CHAPTER I
SCOPE
1. This pension plan applies, from 1 January 1988, to every peace officer included in the bargaining unit certified as the “Union des agents de la paix en institutions pénales” designated since 21 August 1990 under the name of the Syndicat des agents de la paix en services correctionnels du Québec. It also applies, from 1 January 1991, to every peace officer who would be included therein if he were not, in the course of his duties, temporarily representing the employer in his relations with the employees.
1987, c. 107, s. 1; 1990, c. 87, s. 15.
1.1. The plan also applies from 1 January 1992
(1)  to every person who, on or after that date, holds, in a house of detention, employment as a regular intermediate officer contemplated in the Directive concernant l’ensemble des conditions de travail des cadres intermédiaires oeuvrant en établissement de détention à titre d’agents de la paix à l’exclusion des directeurs des établissements de détention (C.T. 170451 dated 11 April 1989) or in the Directive concernant l’ensemble des conditions de travail des cadres intermédiaires oeuvrant en établissement de détention à titre de directeurs des établissements de détention (C.T. 170452 dated 11 April 1989);
(2)  to every person belonging, subject to the second paragraph, to certain classes or subclasses of employees of the Institut Pinel, as determined by a regulation which may have effect 12 months or less before its adoption. The regulation may also, notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of this plan, except the provisions of Chapter V.1, contain special provisions applicable to the classes or subclasses of employees so determined. The Commission shall, with respect to a person belonging to any such class or subclass of employees, take account of the special provisions applicable to that class or subclass when administering this plan.
Any intermediate officer contemplated by a directive mentioned in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph on 31 December 1991 who, on that date, is a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan may elect to become a member of this plan. Notice to this effect must be received by the Commission before 1 January 1993 and the plan applies to the officer from 1 January 1992. The same applies to any person who, on 31 December 1991, belongs to a class or subclass of employees of the Institut Pinel, as determined by regulation, and who, on that date, is a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan.
1991, c. 77, s. 8; 1992, c. 16, s. 1; 1992, c. 67, s. 13.
2. Every person to whom this plan applies pursuant to section 1 or 1.1 is, for the purposes of this plan, considered to be an employee except if he is a pensioner under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan, the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel, the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers or the pension plans established pursuant to sections 9, 10 and 10.0.1 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10).

3. For the purposes of this plan, an employee is deemed to hold pensionable employment when he holds full-time or part-time employment, which shall include, among other periods, any period during which he is on leave without pay, is eligible for salary insurance benefits and, in the case of a female employee, any period of maternity leave.
For the purposes of this plan, an employee is a member of a pension plan from the first day he holds pensionable employment, and such employee is deemed to remain a member of the plan as long as he remains an employee within the meaning of this plan. However, an employee who, before becoming a member of this plan, has obtained the transfer of past service to this plan is deemed to have become a member of the plan on the date on which the Commission administrative des régimes de retraite et d’assurances received the application for redemption of the past service.
For the purposes of this plan, salary insurance means the salary insurance that is mandatory for the employee but does not include the salary insurance referred to in section 42.1.
1987, c. 107, s. 3; 1995, c. 70, s. 5.
4. An employee who ceases to be a member of this plan and who, within 180 days after the date on which this plan ceased to apply to him, becomes a member of the staff of the Lieutenant-Governor, is a member of this plan.

If the employee is not entitled to such re-assignment, he may be a member of this plan if he applies therefor and if the Government adopts an order to that effect. The order may have effect 12 months or less prior to its adoption.
1990, c. 87, s. 16.
5. Every employee who, following a career re-orientation or after a demotion not contrary to the terms of the collective agreement applicable to the bargaining unit referred to in section 1, remains an employee appointed in accordance with the Public Service Act (chapter F-3.1.1) shall continue to be a member of this plan as long as his appointment is maintained.
1987, c. 107, s. 5; 2000, c. 8, s. 242.

Every intermediate officer who, following a career reorientation pursuant to the Directive concernant la classification et la gestion des emplois de cadres intermédiaires et de leurs titulaires (C.T. 179775 dated 25 March 1992) or a demotion pursuant to section 18 of the Public Service Act (chapter F-3.1.1) and the assignment of a new classification under section 101 of that Act, where, in the latter case, he is assigned employment in an intermediate officer class inferior to the class to which he belonged, or employment that is not in an intermediate officer class and for which the maximum point on the salary scale is equal to or less than the maximum point on the salary scale of the class of employment to which he belonged, shall continue to be a member of this plan as long as he is appointed in accordance with the Public Service Act.
The first paragraph, adapted as required, applies to a territorial director to whom section 5.0.1 applies.
1992, c. 67, s. 15; 1995, c. 70, s. 7; 2000, c. 8, s. 242.
6. A teacher placed on reserve who is a member of the Teachers Pension Plan and who is granted leave without pay to hold employment that is pensionable employment under this plan becomes a member of this plan.
1987, c. 107, s. 6.
7. This plan does not apply to an employee who
(1)  is under 18 years of age;
(2)  becomes an employee on or after 31 December of the year in which the employee attains 69 years of age;
(3)  is a member of the Sûreté du Québec;
(4)  is a Member of the National Assembly;

CHAPTER II
DETERMINATION OF PENSIONABLE SALARY AND YEARS OF SERVICE
DIVISION I
PENSIONABLE SALARY
9. The pensionable salary of an employee is the basic salary paid to him in the course of a calendar year, the salary he would have been entitled to receive during a period of absence covered by salary insurance and, in the case of a female employee, the salary to which she would have been entitled if she had not taken maternity leave.
Unless included by government regulation, bonuses, allowances, compensations or other additional remuneration are not included in the basic salary.
1987, c. 107, s. 9; 1988, c. 82, s. 172; 1991, c. 77, s. 12.
10. (Repealed).
1987, c. 107, s. 10; 1988, c. 82, s. 173.
11. Notwithstanding section 9, any lump sum paid to an employee as an increase or adjustment of the pensionable salary for a previous year shall be included in the pensionable salary for the year in which it is paid.
However, where the lump sum is paid in a year during which no service is credited, it shall be included in the pensionable salary of the last year during which service is credited to him prior to payment of the lump sum.
Any part of the lump sum that is attributable to an increase or adjustment of the salary paid to a pensioner for any period during which he is not an employee for the purposes of this plan even if he holds pensionable employment under the plan shall be excluded.
1987, c. 107, s. 11; 1988, c. 82, s. 174; 1990, c. 32, s. 2.
12. The pensionable salary of an employee who is released for union activities is the salary paid to him by his employer and, where such is the case, any salary paid to him by the Syndicat des agents de la paix en services correctionnels du Québec.
The Syndicat des agents de la paix en services correctionnels du Québec shall pay the employer’s contribution in respect of that employee.
1987, c. 107, s. 12; 1990, c. 87, s. 104.
13. The pensionable salary of an employee in a calendar year shall not be less than the basic salary to which he is entitled in that year, determined in accordance with the conditions of employment applicable to him and taking into account the second paragraph of section 9, with the exception of any lump sum paid subsequently as an increase or adjustment of the pensionable salary for that year.
1987, c. 107, s. 13; 1988, c. 82, s. 175.
14. The pensionable salary of an employee who simultaneously holds more than one pensionable employment in a year is the aggregate of the salary paid to him for all such employments if the total service credited to him in respect of such employments is equal to one year or less.
If the total service credited in respect of the pensionable employments of the employee is reduced by the application of section 16, the pensionable salary of the employee shall not exceed the total of the following amounts:
(1)  the salary attached to the employment held for a proportionately greater number of days in the year or, if such employments were held for proportionately the same number of days, the salary attached to the highest paid employment; and
(2)  the amount by which the employee’s pensionable salary attached to the employment to which subparagraph 1 applies exceeds the annual basic salary paid to him in respect of that employment or that would have been paid to him pursuant to the conditions of employment applicable on the last credited day of the year, multiplied by the service credited to that employee in the course of the year in respect of that employment.
For the purposes of subparagraph 1 of the second paragraph, the salary attached to an employment is the salary defined in section 9, computed on a yearly basis and multiplied by the total service credited.
For the purposes of the third paragraph of section 46.1, the employee is deemed to have held only one employment during the year and his annual basic salary shall be the salary attached to the employment to which subparagraph 1 of the second paragraph applies.
1987, c. 107, s. 14; 1988, c. 82, s. 176; 1991, c. 77, s. 13; 1995, c. 46, s. 2.
14.1. Notwithstanding sections 9 to 14, the pensionable salary of an employee shall not exceed the salary required to arrive at the defined benefit limit applicable for each year under the Income Tax Act (Revised Statutes of Canada, 1985, chapter 1, 5th Supplement).
For the purposes of the first paragraph, the pensionable salary of an employee who, for his service in a calendar year, is credited with less than one year of service is, without exceeding the salary required to arrive at the limit referred to in the first paragraph, equal to the amount obtained by carrying out, in order, the following operations:
(1)  dividing the salary referred to in sections 9 to 14, reduced by the amount established in accordance with the third paragraph of section 46.1, by the service credited; and
(2)  adding to the result of that operation the amount established in accordance with the third paragraph of section 46.1.
For the purposes of the second paragraph, the pensionable salary referred to in the third paragraph of section 46.1 does not take account of the limit provided for in the first paragraph.
1991, c. 77, s. 14; 1992, c. 67, s. 17.
DIVISION II
YEARS OF SERVICE
§ 1.  — General provisions
15. One year of service or part of a year of service shall be credited, for each calendar year, to the employee for service earned in the year if the contributions have been paid and have not been refunded and for any service otherwise credited to the employee under the plan.
Service is credited according to the number of days and parts of a day for which the employee contributed or was exempt and the days and parts of a day otherwise credited to him out of 260. If, in the total number of days and parts of a day, there remains a part of a day that is less than 0.5, the fraction is disregarded or, if the fraction is equal to or greater than 0.5, it is considered as a full day.
1987, c. 107, s. 15; 1997, c. 71, s. 8.
16. If an employee simultaneously holds more than one pensionable employment, he shall be credited with up to one year of service.
