(2012, chapter 32).
November 21 2013
DIVISION 1
AFFECTED ENTERPRISES
1. A target-benefit pension plan can be established in an enterprise covered by the Act to provide for the establishment of target-benefit pension plans in certain pulp and paper sector enterprises (2012, chapter 32) where the conditions referred to in paragraphs 2 and 3 of section 1 of that Act are met between 30 December 2010 and 1 January 2014.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 1.
DIVISION 2
ESTABLISHMENT AND EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE PLAN
2. A target-benefit pension plan may be established with regard to service affected by a component of a pension plan established in application of a regulation made pursuant to section 2 of the Supplemental Pension Plans Act (chapter R-15.1). It may be established as part of that pension plan or as a separate pension plan.
The target-benefit pension plan is effective as of the date on which the component is established.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 2.
3. A pension plan established under this Regulation is said to be a “target-benefit pension plan”.
The provisions of the Supplemental Pension Plans Act (chapter R-15.1) apply to the target-benefit pension plan, except to the extent provided for under this Regulation. Moreover, in the case of a discrepancy, the provisions of this Regulation prevail over those of the Act.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 3.
4. Where the target-benefit pension plan is established as a component of a pension plan, the provisions of this Regulation apply solely to the component, unless otherwise indicated, as though it were a separate pension plan. The provisions of a regulation referred to in the first paragraph of section 2, under which section the component is constituted, continue to apply thereto.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 4.
DIVISION 3
CHARACTERISTICS
5. A target-benefit pension plan established under this Regulation must include the following characteristics:
(1)  the employer and member contributions as well as the method used for calculating those contributions are determined in advance;
(2)  the plan text determines the benefits target, including any ancillary benefit, on the basis of which the current service contribution is established;
(3)  the normal pension may vary according to the financial situation of the pension plan, as can any ancillary benefit provided for under the plan; the same variation being described in the actuarial valuation report for the plan;
(4)  notwithstanding section 39 of the Act, the employer contribution to the plan is limited to the one set out in the plan text;
(5)  the cost of the plan’s obligations determined in accordance with section 8 and the additional contribution referred to in section 8.1, after deducting the employer contribution set out in the plan text, is charged solely to the members and beneficiaries of the plan, under the conditions provided for in section 27;
(6)  only the members and beneficiaries are entitled to surplus assets during the existence of the plan, as in the case of its termination;
(7)  the plan has no defined contribution provision nor provisions that, under a defined benefit plan, are identical to those of a defined contribution plan.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 5; 324-2016O.C. 324-2016, s. 1.
6. A target-benefit plan constitutes, for the purposes of the Act, a defined benefit plan.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 6.
DIVISION 4
FUNDING
§ 1.  — General
7. Notwithstanding section 42.1 of the Act, the employer may not exempt itself from the contributions it must pay by means of letter of credit nor may it exempt itself by the allocation of the surplus assets in whole or in part.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 7.
8. The cost of the plan’s obligations determined in an actuarial valuation after 30 December 2014 is equal to the sum of the following:
(1)  the current service contribution determined in accordance with section 138 of the Act;
(2)  the amortization payment determined in respect of the funding actuarial deficiency.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 8; 324-2016O.C. 324-2016, s. 2.
8.1. An additional contribution which represents at least 15% of the current service contribution determined in accordance with section 138 of the Act must be made to the plan. The additional contribution is established without taking into account any margin for adverse deviations provided for by the Canadian Institute of Actuaries.
324-2016O.C. 324-2016, s. 3.
9. The amortization period for a funding actuarial deficiency ends, notwithstanding paragraph 2 of section 142 of the Act, no later than 10 years after the date of the actuarial valuation that determines the deficiency.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 9; 324-2016O.C. 324-2016, s. 4.
10. No solvency deficiency may be determined with respect to a target-benefit pension plan.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 10; 324-2016O.C. 324-2016, s. 5.
11. The value of the obligations arising from a target-benefit pension plan for credited service completed during the current fiscal year of the plan is determined based on the benefits target provided for under the plan.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 11.
12. For the purposes of section 128 of the Act, the amount of the actuarial gains corresponds to the amount by which the plan assets, increased by the value of the amortization payments remaining to be paid to amortize a funding deficiency determined during a prior actuarial valuation, exceeds the plan’s liabilities, the latter being reduced by the value of the additional obligations arising from a measure referred to in section 30 that is considered for the first time during the valuation.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 12; 324-2016O.C. 324-2016, s. 6.
