the rate of increase in the pension index, the indexing rate corresponds respectively to the excess of the indexing rate computed in the manner provided in subparagraph a over 3% or to half the indexing rate computed in the manner provided in that subparagraph.
In order to take into account the inflation rate variations, the following additions are made to the results of effective indexing formulas for actuarial value computation purposes.

(4)  Turnover rate: Nil
(5)  Disability rate: Nil
(6)  Proportion of employees with a spouse at retirement:
Males: 85%
Females: 60%
(7)  Age of spouse at retirement:
— the male spouse of the member is assumed to be 2 years older;
— the female spouse of the member is assumed to be 3 years younger;
(8)  Rate of increase of the MPE:
The annual increase of the maximum pensionable earnings within the meaning of the Québec Pension Plan corresponds to the annual rate of inflation plus 1%.
(9)  Rate of increase of salaries:
The annual increase in salaries corresponds to the annual increase of the MPE, increased by the annual rate of salary increase.

CHAPTER III.1
LIMITS TO ADDED PENSION AMOUNTS
(s. 130, par. 3.1)
T.B. 199294, s. 1.
3.1. For the purposes of section 41.6 of the Act, the sum of the amounts that an employee may add to his or her pension may not exceed the amount “M” which corresponds to the lower of “M1” and “M2”, calculated as follows:
M1 = (F x NL x 2.0% x TM) - CRRR.
M2 = F x N x (1.1% x TM + $230).
T.B. 199294, s. 1.
3.2. The amount added to the employee’s pension shall correspond to the sum of the following amounts:
(1)  the amount “MO” which corresponds to the lower of “MO1” and “MO2”, calculated as follows:
i.  MO1 = [NL x [(F x 2.0% x TM) - (0.7% x (the lesser of TM and MGA))]] - CRRR
ii.  MO2 = F x N x 1.1% x TM
(2)  an amount equal to the difference between the amount “M” determined in section 3.1 and the amount “MO” determined in paragraph 1 of this paragraph, if the person is under 65 years of age when the pension becomes payable. That amount shall be paid until the end of the month during which the pensioner reaches 65 years of age.
T.B. 199294, s. 1.
3.3. For the purposes of sections 3.1 and 3.2,
CRRR represents the amount of the pension credit on the date of retirement and takes into account any applicable actuarial reduction or the increase provided for in section 93 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10);
F represents 1 less the percentage of the actuarial reduction applicable to the employee’s pension;
MGA represents the average Maximum Pensionable Earnings within the meaning of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9);
N represents the number of years and parts of a year added, solely for purposes of eligibility for a pension, under section 41.2 of the Act;
NL represents the minimum between N and 35 less the number of years of service credited to the plan; and
TM represents
(1)  for a pension credit pertaining to a year prior to 1992, the average pensionable salary determined in accordance with subdivision 2.0.1 of Division I of Chapter IV of the Act on the basis of average annualized pensionable salaries that do not take into account the limit provided for in the first paragraph of section 14.1 of the Act;
(2)  for a pension credit pertaining to a year after 1991, the average pensionable salary determined in accordance with that subdivision 2.0.1 of the Act on the basis of average annualized pensionable salaries that take into account the limit provided for in the first paragraph of section 14.1 of the Act.
In respect of an employee who ceases to participate in the plan before 1 January 2010, TM has the meaning assigned by this section as it reads on the date on which the employee ceases to participate.