However, in no case may an employee be credited, during the year in which he retires, with more service than the number of contributory days between 1 January and the date of his retirement.
1987, c. 107, s. 16.
17. The days and parts of a day of a period during which an employee receives salary insurance benefits, or during which he would receive such benefits were it not for the waiting period prescribed by the salary insurance plan or were he not receiving a disability benefit under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9) or an income replacement indemnity under the Act respecting industrial accidents and occupational diseases (chapter A-3.001), the Automobile Insurance Act (chapter A-25), the Act to promote good citizenship (chapter C-20), the Crime Victims Compensation Act (chapter I-6) or under any other Act, other than an Act of Québec, having the same effect, shall be credited, without contributions, up to three years of service for each period of eligibility.
The days and parts of a day during which a female employee is receiving an income replacement indemnity under section 36 of the Act respecting occupational health and safety (chapter S-2.1) by reason of the exercise of a right granted under section 40, 41 or 46 of the said Act, shall be credited, without contributions, up to two years of service for each period of eligibility.
However, in the case of salary insurance and if it so provides, the insurer shall pay the contributions that would have been paid by the employee; those contributions are credited to the account of the employee.
1987, c. 107, s. 17; 1992, c. 16, s. 2; 2002, c. 30, s. 5.
17.1. A person referred to in the first paragraph of section 17 who, under the salary insurance plan provided for in the applicable conditions of employment, is entitled to salary insurance benefits for a maximum period of two years of service, shall continue to participate in the plan even if the employer has terminated the person’s employment, during the year following the last day of that two-year period, if on that day the person is disabled within the meaning of the applicable salary insurance plan.
During that year, the service credited, without contributions, is the service that would have been credited if the person had held such employment, and the pensionable salary is the salary the person would have received.
However, the service credited to a person who dies, resigns or retires during the year following the two-year period referred to in the first paragraph shall be reduced by the period comprised between the date of the event and the end of that year. The credited service shall also be reduced by the period comprised between the date on which the person is entitled to receive, following an application therefor, the amount provided for in sections 74.1 and 74.8 and the end of that year.
The service credited under this section to a person who returns to pensionable employment during that period is reduced by the period comprised between the first day on which the person holds such employment and the end of the year.
2002, c. 30, s. 6.
18. The days and parts of a day of a maternity leave beginning after 31 December 1988 shall be credited, without contributions, to every female employee up to 130 contributory days if she was an employee to whom this plan applied.
If the female employee holds more than one pensionable employment under the plan in a year, the days and parts of a day of such a leave shall be credited to her before any other service.
1987, c. 107, s. 18; 1988, c. 82, s. 177; 1990, c. 87, s. 17; 1991, c. 77, s. 15.
19. The days and parts of a day of absence that are compensated in full out of accumulated sick leave are credited to the employee only if the contributions have been paid. Such rule applies even in the cases provided for in sections 17, 18 and 32.1.
1987, c. 107, s. 19; 1988, c. 82, s. 178.
20. The days and parts of a day during which an employee is on part-time or full-time leave without pay for a period of not less than 28 consecutive days, in progress on 1 January 1988 or beginning thereafter, shall be credited to the employee who applies therefor, if
(1)  the leave was authorized by his employer;
(2)  he pays the contributions that would have been deducted from the pensionable salary he would have received if he had not been on leave according, as the case may be, to the number of days and parts of a day comprised in the leave out of 260;
(3)  he holds, in the case of a full-time leave without pay, pensionable employment under this plan, the Teachers Pension Plan, the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel or the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, even if, in the last two cases, he is a member of the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers, from the end of the last leave authorized by the employer or, in the case of a part-time leave without pay, from the end of the authorized leave, unless he has died or become disabled or eligible for retirement, or unless, upon his return, he avails himself of a transfer agreement entered into under section 133 or, if the leave is followed by a maternity leave, from the end of the leave or, where such is the case, from the end of a leave without pay immediately following a maternity leave.
For the purposes of subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph, the contributions to be paid by the employee, if any, for the part of the period of leave without pay prior to 1 January 1988 shall be determined according to the rate in force on that date as determined pursuant to this plan.
1987, c. 107, s. 20; 1988, c. 82, s. 179; 2001, c. 31, s. 237.
21. If the application to redeem a leave without pay authorized by the employer and defined in section 20 is not received within six months following the return to work, in the case of a full-time leave without pay, or within six months following the end of the authorized leave, in the case of a part-time leave without pay, the amount required to pay the redemption costs bears interest at the rate provided for in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) on the date of receipt of the application. The interest is computed from the end of the sixth month following the return to work or, in the case of a part-time leave without pay, from the end of the sixth month following the end of the authorized leave until the date of receipt of the application, and is compounded annually.
The employee may, to pay the redemption costs of a period of leave without pay, spread payment thereof over such period and at such intervals as may be determined by the Commission.
1987, c. 107, s. 21; 2002, c. 30, s. 28.
§ 2.  — Special provisions
22. The years and parts of a year of service credited to an employee under the pension fund of officers of education established by Part VIII of the Education Act (Revised Statutes of Québec, 1964, chapter 235), the Teachers Pension Plan, the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel, the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan or the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers shall be credited under this plan, unless the contributions have been refunded to the employee, and subject to the exception under section 23.
The years and parts of a year of service contemplated in section 20 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers (chapter R-9.1), those for which a pension credit is granted under the said Act, the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), the Act respecting the Teachers Pension Plan (chapter R-11) or the Act respecting the Civil Service Superannuation Plan (chapter R-12), and those credited to the employee under the pension plans established pursuant to sections 9 and 10 of the said Act shall be credited under this plan unless the contributions or any other sum paid by the employee into the plan have been refunded to him, and subject to section 23.
1987, c. 107, s. 22; 2001, c. 31, s. 238.
23. The years or parts of a year of service contemplated in the first paragraph of section 22 which are standing to the credit of an employee who, on 31 December 1987, was not a peace officer included in the bargaining unit referred to in section 1 or who, on 31 December 1991, was not an intermediate officer holding employment in a house of detention or a person belonging to a class or subclass of employees determined under subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 1.1, and the years and parts of a year of service referred to in the second paragraph of section 22 shall be credited under this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis as established on the date he begins to pay contributions to this plan. These years and parts of a year of service shall, in that case, be credited, beginning with the latest service, until the actuarial value of the benefits as established in respect of those years and parts of a year of service under this plan reaches the actuarial value of the benefits accrued under the other pension plan, without exceeding the service credited to the employee under that other plan.
The actuarial values of the benefits shall be determined on the basis of actuarial assumptions and methods determined by regulation, which may vary according to the pension plans and benefits concerned.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if years and parts of a year of service contemplated in the first paragraph of section 22 are standing to the credit of the employee under several pension plans, they are deemed, for the purposes of establishing the actuarial value of accrued benefits, to have been transferred to the last pension plan of which the employee was a member before becoming a member of this plan.
1987, c. 107, s. 23; 1991, c. 77, s. 16; 1992, c. 16, s. 3.
24. An employee who, on 1 January 1988, is a peace officer included in the bargaining unit referred to in section 1 but who, on 31 December 1987, was a member of the Civil Service Superannuation Plan or an employee who, on 31 December 1991, was an intermediate officer holding employment in a house of detention or a person belonging to a class or subclass of employees determined under subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 1.1 and who became an employee covered by this plan on 1 January 1992 but who, on 31 December 1991, was a member of the Civil Service Superannuation Plan may be credited under this plan with the years and parts of a year of service for which contributions have been refunded under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, provided he repays the contributions with interest at the rate of 4 %, compounded annually, and computed from the day of the refund.
An employee referred to in the first paragraph who is a former member of the Sûreté du Québec and who became a member of the Civil Service Superannuation Plan before 1 July 1973 is entitled to be credited with the years and parts of a year of service credited to him under the pension plan of the Sûreté du Québec, if his contributions have not been refunded and if no pension or deferred pension is payable to him in respect of those years and parts of a year of service under the said plan. In such a case, the amount of contributions collected under the said plan is deemed to have been paid into this plan from the date of the employee’s application, but only up to the amount of the contributions he would have paid to the Civil Service Superannuation Plan for those years and parts of a year of service.
The amount determined under the first paragraph shall be payable in a lump sum or by instalments in accordance with Schedule I. The payments shall be deducted from the employee’s pensionable salary or, as the case may be, from any pension benefits, except a child’s pension, which becomes payable to him under this plan.
1987, c. 107, s. 24; 1988, c. 82, s. 180; 1990, c. 87, s. 18; 1991, c. 77, s. 17; 1992, c. 16, s. 3; 1992, c. 67, s. 18.
24.1. An employee is entitled to be credited with the years and parts of a year of service during which he was a member of the staff of a minister or of a person referred to in section 124.1 of the Act respecting the National Assembly (chapter A-23.1), provided he has not otherwise been credited with such years and parts of a year or provided his contributions in respect of them have not been refunded to him.
To have all or part of such service credited, the employee must pay to the Commission an amount equal to the contribution he would have been required to pay if he had been a member of this plan. The amount bears interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined for each period in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10). The interest accrues from the midpoint of each year to the date on which the redemption proposal is made by the Commission. Where the employee has only part of his service credited, the most recent service is credited first.
The amount established pursuant to the second paragraph is payable in a lump sum or by instalments spread over the period and payable at the times determined by the Commission. If it is paid by instalments, it bears interest, compounded annually, at the rate provided for in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan on the date on which the application is received, computed from the date on which the redemption proposal expires.
1990, c. 87, s. 19; 1997, c. 50, s. 11; 2002, c. 30, s. 28.
25. An employee who has held casual employment defined by regulation under paragraph 14 of section 134 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) is entitled to be credited with the service earned while in casual employment between 30 June 1973 and 1 January 1988 with an agency or body contemplated by the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan or with an agency or body which, in the opinion of the Commission, would have been contemplated by the plan had it not ceased to exist. For the purposes of this paragraph, any period during which the employee is eligible for salary insurance benefits is counted as a period of service.
