284. In addition to the other provisions permitted by this Act to be set out in articles of amalgamation, the articles of amalgamation must contain
(1) in the case of a long-form amalgamation, the elements required under paragraphs 1, 3, 4 and 5 of section 277; and
(2) in the case of a short-form amalgamation, the provisions required under subparagraph 2 of the second paragraph of section 281 or 282, as the case may be.
In the case of a long-form amalgamation, the articles must be filed with the documents required under section 8.
