7. For the purposes of this plan, an employee is a member of a pension plan from the first day on which the employee holds pensionable employment. However, an employee who, before becoming a member of this plan, 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, established under section 136 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), received the application for the redemption of the past service.
For the purposes of this plan, an employee is deemed to hold pensionable employment when the employee holds full-time or part-time employment, which includes any period during which the employee is absent without pay, is eligible for salary insurance benefits or, in the case of a female employee, is on maternity leave.
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.
