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.