The employee must, to be credited with that service, pay to the Commission an amount equal to the contributions he would have been required to pay if he had been a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, with interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined for each period in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan. Interest shall run from the midpoint of each year until the date of receipt of the application. If the employee applies to have only part of that service credited, the most recent service will be credited first. Any pension credit that may have been granted under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan or the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers (chapter R-9.1) in respect of such service is cancelled and the sums paid in respect thereof are refunded with interest. The years and parts of a year credited in respect of such service pursuant to section 23 shall be cancelled.
Any service redeemed under this section shall be credited under this plan to the extent determined under section 39.
1987, c. 107, s. 25; 2002, c. 30, s. 28.
26. The amount established pursuant to section 25 is payable in a lump sum or by instalments spread over the period and payable at the times determined by the Commission. If it is paid by instalments, it bears interest, compounded annually, at the rate provided for in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) on the date on which the application is received, computed from the date on which the redemption proposal made by the Commission expires.
1987, c. 107, s. 26; 1990, c. 87, s. 20; 2002, c. 30, s. 28.
27. The days and parts of a day during which an employee, while holding pensionable employment under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan even if, while in that employment, he was a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel or the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers, was on part-time or full-time leave without pay for a period of not less than 28 consecutive days, which was in progress on 1 July 1983 or which began thereafter, shall be credited, provided the period has not been otherwise credited under this plan, to the employee who applies therefor, if
(1)  the leave was authorized by his employer;
(2)  he pays the contributions that would have been deducted under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan from the pensionable salary he would have received had he not been on leave according, as the case may be, to the number of days and parts of a day comprised in the leave out of the number of contributory days in the year, namely 200 or 260, according to the basis of remuneration;
(3)  he held, in the case of a full-time leave without pay, pensionable employment under this plan, the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel or the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, even if, in the last two cases, he was a member of the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers from the end of the last leave authorized by the employer or, in the case of a part-time leave without pay, from the end of the authorized leave, unless he became disabled, or, if the leave was followed by a maternity leave, from the end of the leave or, where such is the case, from the end of a leave without pay immediately following a maternity leave.
The service relating to any period of leave without pay redeemed under this section shall be credited under this plan to the extent determined under section 39.
1987, c. 107, s. 27; 1988, c. 82, s. 181; 2001, c. 31, s. 239.
28. If the application for the redemption of a leave without pay authorized by the employer and referred to in section 27 is not received within six months following the return to work in the case of a full-time leave without pay, or within six months following the end of the authorized leave in the case of a part-time leave without pay, the first paragraph of section 21 applies.
The employee may, to pay the redemption costs of a leave without pay, spread payment thereof over such period and at such intervals as may be determined by the Commission.
1987, c. 107, s. 28.
29. The days during which an employee, while holding pensionable employment under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, even if, while holding such employment, he was a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, was on leave without pay which ended before 1 July 1983, but for any period subsequent to 1 July 1976, shall be credited, provided the leave has not been otherwise credited under this plan, to the employee who applies therefor, if
(1)  the leave was authorized by his employer;
(2)  he pays an amount equal to the amount of contributions that would have been deducted under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, had he not been on leave, from the pensionable salary he was receiving at the time his leave began;
(3)  he held pensionable employment under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, even if, while in that employment, he was a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, from the end of his leave without pay, unless he became disabled.
The amount required for those days to be credited is payable in a lump sum or by instalments spread over the period and payable at the times determined by the Commission. If the application for redemption is made after the end of the year in which the employee was on leave without pay, the amount bears interest at 8.5 %, compounded annually, computed from the end of the leave.
The service relating to a period of leave without pay redeemed under this section shall be credited under this plan to the extent determined under section 39.
1987, c. 107, s. 29; 1988, c. 82, s. 182; 1990, c. 87, s. 21; 1992, c. 67, s. 19.
30. The days during which an employee, while holding pensionable employment under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan even if, while in that employment, he was a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, was on leave without pay between 12 June 1969 and 1 July 1976, shall be credited, provided the leave has not been otherwise credited under this plan, to the employee who applies therefor, if
(1)  the leave was authorized by his employer;
(2)  he pays an amount computed in accordance with subparagraph 3 of the first paragraph of section 112.1 of the Act respecting the Civil Service Superannuation Plan (chapter R-12);
(3)  he held pensionable employment under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, even if, while in that employment, he was a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, from the end of his leave without pay.
The amount required for those days to be credited is payable in a lump sum or by instalments spread over the period and payable at the times determined by the Commission. Any amount paid by instalments bears interest, compounded annually, at the rate provided for in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) in force on the date the application is received and computed from the date on which the redemption proposal made by the Commission expires.
The service relating to a period of leave without pay redeemed under this section shall be credited under this plan to the extent determined under section 39.
1987, c. 107, s. 30; 1990, c. 87, s. 22; 1992, c. 67, s. 20; 1997, c. 50, s. 12; 2002, c. 30, s. 7.
31. Every female employee may be credited, without contributions, with the days and parts of a day of a maternity leave in progress on 1 July 1983 or which began thereafter, up to 130 contributory days, if, at the time the leave began, she was holding pensionable employment under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, even if, while holding such employment, she was a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel or the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers, provided the leave has not been otherwise credited under this plan.
The service relating to the days and parts of a day of a maternity leave redeemed under this section shall be credited under this plan to the extent determined under section 39.
1987, c. 107, s. 31; 2001, c. 31, s. 240.
32. Every female employee who was granted a maternity leave while she was a member of the pension fund of officers of education established by Part VIII of the Education Act (Revised Statutes of Québec, 1964, chapter 235) or while she was a teacher within the meaning of the Teachers Pension Plan may be credited, without contributions and up to 90 contributory days, with the days of a maternity leave which was in progress on 1 July 1965 or which began after that date but ended before 1 July 1976, provided the leave has not been otherwise credited under this plan, and provided the 90-day period allows the employee to complete 95 % or more of the school year in which she was granted the maternity leave.
Every female employee who was granted a maternity leave may be credited, without contributions and up to 120 contributory days, with the days of the maternity leave which was in progress on 1 July 1976 or which began after that date but ended before 1 July 1983, provided the leave has not been otherwise credited under this plan.
To be credited with the days of the maternity leave, the employee referred to in the first or second paragraph is required to have contributed to the pension fund of officers of education established by Part VIII of the Education Act, the Teachers Pension Plan, the Civil Service Superannuation Plan or the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan within 12 months preceding the beginning of the maternity leave, and to have again contributed to the Teachers Pension Plan, the Civil Service Superannuation Plan or the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan within the two years following the year in which the maternity leave ended, even if, in the last two cases, the employee referred to in the first paragraph was not a teacher within the meaning of the Teachers Pension Plan at the time she again contributed.
The contributions paid by the employee to redeem the maternity leave pursuant to the provisions relating to the redemption of a leave without pay are refunded without interest if the leave was redeemed while she was a member of the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, and the sums paid by the employee are refunded with interest if the leave was redeemed while she was a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan. However, if the period redeemed in respect of a maternity leave which ended before 1 July 1976 exceeds 100 days, the maternity leave cannot be credited without contributions and the contributions or, as the case may be, the sums paid by the employee cannot be refunded. If the period redeemed in respect of a maternity leave which was in progress on 1 July 1976 or which began after that date exceeds the period credited pursuant to this section, the balance of the redeemed period remains credited to the account of the employee, even if it is less than 30 days.
The service relating to the days of a maternity leave redeemed under this section shall be credited under this plan to the extent determined under section 39.
1987, c. 107, s. 32; 1990, c. 87, s. 23; 1991, c. 14, s. 3.
32.1. Every female employee included in the bargaining unit contemplated in section 1 may be credited, without contributions and up to 130 contributory days, with the days and parts of a day of a maternity leave in progress on 1 January 1988 or having begun on 31 December 1988, at the latest.
1988, c. 82, s. 183.
33. Any female employee who, while she was a member of the pension fund of officers of education established by Part VIII of the Education Act (Revised Statutes of Québec, 1964, chapter 235) or while she was a teacher within the meaning of the Teachers Pension Plan, ceased to be an employee for the purposes of her pension plan by reason of marriage, pregnancy or adoption may, provided, in the last case, the adoption was subsequently recognized for legal purposes by a judgment, be credited with all or part of her years of teaching prior to 1 January 1968 for which she obtained a refund of contributions, if the marriage, pregnancy or adoption occurred in the 12 months preceding or in the 24 months following the date on which she ceased to be an employee for the purposes of her plan.
To be credited with such years and parts of a year, the employee must pay an amount of $1 128 per year. That amount shall be increased by an amount equal to 1.65 % of her basic pensionable salary, computed on an annual basis, on the date of receipt of her application. However, if the employee held part-time employment on that date, the basic pensionable salary which must be used is the salary she would have received if she had held that employment full time. Any pension credit that may have been granted under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) in respect of any or several years or parts of a year are cancelled, and the sums paid to cover the cost thereof are refunded with interest. The years and parts of a year credited in respect of such service pursuant to section 23 shall be cancelled.
The amount required for these years and parts of a year to be credited is payable in a lump sum or by instalments spread over the period and payable at the times determined by the Commission. If it is paid by instalments, it bears interest, compounded annually, at the rate provided for in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan on the date on which the application is received, computed from the date on which the redemption proposal made by the Commission expires.
The service relating to the years and parts of a year of teaching redeemed under this section shall be credited under this plan to the extent determined under section 39.
1987, c. 107, s. 33; 1990, c. 87, s. 24; 2002, c. 30, s. 28.
34. The amount of $1 128 provided for in the second paragraph of section 33 shall be adjusted, on 31 December each year, according to the rate of interest established pursuant to section 217 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) and in force on that date.
1987, c. 107, s. 34.
35. Every employee is entitled to be credited for pension purposes with the years and parts of a year during which he contributed to a pension plan which applied before 1 January 1992 to a Member of the National Assembly and in respect of which he obtained a refund of his contributions, except if he has already exercised a right of redemption in respect of such years and parts of a year under a pension plan other than this plan.