A pathological condition is prolonged if it will last indefinitely, that is, if it is unlikely that a cure is possible in the present state of medical knowledge.
O.C. 1842-88, s. 4.
CHAPTER V
COMPUTATION OF PENSION
(s. 130, pars. 5, 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3)
O.C. 1842-88, c. V; T.B. 208553, s. 4.
5. In determining the contributory period, the number of contributory days in the period during which an employee contributed and was exempted from contributing during a year, and during which the days and parts of days were otherwise credited with contributions does not include the days and parts of days of absence without pay not credited to the employee.
O.C. 1842-88, s. 5.
5.1. The contributory period of an employee who simultaneously holds, for the first time during a year, more than one employment under the plan is established, for the part of the year where more than one employment is simultaneously held, by retaining a reference employment from among the employments simultaneously held. The reference employment is the employment held by the employee on the day before the day on which more than one employment begin to be held simultaneously or, if none of those employments is held on that preceding day, the employment with the highest annual basic salary.
For each subsequent year, the reference employment retained to establish the contributory period remains the same as long as the employee continues to hold that employment.
The annual basic salary considered is the salary paid or that would have been paid to the employee according to the employment conditions applicable to the employee on the last credited day of the year.
T.B. 208553, s. 5.
5.2. Where, in a year, an employee ceases to hold the reference employment retained pursuant to section 5.1 and, before the end of that year, the employee simultaneously holds again more than one employment under the plan, that employee’s contributory period is established, for the part of the year where more than one employment is simultaneously held, by retaining as new reference employment from among the employments then held the employment held on the day before the day on which more that one employment begin to be simultaneously held or, if none of those employments is held on that preceding day, the employment with the highest annual basic salary.
Where, in a year, an employee ceases to hold the reference employment retained pursuant to section 5.1 and continues to simultaneously hold more than one employment under the plan, that employee’s contributory period is established, for the part of the year that begins on the first day following the day on which the employee ceases to hold the reference employment, by retaining as new reference employment from among the employments held on that first day the employment with the highest annual basic salary.
T.B. 208553, s. 5.
5.3. The daily factor used to compute the annualized pensionable salary of an employee who holds employment under the plan for which the basis of remuneration is 260 days is 260.9.
However, that factor is 260 if the employee is
(1)  a teacher employed by a private institution accredited for the purposes of subsidies under the Act respecting Private Education (chapter E-9.1) whose employment is to teach students as part of the educational services dispensed at preschool, elementary school or secondary school, belonging to one of the categories referred to in paragraphs 1 to 4 of section 1 of that Act and subject, under section 25 of that Act, to the basic school regulation prescribed under the Education Act (chapter I-13.3);
(2)  a teacher employed by a private educational institution within the meaning of the Act respecting private education or employed by a college established by the General and Vocational Colleges Act (chapter C-29) who teaches general or vocational education at the college level; or
(3)  a teacher employed by the Collège Marie de France, the Collège Stanislas or The Priory School inc. and whose employment is to teach students.
T.B. 208553, s. 5.
5.4. The annual basic salary of an employee who holds pensionable employment for which the basis of remuneration is 200 days and who is paid according to an hourly rate is established by multiplying that rate by the maximum number of hours that may be paid in a year. That number is
(1)  800, in the case of a teacher in adult education or vocational training or a teacher hired by the lesson at the secondary level;
(2)  920, in the case of a teacher hired by the lesson at the preschool or elementary level;
(3)  1,000, in the case of a casual supply teacher.

Where the amount of the supplementary benefits has been reduced pursuant to the first paragraph, the limits referred to in that paragraph, established on the date on which the employee retires and under which the reduction is made, are indexed according to the rate of increase in the Pension Index within the meaning of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9) on 1 January of each year during which those benefits are paid to the employee. The first index adjustment of the amount is made proportionately to the number of days for which the benefit was or would have been paid during the year in which the employee ceased to participate in this plan in relation to the total number of days in that year. The supplementary benefits shall be recomputed in the manner prescribed by this Chapter to take the index adjustment into account.

DIVISION I
RATE OF INTEREST ACCORDING TO THE RATES OF RETURN
T.B. 213343, s. 3.
7.18.3. The rate of interest in Division II of Schedule II to the Act, applicable from 1 June of a given year to 31 May of the following year, is determined by computing the geometrical mean of the annual rates of return for the 3-year period ending on 31 December of the year preceding the reference year, according to the formula in Schedule II.
T.B. 213343, s. 3.
7.18.4. The annual rate of return is the rate determined by the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec as of 31 December of each year, taking into account the categories of amounts referred to in subparagraphs 1, 2, 3 and 5 of the first paragraph of section 134 of the Act, for the employees’ contribution fund under the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services, after deduction of the management expenses.
Despite the foregoing, the annual rates of return for the years 2011, 2012 and 2013 where any of the rates is used to compute the geometrical mean referred to in section 7.18.3, are the rates determined by the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec as of 31 December of each of those years, taking into account the categories of amounts referred to in subparagraphs 1, 2 and 4 of the first paragraph of section 127 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), for the employees’ contribution fund under that plan, after deduction of the management expenses.

CHAPTER VIII
ACTUARIAL VALUE
(s. 130, par. 8)
8. The actuarial value of the pension referred to in section 103 of the Act is determined using the following actuarial method and assumptions:
Actuarial method
The actuarial method is the “benefit allocation” method.
Actuarial assumptions
(1)  Mortality rates:
The mortality rates are those determined in accordance with the CIA Standard.
(2)  Interest rates:
For fully-indexed and non-indexed benefits:
The interest rates are those determined in accordance with the CIA Standard.
For partially-indexed benefits:
The interest rates are those determined according to the following formula:
((1 + interest rate for a non-indexed benefit) / (1 + indexing rate for a partially-indexed benefit)) - 1
The result must be rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.25%.
(3)  Indexing rate:
(a)  for a fully-indexed benefit according to the rate of increase in the pension index, the indexing rate is computed in the manner described in the CIA Standard;
(b)  for a benefit indexed according to the excess of the rate of increase in the pension index (PI) over 3% or to half of the rate of increase in the pension index, the indexing rate corresponds respectively to the excess of the indexing rate computed in the manner provided in subparagraph a over 3% or to half the indexing rate computed in the manner provided in that subparagraph.
In order to take into account the inflation rate variations, the following additions are made to the results of effective indexing formulas for actuarial value computation purposes.