The employee shall pay to the Commission, for each of those years and parts of a year, an amount equal to the amount obtained by applying the rate of contribution applicable to each of those years under the pension plan of which he was a member after having been a Member of the National Assembly, if the plan is a pension plan referred to in section 22 or, if he was not a member of any of the said plans, pursuant to this plan, to the lesser of the following amounts:
(1)  the indemnity he received as a Member; and
(2)  the pensionable salary he was or is entitled to receive in the first year in which, after having been a Member of the National Assembly, he was a member of a pension plan referred to in section 22 or, as the case may be, is a member of this pension plan.
The pension shall be based solely on the pensionable salary he is receiving or was receiving while he was or is a member of any of the pension plans referred to in the second paragraph.
The service relating to the years and parts of a year redeemed under this section shall be credited under this plan to the extent determined under section 39.
1987, c. 107, s. 35; 1988, c. 82, s. 184; 1993, c. 41, s. 5.
36. The employee shall pay the amount established under section 35 in a single payment. Where he redeems two years of service or more, he may pay by instalments; in that case, the amount to be paid by him shall bear interest from the date on which the redemption proposal made by the Commission expires, at the rate of 5 %, compounded annually, and may be apportioned in equal and consecutive annual instalments over a period not exceeding five years.
1987, c. 107, s. 36; 1990, c. 87, s. 25.
37. An employee who, before 1 January 1987, has not paid contributions to the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan or the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers but who began to pay contributions to any of those plans or into the Pension Plan of Management Personnel after that date may, if he applies therefor within 12 months of the date on which he began to pay contributions into any of those plans, be credited with his years and parts of a year of active service in the regular Canadian Forces or the forces levied by Canada in wartime within the meaning of the Canadian Forces Superannuation Act (Revised Statutes of Canada, 1985, chapter C-17), provided he is not receiving pension benefits under the said Act. An employee who never paid contributions to any of those plans may purchase those years and parts of a year of active service by applying therefor within 12 months of the date on which he begins to pay contributions to this plan.
The employee shall pay, without interest, for each of those years and parts of a year of active service, an amount equal to the deductions that would have been made from his salary in the regular Canadian Forces at the rate of contribution in force under this plan on the date he becomes a member of this plan. The amount is payable in the manner prescribed in the third paragraph of section 24.
The service relating to the years and parts of a year of active service redeemed under this section shall be credited under this plan to the extent determined under section 39.
1987, c. 107, s. 37; 2001, c. 31, s. 241.
38. Any employee to whom the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers (chapter R-9.1) has never applied and who meets the requirements of sections 3 and 4 of the said Act may avail himself of section 13 of the said Act, subject to the terms and conditions provided for in sections 15 to 17 of the said Act, as if he were a member of the said pension plan.
In that case, the years and parts of a year of service redeemed under the first paragraph and, as the case may be, any other year of teaching within the meaning of the second paragraph of section 20 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers shall be credited under this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis as established on the date of receipt of the employee’s application, in accordance with section 23.
1987, c. 107, s. 38.
39. The years and parts of a year of service referred to in sections 25, 27, 29 to 33, 35 and 37 shall be credited in full under this plan if, on 31 December 1987, the employee was a peace officer included in the bargaining unit referred to in section 1 and if, on 1 January 1988, he has become an employee within the meaning of this plan or if, on 31 December 1991, he was an intermediate officer holding employment in a house of detention or a person belonging to a class or subclass of employees determined under subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 1.1 and if, on 1 January 1992, he became an employee within the meaning of this plan.
In all other cases, the years and parts of a year of service shall be credited under this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis as established pursuant to section 23 and used for crediting the years and parts of a year of service referred to in the first paragraph of section 22. However, if section 23 was not applicable, the actuarial values of the benefits shall be established, on the date the employee becomes a member of this plan, on the basis of the actuarial assumptions and methods that would have been used had the employee been a member of the Civil Service Superannuation Plan before he became a member of this plan. Those years and parts of a year of service are, in that case, credited in accordance with section 23.
1987, c. 107, s. 39; 1991, c. 77, s. 18; 1992, c. 16, s. 3.
40. An employee may be credited with all or part of the years and parts of a year of service not credited under this plan owing to the application of section 23 and the second paragraph of sections 38 and 39 by paying to the Commission the difference between the actuarial values of the benefits resulting from those years and parts of a year of service. The amount to be paid by the employee shall bear interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined for each period in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) and running from the date on which the actuarial values are established to the date of the redemption proposal made by the Commission.
The amount determined under the first paragraph is payable in a lump sum or by instalments spread over the period and payable at the times determined by the Commission. If it is paid by instalments, it bears interest, compounded annually, at the rate provided for in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan on the date on which the application is received, computed from the date on which the redemption proposal expires.
1987, c. 107, s. 40; 1990, c. 87, s. 26; 2002, c. 30, s. 28.
41. The Commission shall refund to an employee whose years and parts of a year of service credited under this plan have been transferred to another pension plan on an actuarially equivalent basis, the amount, if any, by which the total amount of contributions accumulated under sections 71 to 73 exceeds the actuarial value of the benefits accrued under that other pension plan.
1987, c. 107, s. 41.
§ 3.  — Redemption of a paid training period
2002, c. 30, s. 8.
41.1. An employee is entitled to pension credit, computed in relation to the years or parts of a year of past service as a paid trainee, by counting such years or parts of a year under the plan.
The categories or subcategories of employees and the rules, terms and conditions applicable to have years or parts of a year of past service as a paid trainee counted, the years or parts of a year of service which may be counted and their number, which may vary according to the category and subcategory of employees, shall be determined by regulation under subparagraph 11.3 of the first paragraph of section 134 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10).
2002, c. 30, s. 8.
41.2. The years and parts of a year of service for which pension credit is granted under this subdivision shall be added, solely for the purposes of eligibility for a pension, to the years of service credited to an employee under section 15.
2002, c. 30, s. 8.
41.3. Sections 88, 90 to 93, the second paragraph of section 95 and sections 96 and 97 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) shall apply to the pension credit obtained under section 41.1, with the necessary modifications.
2002, c. 30, s. 8.
41.4. The amount that an employee must pay to be entitled to pension credit shall be determined according to the tariff of premiums appearing in Schedule IV to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10).
The amounts paid by an employee to acquire pension credit shall be paid into the consolidated revenue fund.
2002, c. 30, s. 8.
41.5. The years and parts of a year of service for which pension credit is granted shall be added to the years of service credited to the employee to determine, in case of death, the entitlement of the spouse to a pension even if the employee died before completing all the payments computed in accordance with section 96 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10).
2002, c. 30, s. 8.
41.6. Sections 73.1 to 73.3 and 73.5 to 73.7 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) shall apply, with the necessary modifications, to an employee who has acquired pension credit under this subdivision. Any reference to a provision of that Act is a reference to the corresponding provision of this Act.
The pension amounts added under the first paragraph must be within the limits established by regulation. If not, the amounts shall be adjusted in the manner prescribed by the regulation.
2002, c. 30, s. 8.
CHAPTER III
EMPLOYEE AND EMPLOYER CONTRIBUTIONS
42. The employer shall, except for a pensioner who, even if he holds pensionable employment, is not an employee for the purposes of this plan, and except for an employee referred to in section 119, from, in the latter case, the date on which the employee’s election not to participate applies, withhold each year from the pensionable salary paid to each employee and, if applicable, from a lump sum paid to a pensioner pursuant to section 11, an amount equal to the contribution rate established by regulation under section 128, from that part of the pensionable salary which exceeds 25 % of the lesser of the pensionable salary and the maximum pensionable earnings within the meaning of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9).
The supplementary contribution rate established by regulation under the second paragraph of section 66.7 shall be added to the contribution rate referred to in the first paragraph.
However, the employer shall, in respect of an employee referred to in section 5, make the annual deduction provided for in the first and second paragraphs by adding 2 % to the rate referred to in the first paragraph; the annual deduction may not exceed 9 % of the pensionable salary paid to the employee.
For the purposes of this section, the maximum pensionable earnings is established according to the number of days and parts of a day for which the employee or, as the case may be, the pensioner paid or was exempt from contributions, out of the number of contributory days in a year.
This section applies only within the limits authorized under the Income Tax Act (Revised Statutes of Canada, 1985, chapter 1, 5th Supplement).

CHAPTER IV
PENSION BENEFITS
DIVISION I
EMPLOYEE BENEFITS
§ 1.  — Entitlement to the pension
44. For the purposes of this plan, the normal retirement age is 65. However, an employee who ceases to participate in the plan is entitled to a pension if the employee
(1)  (subparagraph repealed);
(2)  has at least 32 years of service;
(3)  has at least 30 years of service and is not under 50 years of age;
(4)  (subparagraph repealed);
(5)  has become unable to perform his regular duties by reason of a physical or mental disability defined by regulation;
(6)  is not under 60 years of age;
(7)  has at least 25 years of service.
The pension shall be granted on the date on which the employee retires in accordance with section 53.
1987, c. 107, s. 44; 1997, c. 71, s. 9; 2002, c. 30, s. 10.
§ 2.  — Computation of the pension
45. The annual amount of an employee’s pension, on the date on which the employee ceases to participate in the plan, is equal to the total of the following amounts:
(1)  the amount obtained by multiplying his average pensionable salary by 2.1875% per year of service credited before 1 January 1992;
(2)  the amount obtained by multiplying the average pensionable salary by 2% per year of service credited after 31 December 1991.
1987, c. 107, s. 45; 1991, c. 77, s. 19; 1996, c. 53, s. 3; 1997, c. 71, s. 10.
45.1. If the employee is under 65 years of age, the annual amount of pension is increased by an amount equal to 0.1875% of the employee’s average pensionable salary per year of service credited after 31 December 1991.
1996, c. 53, s. 4.
46. For the purposes of paragraph 1 of section 45, the average pensionable salary is obtained by performing, in order, the following operations:
(1)  dividing the pensionable salary for each year, not taking into account the limit imposed by section 14.1, by the credited service, except service credited under section 98;
(2)  selecting among the highest salaries resulting from the division, such number of salaries as may be needed to obtain a sum of five contributory periods corresponding to the years selected or, if the sum is less than five, the aggregate of such salaries;
(3)  multiplying each salary so selected for each year by the corresponding contributory period;
(4)  dividing the aggregate of the salaries resulting from the multiplication by the aggregate of the corresponding contributory periods.
For the purposes of paragraph 2 of section 45 and section 45.1, the average pensionable salary is obtained by performing, in order, the following operations:
(1)  dividing the pensionable salary for each year by the service credited, except service credited under section 98;
(2)  applying subparagraphs 2 to 4 of the first paragraph.
For the purposes of subparagraph 1 of the first and second paragraphs, all the years and parts of a year of service credited must be counted and service credited pursuant to sections 18, 31, 32 and 32.1 shall not be counted in respect of service credited prior to 1 January 1992.
A contributory period is, for the purposes of this subdivision, the number of contributory days in the period during which the employee has contributed and been exempt in a year and during which days and parts of a day have otherwise been credited to him with contributions, except the days and parts of a day determined by regulation, out of 260. The first contributory period of a new employee begins on the first day for which service is credited to him.
1987, c. 107, s. 46; 1988, c. 82, s. 186; 1991, c. 77, s. 20; 1996, c. 53, s. 5.
46.1. For the purposes of section 46, any lump sum paid by way of an increase in or adjustment to the pensionable salary for a previous year and any amount paid during the year in which the employee ceases to be a member of this plan and pertaining to the pensionable salary earned in the previous year shall be excluded from the salary referred to in subparagraphs 1 and 3 of the first paragraph of section 46 and from the salary referred to in the corresponding subparagraphs of the second paragraph of that section.
However, such lump sums or amounts shall be added to the result obtained under those subparagraphs for the purposes of subparagraphs 2 and 4 of the first paragraph of section 46 and the corresponding subparagraphs of the second paragraph of that section.
The amounts referred to in the first and second paragraphs correspond, for the years and parts of a year of service credited after 31 December 1989, to the amount by which the pensionable salary of the employee exceeds the annual basic salary paid to him or, as the case may be, that would have been paid to him under the conditions of employment applicable on the last credited day of the year, multiplied by the service credited to that employee in the course of the year or, if he holds more than one pensionable employment in the course of a year, to the amount by which his pensionable salary exceeds the total annual basic salary for each employment multiplied by the credited service pertaining to each employment.
The service credited under section 98 and, in respect of the years 1990 and 1991, the service credited under sections 18 and 31, shall not be counted for the purposes of the third paragraph.
1992, c. 67, s. 21.
47. (Repealed).
1987, c. 107, s. 47; 1988, c. 82, s. 187; 1991, c. 77, s. 21; 1992, c. 67, s. 22.
48. For the purposes of establishing the average pensionable salary, the pensionable salary and the contributory periods shall be determined according to the years and parts of a year of service credited to the employee under a pension plan mentioned in section 22 and according to the basis of remuneration applicable to each of those years, namely 200 or 260. The same rule applies for the purposes of section 51 and sections 49, 56, 59 and 102 to the extent that, in the last cases, they refer to section 51.
However, the pensionable salary and the contributory periods of all the years and parts of a year of service credited under this plan on the basis of actuarially equivalent benefits, and those of any years and parts of a year preceding them, are excluded from the average pensionable salary.
1987, c. 107, s. 48; 1990, c. 87, s. 27.
49. For the purposes of paragraph 1 of section 45, the average pensionable salary may in no case be less than $7,000.
1987, c. 107, s. 49; 1992, c. 67, s. 23.
50. The pension granted under subparagraph 7 of the first paragraph of section 44 is reduced, for its duration, by 1/3 of 1% per month, computed for each month falling between the date on which the pension is granted to the employee and the first date on which the pension would otherwise have been granted to the employee, at the time the employee ceased to participate in the plan, under subparagraph 2, 3 or 6 of the first paragraph of the said section.
1987, c. 107, s. 50; 1997, c. 71, s. 11; 2002, c. 30, s. 11.
51. From the month following the pensioner’s sixty-fifth birthday or, as the case may be, from the month following the date on which the employee retires, if that date is after his sixty-fifth birthday, the pension is reduced as follows:
(1)  for that part of the pension pertaining to the years of service credited before 1 January 1992, by the amount obtained by multiplying
(a)  0.78125%;
(b)  the number of years of service credited between 31 December 1965 and 1 January 1992 but, in the case of the death of the person referred to in section 57, up to the number of years of service used in computing the spouse’s and the child’s pensions; and
(c)  that part of the average pensionable salary which does not exceed the average maximum pensionable earnings, within the meaning of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9), in respect of all such last years of service as are needed to attain a sum of five corresponding contributory periods or, if the sum is less than five, in respect of all the years;
(2)  for that part of the pension pertaining to the years of service credited after 31 December 1991, by the amount obtained by adding the following amounts:
(a)  the amount obtained by multiplying
i.  0.5%;
ii.  the number of years of service credited after 31 December 1991 but, in the case of the death of the person referred to in section 57, up to the number of years of service used in computing the spouse’s and the child’s pensions; and
iii.  that part of the average pensionable salary which does not exceed the average maximum pensionable earnings, within the meaning of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan, in respect of all such last years of service as are needed to attain a sum of five corresponding contributory periods or, if the sum is less than five, in respect of all the years; and
(b)  the amount added to the pension under section 45.1, taking into account the index adjustment that applied thereto.
In computing the average maximum pensionable earnings, each amount of maximum pensionable earnings concerned shall be computed on the basis of the ratio established for computing each contributory period.
However, where the employee receives a pension by reason of physical or mental disability under this plan, the reduction provided for in the first paragraph applies from the month in which the disability pension granted under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan or under an equivalent plan within the meaning of section 1 of the said Act is payable, or from the month following the date on which the employee retires if such a disability pension is payable before the pension granted under this plan.
Where the pension is reduced under section 56.1, the amount obtained under subparagraph 1 and the amount obtained under subparagraph a of subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph are reduced by 2%.
However, where the employee continues to hold pensionable employment under the plan after 30 December of the year in which the employee attains 69 years of age, the reduction provided for in the first paragraph applies from the month following that date as if the employee had retired.
1987, c. 107, s. 51; 1993, c. 41, s. 6; 1995, c. 70, s. 10; 1996, c. 53, s. 6; 1997, c. 71, s. 12.
52. In no case may a pension be reduced as provided in section 51 by an amount greater than the basic amount of the pension paid under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9) or under a similar plan within the meaning of section 1 of that Act to which the employee is or would be entitled upon retiring from regular employment.
1987, c. 107, s. 52; 1991, c. 14, s. 4.
§ 2.1.  — Maximum benefits
1996, c. 53, s. 7.
52.1. Pension amounts computed under subdivision 2 of this division including those provided for in Division III.2 and additional benefits computed pursuant to Division III.1 shall not exceed the limits authorized under the Income Tax Act (Revised Statutes of Canada, 1985, chapter 1, 5th Supplement).
1996, c. 53, s. 7; 2002, c. 30, s. 12.
§ 3.  — Payment of pension benefits
53. The pension benefits become payable to the employee who is entitled thereto from the day the employee retires.
An employee is presumed to retire on the day after the day on which the employee ceases to participate in the plan. However, if the employee continues to hold pensionable employment under the plan after 30 December of the year in which the employee attains 69 years of age, the day after the day on which the employee ceases to hold such employment is the day on which the employee retires.
1987, c. 107, s. 53; 1991, c. 77, s. 22; 1997, c. 71, s. 13.
54. The pension shall be paid to the pensioner for life.
1987, c. 107, s. 54.
55. The spouse or, if there is no spouse, the successors of a deceased pensioner shall be entitled to receive, until the first day of the month following the pensioner’s death, the pension pertaining to the month of death that he would have received or would otherwise have received.
1987, c. 107, s. 55; 1992, c. 67, s. 24; 1995, c. 46, s. 31; 1999, c. 73, s. 2.
DIVISION II
SPOUSE AND CHILDREN BENEFITS
56. From the day the payment of the pension of a pensioner ceases by reason of death or, as the case may be, from the day of the death of an employee entitled a pension, his spouse shall be entitled to receive as pension for life one-half of the pension the pensioner was receiving or, as the case may be, would otherwise have been entitled to receive, or which the employee would have been entitled to receive,
(1)  reduced as in section 51, from the month following the death, even if the pensioner or employee dies before 65 years of age;
(2)  not reduced as in section 51 if, at the time of death of the pensioner or employee, his spouse is not entitled to a pension under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9).
1987, c. 107, s. 56; 1988, c. 82, s. 188.
56.1. The employee may, in applying for a pension, elect to receive a pension with a 2% reduction for the duration of the payment in order to enable his spouse to receive, instead of the pension provided for in section 56, a pension equal to 60% of the reduced pension to which the employee will be entitled. The employee who is entitled to a deferred pension may also make that election within the 90 days preceding the date of his sixty-fifth birthday. However, the 2% reduction does not apply to the amount added, where applicable, to the annual amount of pension pursuant to section 45.1.
The election becomes irrevocable as soon as payment of the employee’s pension begins, even where no spouse is entitled to a pension.
1996, c. 53, s. 8.
57. If a person who, on 31 December 1987, was a peace officer included in the bargaining unit referred to in section 1 who, on 1 January 1988, became a member of this plan dies before becoming entitled to a pension or before a pension under section 63 or 64 becomes payable to him, his spouse shall be entitled to receive as pension for life, from the time of the person’s death, one-half of the pension that would have been payable to him in respect of the years or parts of a year during which he was a member of the pension fund established by Part VIII of the Education Act (Revised Statutes of Québec, 1964, chapter 235), the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan and in respect of the years and parts of a year credited under this plan pursuant to the first paragraph of section 24 and sections 32 and 33. However, the pension shall be computed on the basis of the average pensionable salary determined under sections 46 to 48.
Where applicable, the pension shall be reduced as in section 56.
The first and second paragraphs shall apply to the spouse of a person who, on 31 December 1991, was an intermediate officer holding employment in a house of detention or a person belonging to a class or subclass of employees determined under subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 1.1 and who, on 1 January 1992, became a member of this plan, if the person dies before becoming entitled to a pension or before the pension under section 63 or 64 becomes payable to him.
1987, c. 107, s. 57; 1991, c. 77, s. 23; 1992, c. 16, s. 3.
58. For the purposes of the plan, the spouse is the person who is married to the employee or pensioner, as the case may be, or, in the case of an unmarried employee or pensioner, the person of the opposite or the same sex who was unmarried at the time of the death of the employee or pensioner and who had been living in a conjugal relationship with the employee or pensioner for a period of not less than three years immediately prior to the death of the employee or pensioner and had been publicly represented as the employee’s or pensioner’s spouse by the employee or pensioner or who, during the year preceding the employee’s or pensioner’s death, was living in a conjugal relationship with the employee or pensioner while one of the following situations occurred:
(1)  a child was or is to be born of their union;
(2)  they adopted a child together; or
(3)  one of them adopted a child of the other.
1987, c. 107, s. 58; 1988, c. 82, s. 189; 1999, c. 14, s. 21; 2000, c. 32, s. 5.
59. Each child of a pensioner or employee referred to in section 56 or, as the case may be, of a person referred to in section 57, who is unmarried and under 18 years of age or under 21 years of age if he is a full-time student in an educational institution designated in Schedule I to the Act respecting the Teachers Pension Plan (chapter R-11) or in any other institution designated by regulation, is entitled to receive, as pension,
(1)  if a pension is paid to the spouse, 10 % of the pension used as the basis for computing the spouse’s pension, reduced as in section 51;
(2)  if there is no spouse entitled to a pension, 20 % of the pension that would have been used as the basis for computing the spouse’s pension, reduced as in section 51;
(3)  if the spouse dies while receiving a pension, 20 % of the pension used as the basis for computing the spouse’s pension and adjusted from the death of the pensioner or employee referred to in section 56 or, as the case may be, of the person referred to in section 57, reduced as in section 51.
However, where there are more than four children, an amount representing 10 % or 20 % of the pension, as the case may be, multiplied by 4, is divided equally among the children.
1987, c. 107, s. 59; 1990, c. 5, s. 10.
60. The pension granted to a child is paid from the day the spouse’s pension is payable or, if there is no spouse entitled to a pension, from the day it would have been payable. If the spouse dies, the new pension granted to the child is paid from the month following the death of the spouse.
The pension granted to a child under 18 years of age must be paid to the person whose dependent he is.
1987, c. 107, s. 60; 1990, c. 5, s. 11.
61. The pension granted to the spouse and children shall run until the first day of the month following the date the beneficiary ceases to be entitled to it.
1987, c. 107, s. 61.
DIVISION III
DEFERRED PENSION
62. An employee who, after two years of credited service and before becoming entitled to a pension, ceases to be a member of this plan is entitled to a deferred pension only, unless he transfers his years and parts of a year of service to another pension plan.
In case of death before the deferred pension becomes payable, the contributions shall, subject to section 74, be refunded to his spouse or, if he has no spouse, to his successors.
1987, c. 107, s. 62; 1990, c. 5, s. 12; 1995, c. 46, s. 31; 2002, c. 30, s. 13.
63. A deferred pension is payable, as the case may be,
(1)  from 65 years of age;
(2)  from the time the employee is physically or mentally disabled, as defined by regulation;
(3)  from the time he begins to receive the retirement pension acquired as a Member of the National Assembly, if he became a Member before 1 January 1992.
1987, c. 107, s. 63; 1992, c. 9, s. 3; 1993, c. 41, s. 7.
64. An employee who becomes a Member of the National Assembly before a pension or deferred pension is granted to him is entitled to such pension for the years and parts of a year of service credited to him under this plan if they have not been transferred to another pension plan, if he acquires entitlement to a retirement pension as a Member of the National Assembly and if he repays all contributions refunded to him.
Where the Member became a Member before 1 January 1992, the pension shall be payable from the time he begins to receive the retirement pension acquired as a Member of the National Assembly.
1987, c. 107, s. 64; 1992, c. 9, s. 4; 1993, c. 41, s. 8.
65. Any deferred pension is cancelled if the employee again becomes a member of this plan, and the years and parts of a year of service he accumulates are added to those already credited.
1987, c. 107, s. 65.
66. The annual amount of the deferred pension is computed in the same manner as the pension and is paid to the pensioner for life.
1987, c. 107, s. 66.
DIVISION III.1
ADDITIONAL BENEFIT
1996, c. 53, s. 10.
66.1. The persons who belong to a category or subcategory determined by regulation are entitled to an additional benefit which shall be granted according to the rules, terms and conditions prescribed in the regulation, which may vary according to the category or subcategory to which the person belongs. The additional benefit shall be established in the manner prescribed in the regulation.
1996, c. 53, s. 10.
66.2. The actuarial value of the additional benefits granted under section 66.1 shall be financed by the sum of the following amounts:
(1)  the amount resulting from the increase of the employer contribution under section 145;
(2)  the amount equal to the difference between the amounts provided for in the following subparagraphs:
(a)  the amount of contributions paid by the employees and the employer contributions during the period extending from 1 January 1988 to 31 December 1991;
(b)  the amount of contributions which would, during the same period, have been paid by the employees and by the employer had the rate of contribution been fixed in light of the actuarial valuation of the plan as it stands on 31 December 1987.
The amount obtained pursuant to the first paragraph bears interest, compounded annually, and computed according to the rate of return obtained at the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec by the fund of the employees who may be unionized and who are members of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan. For the purpose of computing the interest, the amounts referred to in subparagraphs 1 and 2 of the first paragraph shall be established annually and are deemed to be received at the midpoint of each year.
1996, c. 53, s. 10.
66.3. A regulation under this division may have effect 12 months or less before its adoption.
1996, c. 53, s. 10.
DIVISION III.2
SUPPLEMENTARY PENSION BENEFITS
2002, c. 30, s. 14.
66.4. The Government may, by regulation, provide for the payment of supplementary benefits to be added to the amount of the employee’s pension. The supplementary benefits may vary, in particular, according to the date of retirement and the years of credited service. The Government shall determine the rules, terms and conditions relating to the supplementary benefits as well as the applicable limits.
2002, c. 30, s. 14.
66.5. The actuarial value of the supplementary benefits provided for in section 66.4 shall be financed by the employees. The contributions referred to in the second paragraph of section 42 shall be affected to the payment of those supplementary benefits.
A separate accounting record shall be kept for the contributions and supplementary benefits.
2002, c. 30, s. 14.
66.6. The amounts referred to in section 66.5 bear interest, compounded annually, and computed according to the rate of return obtained at the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec determined according to the cost value of the employee’s contribution fund of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan.
For the purpose of computing the interest, the contributions and benefits paid shall be established annually and are deemed to be received or paid, as the case may be, at the midpoint of each year.
2002, c. 30, s. 14.
66.7. The Commission shall cause a separate actuarial valuation to be prepared simultaneously with the actuarial valuation provided for in section 126. The Commission shall determine the actuarial value of the benefits payable and the amount accumulated under sections 66.5 and 66.6.
Following the valuation, the Government may, by regulation, revise the rate of supplementary contribution provided for in the second paragraph of section 42 and determine the period of application of the rate.
2002, c. 30, s. 14.
66.8. Any excess identified by the actuarial valuation shall be affected only to the portion assumed by the employees in the apportionment of the cost of the plan determined under section 127.
2002, c. 30, s. 14.
66.9. A regulation enacted under this division may have effect 12 months or less before its adoption.
2002, c. 30, s. 14.
DIVISION IV
REFUNDS
67. If an employee ceases to participate in this plan before becoming entitled to a pension or to only a deferred pension, he is entitled, unless he again participates in the plan and subject to section 74, to the refund of his contributions.
In case of death, the contributions shall be refunded to his spouse or, if he has no spouse, to his successors.
1987, c. 107, s. 67; 1988, c. 82, s. 190; 1990, c. 5, s. 13; 1995, c. 46, s. 31.
68. A refund of contributions under the first paragraph of section 67 is payable to the employee entitled thereto from the 211th day following the day on which he ceased to participate in the plan for the last time.
1987, c. 107, s. 68; 1988, c. 82, s. 191; 1990, c. 5, s. 14.
68.1. Every application for a refund of contributions under section 67 shall be filed with the Commission by means of the prescribed form.
1988, c. 82, s. 192.
69. In the case provided for in section 67, where the employee again participates in this plan without having obtained the refund of his contributions, the years and parts of a year of service which he accumulates shall be added to those already credited.
1987, c. 107, s. 69; 1988, c. 82, s. 193.
70. If an employee dies before being entitled to a pension, his contributions are refunded to his spouse or, if he has no spouse, to his successors, subject to section 74.
1987, c. 107, s. 70; 1990, c. 5, s. 15; 1995, c. 46, s. 31.
70.1. If the employee who dies is eligible for a pension but has no spouse or child entitled to a pension, the contributions paid shall be refunded to the employee’s successors, subject to section 74. The same rules apply to a pensioner who dies and has no spouse or child entitled to a pension.
2002, c. 30, s. 15.
70.2. If the total of the amounts paid as pension and supplementary benefits is less than the total of the contributions paid with interest, the difference shall be, subject to section 74, refunded to the employee’s successors, whether or not the employee had been a pensioner, when payment of a pension to the last person entitled to it ceases.
2002, c. 30, s. 15.
71. For the purposes of this division, contributions include every amount paid by the employee and every contribution from which he was exempt under this plan or under any other pension plan out of which service has been transferred to this plan, but do not include contributions deducted in excess for the years subsequent to the year 1986. Contributions also include any interest accrued on such amounts in accordance with the relevant pension plan. However, they do not include any amount refunded to the employee under any such pension plan if, when service was transferred on an actuarially equivalent basis, the total amount of accumulated contributions exceeded the actuarial value of the benefits accrued under the new pension plan.
However, the amounts paid by an employee into a supplemental pension plan established by an employer contemplated by the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan are refunded if the funds or, as the case may be, the actuarial value of the benefits accrued to the employee have been transferred to this plan in accordance with section 135, 136 or 136.1.
1987, c. 107, s. 71; 2001, c. 31, s. 242.
72. Subject to section 73, contributions are refunded with interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined for each period in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10). For the purposes of computing the interest, the contributions are deemed to be received at the mid-point of the year of the payment and the interest is computed up to the first day of the month in which the refund is made.
However, in respect of contributions relating to the service of the employee while he was a member of a pension plan referred to in section 22, the interest is computed from the date on which he begins to pay contributions under this plan and, in respect of contributions paid by the employee into a pension plan out of which service was transferred to this plan pursuant to the second paragraph of section 24 and section 133, the interest is computed from the date of the application in the case of section 24 and from the date of the transfer of the funds in the case of section 133.
1987, c. 107, s. 72; 2002, c. 30, s. 16.
73. Contributions relating to the service of an employee while he was a member of the pension fund of the officers of education established by Part VIII of the Education Act (Revised Statutes of Québec, 1964, chapter 235), the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan are refunded without interest if the service has not been credited under this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis. The same applies to the amounts paid by the employee pursuant to the first paragraph of section 24 and section 33.
1987, c. 107, s. 73.
74. If, at the time of a refund of contributions, amounts have been paid as pension benefits and additional benefits under this plan or under another pension plan out of which service has not been transferred to this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis, the total amount of the contributions including accrued interest up to the date on which pension benefits and additional benefits became payable is reduced by the amounts paid as pension benefits from the date on which the benefits ceased to be paid.The balance of the contributions and of any accrued interest bears interest at the rate in force on the date of the refund in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) for every period during which no benefit was paid.
However, if pension benefits are payable under section 57, the contributions refunded under section 70 do not include contributions relating to service credited for the purpose of computing those pension benefits. In that case, the first paragraph applies, at the time the pension benefits become payable, in respect of other contributions but without taking into account the amounts paid as pension benefits under section 57. From the time the pension benefits cease to be paid, the first paragraph once again applies to the contributions and amounts paid as pension benefits not taken into account for the purpose of the initial refund.
For the purposes of this section, contributions do not include amounts paid for the acquisition of pension credits under sections 41.1 to 41.5. However, with respect to those amounts, section 59 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan applies with the necessary modifications.
1987, c. 107, s. 74; 2002, c. 30, s. 17.
DIVISION V

1987, c. 107, s. 77; 1988, c. 82, s. 194.
78. To determine the benefits that a pensioner is entitled to receive, the benefits are adjusted in accordance with the relevant plan.

79. The annual salary is equal to the salary defined in section 9
(1)  received by the pensioner on the day or part of day preceding the day he retired, computed on a yearly basis; or
(2)  that he would otherwise have received on the day or part of day preceding the day he retired or that he would have received on that day, had he not, among other things, been on leave without pay or receiving salary insurance benefits, computed on a yearly basis.
The annual salary of a pensioner who was not a full-time employee is reduced to the same fraction as that credited to him in respect of service.
1987, c. 107, s. 79; 1988, c. 82, s. 195.
80. The salary of a pensioner who, when he was an employee, held simultaneously more than one pensionable employment under this plan is computed in the same manner as the pensionable salary in such a case.
1987, c. 107, s. 80; 1988, c. 82, s. 196.
81. To determine the annual salary for the years following the year in which the pensioner retired, the salary is adjusted annually and at the intervals prescribed under section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9), according to the rate of increase of the Pension Index determined by the said Act.
The first adjustment is made proportionately to the number of days for which the pensioner received benefits in the year he retired in relation to the total number of days in that year.
1987, c. 107, s. 81.
82. The amounts payable as benefits are paid, if applicable, in the following order:

DIVISION VI
MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS
98. For the purposes of entitlement to and computation of a pension, a maximum of 90 contributory days are added to the service credited to the employee after 31 December 1978 to enable him to make up any period of leave without pay while he held pensionable employment, unless a notice to the contrary is sent by the employee.
The first paragraph does not apply to service credited under this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis.
1987, c. 107, s. 98.
98.1. For each calendar year from 1 January 1988, the days and parts of a day that are not credited to an employee who holds pensionable employment under the plan for at least one day during that calendar year shall be considered solely for the purposes of eligibility for a pension.
However, during the year in which the employee begins to participate in the plan, the days comprised between 1 January and the first day on which the employee holds pensionable employment shall not be considered for the purposes of eligibility. In addition, during the year in which the employee ceases to participate in the plan, the days comprised between the day on which the employee’s participation ceases and 31 December shall not be considered.
Subject to section 98, the first and second paragraphs also apply to an employee who did not have days and parts of a day of leave without pay credited under section 20.
The days and parts of a day that are not credited to an employee who, during the year 1987 or a subsequent year, held pensionable employment under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan for a least one day during the year shall also be considered solely for purposes of eligibility for a pension if they were not otherwise considered under this plan.
2002, c. 30, s. 21.
98.2. For the purposes of section 98.1, the Government may, by regulation, establish a pension reduction factor and criteria for the application of that factor. The Government may also designate categories and subcategories of employees to whom the factor and the criteria do not apply.
2002, c. 30, s. 21.
99. The years and parts of a year of service that were recognized solely for purposes of entitlement to a pension under the Teachers Pension Plan, the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel, the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan and the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers are added, for purposes of entitlement to any pension, to the years of service credited pursuant to section 15. The same rule applies to years and parts of a year of service not credited under this plan by reason of the application of section 23 and the second paragraphs of sections 38 and 39 and to the years and parts of a year recognized solely for purposes of entitlement to a pension under a transfer agreement entered into pursuant to section 133, provided they have not otherwise been credited pursuant to section 40 or, as the case may be, pursuant to the relevant agreement.
1987, c. 107, s. 99; 2001, c. 31, s. 245.
100. Every pension is indexed annually, at the time prescribed under section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9),
(1)  for that part attributable to service prior to 1 January 2000, by the excess of the rate of increase of the Pension Index determined by the said Act over 3%; and
(2)  for that part attributable to service subsequent to 31 December 1999, by the formula provided for in subparagraph 1 of this paragraph or by one-half of the rate of increase of the Pension Index, according to the formula that is the most advantageous.
Deferred pensions are adjusted in the same manner but the adjustment applies only from 1 January following the date on which the pension becomes payable.
1987, c. 107, s. 100; 2002, c. 30, s. 22.
101. The first index adjustment of a pension is made proportionately
(1)  to the number of days for which the pension 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;
(2)  where applicable, to the number of days for which the pension was or would have been paid during the year of the death of the employee in relation to the total number of days in that year.
1987, c. 107, s. 101; 1997, c. 71, s. 18.
102. In no case may a pension granted after 10 years of credited service, except a child’s pension or a pension under section 62, be less than $3 836, adjusted annually and at the intervals prescribed under section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9) for each year concerned until the year in which it became payable, according to the rate of increase of the Pension Index determined by the said Act and, for following years, adjusted in the manner prescribed in section 100, reduced in accordance with section 51 or, as the case may be, paragraph 1 of section 56 even if, in the latter case, the pension is payable under section 57.
A reduction required under the first paragraph applies even if no pension is paid under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan.
However, the first paragraph applies only with respect to that part of the pension established under paragraph 1 of section 45, and the amount provided for in that paragraph is multiplied by the fraction that the number of years of service credited before 1 January 1992 is of the total number of years of service credited.
1987, c. 107, s. 102; 1992, c. 67, s. 25.
103. The Commission, upon the application of a beneficiary other than a beneficiary referred to in section 75 or 90 may, at any time after the pension becomes payable, make cash payment of the actuarial value, established according to the actuarial assumptions and methods determined by regulation, of any pension, if the total amount is not more than $881 annually.
In no case may cash payment of the actuarial value of a child’s pension or a pension granted by reason of physical or mental disability be made if, in the latter case, the pensioner is under 65 years of age.
The amount of $881 is, at the time prescribed under section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9), adjusted annually according to the rate of increase of the Pension Index determined by the said Act.
1987, c. 107, s. 103; 1991, c. 14, s. 7.
104. A pension granted under subparagraph 5 of the first paragraph of section 44 shall cease to be paid on the first day of the month following the date on which the reason for which the pension was obtained ceases to apply.
However, every employee whose pension ceases to be paid pursuant to the first paragraph and who holds pensionable employment under this plan shall participate in this plan or, if he holds pensionable employment under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan or the Pension Plan of Management Personnel, he shall participate in either of such plans, or, as the case may be, in the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers.

CHAPTER VIII
ADMINISTRATION AND TRANSFER OF FUNDS
DIVISION I
ADMINISTRATION
131. The Commission administrative des régimes de retraite et d’assurances is responsible for the administration of the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services.
1987, c. 107, s. 131; 1990, c. 87, s. 104.
132. No person may claim entitlement to any benefit, ancillary benefit or refund under the plan unless he applies therefor to the Commission.
Even if no application for payment is made, payment of benefits payable under this plan shall begin not later than 31 December of the year in which the employee attains 69 years of age or, if the employee still holds pensionable employment under the plan on that date, from the date on which the employee retires.
1987, c. 107, s. 132; 1997, c. 71, s. 20.
132.1. Where an application for the redemption of years or parts of a year is made to the Commission under this plan, the Commission shall send the employee a redemption proposal valid for a period of 60 days from the date it is made.
The application for redemption is deemed never to have been made if the Commission does not receive from the employee before the 60-day period expires a notice to the effect that he accepts the proposal.
In addition, the application is deemed never to have been made if the lump sum payment of the cost of redemption is not made before the 60-day period expires, where such a payment is exigible owing to the choice made by the employee or by operation of law. Where payment is exigible by instalments and the employee fails to make a payment, the application for redemption is deemed never to have been made in respect of service for which the payments have not been made if the employee does not make the overdue payment within 30 days after the date of a notice from the Commission to that effect. In that case, the most recent service is credited first. However, in the case of sections 20, 27, 29, 30 and 38, the application for redemption is deemed never to have been made in respect of all the service, and the amounts paid by the employee shall be refunded with the interest contemplated in and computed pursuant to section 72.
No interest is computed for the period during which the redemption proposal provided for in the first paragraph is valid. Where the Commission refuses the redemption of years or parts of years and its decision is quashed following a review or arbitration based on the data contained in the record at the time of the refusal, no interest is computed in respect of such years or parts of years between the date of the refusal and the date on which the redemption proposal expires. As well, no interest is computed in respect of the period between the expiry date of a redemption proposal in respect of which the cost is contested and the expiry date of a new proposal made following a decision by the reexamination committee or arbitrator that modifies the cost.
1990, c. 87, s. 28; 1991, c. 77, s. 32; 1992, c. 67, s. 27; 1993, c. 41, s. 9; 1993, c. 74, s. 7; 1994, c. 20, s. 6; 2002, c. 30, s. 27.
132.1.1. Notwithstanding section 132.1, an employee who makes an application for review to the Commission in the period during which the redemption proposal is valid is not bound to accept it during that period, or to make payments, until a final decision has been made on his application. After the decision of the review committee or arbitrator, as the case may be, has been mailed, the Commission administrative des régimes de retraite et d’assurances shall send a notice to the employee which, as of the date of the redemption proposal, repeats or modifies that proposal, and section 132.1 applies.
Any unpaid amount in respect of the redemption proposal bears interest, compounded annually and payable according to the same terms and conditions as the redemption, from the date of that proposal until the date of the Commission’s notice. The rate is that provided for in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) and in force on the date the application for redemption is received, unless interest is otherwise payable for that period by operation of law.
1993, c. 74, s. 8; 1997, c. 43, s. 621.
132.2. No benefit resulting from the redemption under this plan of years or parts of years prior to 1 January 1990 may exceed the defined benefit limit applicable in respect of such years or parts of years under the Income Tax Act (Revised Statutes of Canada, 1985, chapter 1, 5th Supplement).
For the purposes of the first paragraph, the limit applicable to the pensionable salary for the purpose of establishing the cost of redemption, the limit applicable to the service that may be credited, and the rules and procedures for computing that part of the pension which relates to the years or parts of years redeemed, may be established by regulation.
1992, c. 67, s. 28.
132.3. The periods of absence of an employee occurring after 31 December 1991 which may be credited under this plan are, for each type of absence and in total, determined by regulation.
1992, c. 67, s. 28.
133. The Commission may, with the authorization of the Government, enter into a transfer agreement with a body having a pension plan or any other body maintaining or administering a pension plan to obtain the transfer, in respect of an employee who is a member of this plan, of all or part of years of service credited to the employee under the pension plan of which he formerly was a member. If such a transfer agreement stipulates that years and parts of a year of service standing to the credit of an employee under the other pension plan are recognized solely for purposes of entitlement to a pension under this plan, any employee who pays an amount determined pursuant to the agreement to be credited under this plan with all or part of such years and parts of a year of service shall do so as provided in the second paragraph of section 40.
The Commission may, according to law, enter into such an agreement with a government in Canada or any of its departments or agencies.
Such agreements may provide the terms and conditions of a transfer and provide for the case of an employee who enters the service of a government in Canada or of one of its departments or of any other agency.
1987, c. 107, s. 133; 1992, c. 67, s. 29.
134. All sums of money collected pursuant to this plan shall be paid into the consolidated revenue fund.
All sums required for the carrying out of this Act shall be taken out of the consolidated revenue fund except such sums as may be required for its administration, which are paid in accordance with section 158.5 or, where applicable, with section 158.6 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10).
1987, c. 107, s. 134; 1996, c. 53, s. 14.
DIVISION II
TRANSFER OF FUNDS
135. All sums paid into the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec pursuant to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) in respect of an employee who, on 31 December 1987, was a peace officer included in the bargaining unit referred to in section 1 and who has become a member of this plan on 1 January 1988 and in respect of an employee who, on 31 December 1991, was an intermediate officer holding employment in a house of detention or a person belonging to a class or subclass of employees determined under subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 1.1 and who, on 1 January 1992, became a member of this plan shall be transferred to the consolidated revenue fund, except the employer’s contributions paid under section 31 of the said Act.
All transferred sums shall bear interest from 1 July of the year in which they were paid except sums transferred pursuant to section 102 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan which shall bear interest from the date of the transfer. Interest is computed at the rates determined, for each period, under the said Act, and is compounded annually.
1987, c. 107, s. 135; 1991, c. 77, s. 33; 1992, c. 16, s. 3.
136. The Commission shall, with respect to every employee other than an employee referred to in section 135, transfer to the consolidated revenue fund the actuarial value of the benefits accrued to the employee, if any, under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan in respect of the years and parts of a year of service for which contributions or, as the case may be, sums paid by the employee have been deposited into the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec without, however, exceeding the actuarial value of the equivalent benefits to which he is entitled under this plan. The actuarial values are those established pursuant to section 23 in respect of those years and parts of a year of service.
All sums transferred pursuant to the first paragraph shall bear interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined, for each period, under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) from the date on which the employee began to pay contributions to this plan to the date on which the sums are transferred to the consolidated revenue fund. The sums are taken out of the relevant funds of the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec according to the procedure for the payment of benefits contained in Division II of Chapter IX of Title I of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan.
1987, c. 107, s. 136.
136.1. The Commission shall, with respect to every employee other than an employee referred to in section 135, transfer to the consolidated revenue fund the actuarial value of the benefits accrued to the employee, if any, under the Pension Plan of Management Personnel in respect of the years and parts of a year of service for which contributions or, as the case may be, sums paid by the employee have been deposited into the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec without exceeding, however, the actuarial value of the equivalent benefits to which the employee is entitled under this plan. The actuarial values are those established pursuant to section 23 in respect of those years and parts of a year of service.
All sums transferred pursuant to the first paragraph shall bear interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined, for each period, under the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel (chapter R-12.1) from the date on which the employee began to pay contributions to this plan to the date on which the sums are transferred to the consolidated revenue fund. The sums are taken out of the relevant funds of the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec according to the procedure for the payment of benefits contained in sections 180 and 182 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel.
2001, c. 31, s. 256.

The actuarial values are those established pursuant to section 23.
All sums transferred pursuant to the first paragraph shall bear interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined for each period in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan from the date on which the employee began to pay contributions to this plan until the date on which the sums are transferred to the consolidated revenue fund. The sums shall be taken out of the relevant funds of the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec.
1987, c. 107, s. 137; 2002, c. 30, s. 28.
138. The Commission shall, with respect to the years and parts of a year of service that were credited to an employee under this plan and transferred pursuant to section 115.7 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), deposit into the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec the actuarial value of the benefits accrued under this plan without, however, exceeding the actuarial value of the equivalent benefits to which he is entitled under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan. The actuarial values are those established pursuant to section 115.7.
All sums transferred pursuant to the first paragraph shall bear interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined for each period in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, from the date the employee began to pay contributions to the said pension plan until the date on which the said sums are deposited into the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec. The sums shall be paid to the said Caisse, into the funds and in the proportion determined pursuant to the second paragraph of section 130 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan.

All sums transferred pursuant to the first paragraph shall bear interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined, for each period, under the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel, from the date the employee began to pay contributions to the said pension plan until the date on which the said sums are deposited into the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec. The sums shall be paid to the said Caisse, into the funds and in the proportion determined pursuant to the second paragraph of section 180 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel. The second paragraph of section 139 applies, with the necessary modifications.
2001, c. 31, s. 257.
139. An employee who, on 31 December 1987, was a peace officer included in the bargaining unit referred to in section 1 who became a member of this plan on 1 January 1988 and who was redeeming years and parts of a year of service on 31 December 1987 or an employee who, on 31 December 1991, was an intermediate officer holding employment in a house of detention or a person belonging to a class or subclass of employees determined under subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 1.1, who became a member of this plan on 1 January 1992 and who was redeeming years and parts of a year of service on 31 December 1991 may continue to pay the redemption costs according to the terms and conditions prevailing under his former pension plan. The service concerned shall be credited under this plan to the extent determined pursuant to section 22 or, as the case may be, section 23, but in proportion to the sums that will effectively be paid by the employee, excluding interest, on the total redemption costs. The sums paid by the employee after the date of the transfer of the sums to the consolidated revenue fund pursuant to section 135 shall, however, be deposited into that fund.
Any employee other than an employee mentioned in the first paragraph who is redeeming years and parts of a year of service under a pension plan referred to in section 22 at the time he begins to pay contributions to this plan must pay in full the balance of the redemption costs within 30 days a notice to that effect is mailed by the Commission. The service in respect of which redemption costs are paid after the employee begins to pay contributions to this plan must be taken into consideration in calculating the actuarial value of the benefits and shall be credited to the extent determined pursuant to section 23.
1987, c. 107, s. 139; 1991, c. 77, s. 34; 1992, c. 16, s. 3.
CHAPTER IX
REVIEW AND ARBITRATION
1994, c. 20, s. 7.
140. Every employee and every beneficiary may apply to the Commission for a review of any decision rendered by it concerning
(1)  his eligibility to be a member of the plan;
(2)  the number of his years of service and contributory periods;
(3)  the pensionable salary and the amount of his contributions;
(4)  the amount of his pension;
(5)  any benefit, ancillary benefit or refund under this plan.
The application must be made within one year of the mailing of the decision.
However, where a beneficiary has not applied, within the time limit provided for in the second paragraph, for a review of the reduction amount of the beneficiary’s pension applicable from the month following the beneficiary’s sixty-fifth birthday, the beneficiary may do so within one year after the date on which the Commission mails the confirmation of the application of that reduction.

142. The review committee must, after giving the person who applied for review the opportunity to present observations, dispose of the application without delay and notify its decision to the person.
The decision must include the reasons on which it is based.
However, if no decision is made because opinions are equally divided, the decision of the Commission is deemed maintained and the application for review is referred for decision to the arbitrator.
The review committee shall notify the persons concerned without delay, and the provisions applicable to an application for arbitration apply with the necessary changes. The committee shall send the employee’s or beneficiary’s application for review to the arbitrator within the time prescribed in such provisions.
1987, c. 107, s. 142; 1994, c. 20, s. 9; 1997, c. 43, s. 624.