13. The target-benefit pension plan may not provide for the payment of additional voluntary contributions nor may it allow any sums to be transferred to its fund from any other pension plan, even one not referred to in the Act.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 13.
14. The maximum set in section 60 of the Act does not apply to member contributions to a target-benefit plan.
The provisions of section 60.1 of the Act do not apply to a target-benefit pension plan.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 14.
15. The provision for adverse deviations, notwithstanding the regulatory provisions made under section 128 of the Act, is the one provided for under the target-benefit pension plan. It may not be less than 20% of the liabilities of the plan determined on a funding basis.
Despite the foregoing, to determine the maximum amount of surplus assets that may be allocated, in application of the second paragraph of section 30, to the restoration of benefits that were reduced, the provision for adverse deviations provided for under the plan is reduced by 50%.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 15; 324-2016O.C. 324-2016, s. 7.
16. Notwithstanding the second paragraph of section 118 of the Act, any actuarial valuation of a target-benefit pension plan must be complete.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 16.
§ 2.  — Conditions for payment of benefits
17. The provisions of this subdivision, with the exception of those in section 26, apply to any payment of benefits during the existence of the plan.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 17.
18. Notwithstanding section 99 of the Act, a member who is less than 10 years under normal retirement age or who has attained or exceeded normal retirement age may exercise the right to transfer provided for under section 98 of the Act in the 90 days following receipt of the statement provided for in section 113 of the Act.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 18.
19. Any additional benefits related to early retirement shall be included in the value of the deferred pension, regardless of the age of the member.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 19.
20. A target-benefit pension plan is exempt from the application of sections 143 to 146 of the Act.
The value of the benefits of a member or beneficiary shall be paid in proportion to the degree of solvency of the plan determined in accordance with section 22.
The amount paid in application of the second paragraph may not be less that the total of the contributions made by the member plus accrued interest.
A payment made in accordance with this section constitutes a valid discharge with respect to the benefits covered by the payment.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 20.
21. For the purposes of section 66 of the Act, the value of the benefits is determined by applying the degree of solvency of the plan determined in accordance with section 22.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 21.
22. The degree of solvency of the target-benefit pension plan taken into account for the payment of benefits is the one determined during the last actuarial valuation of the plan or the one determined under the plan for a period less than a fiscal year, whichever is most recent.
The pension committee must determine or have determined the degree of solvency of the plan as at the end date of each period so prescribed. For that purpose, the actuary in charge of preparing the actuarial valuation report required at the end date of a fiscal year of the plan must define in the report a method that, taking into account the return on the investment of the plan assets and the change in the valuation rate, will allow the degree of solvency to be determined summarily before the date of the next required actuarial valuation.
The most recent degree of solvency is assessed on the date on which is received by the pension committee the application for a refund or transfer of benefits filed by a member who has ceased to be active, or the application for the benefit provided for in the first paragraph of section 86 of the Act, filed by the spouse or successor of the member. Where the benefits are paid other than on demand, the degree of solvency is assessed as at the date on which the application for the purchase of an annuity is submitted to the insurer or, where the payment is made by other means than the purchase of an annuity, as at the date the payment is made.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 22.
23. Except where a request has been made by a member or beneficiary, the pension committee may only proceed with the payment, through the purchase of an annuity, of the benefits of a member or beneficiary whose pension is already in payment where the following conditions are met:
(1)  the value of the member’s benefits at the time of payment, multiplied by the degree of solvency of the pension plan, is greater than or equal to the value of the benefits target;
(2)  the amount of the annuity purchased is at least equal to the pension the member or beneficiary was receiving before its purchase;
(3)  the payment does not reduce the degree of solvency of the plan.
The value of the benefits of the member or beneficiary is established using the premium determined according to the assumptions for hypothetical wind-up and solvency valuations established by the Canadian Institute of Actuaries as they apply on the date of the calculation made for the purposes of the payment of the benefits.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 23.
24. Except where a request has been made by a member or beneficiary, the refund referred to in section 66 of the Act may be made only where the conditions referred to in subparagraphs 1 and 3 of the first paragraph of section 23 are met.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 24.
25. Notwithstanding the third paragraph of section 33 and section 240.2 of the Act, a member whose benefits are paid in full ceases to be a member of the pension plan.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 25.
26. The provisions of subdivision 4 of Division II of Chapter XIII of the Act, related to the debt of the employer on termination of the target-benefit pension plan, do not apply except concerning the employer contributions provided for under the plan that have not been paid on the date of termination.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 26.
§ 3.  — Reduction in benefits and increase in member contributions
27. Where an actuarial valuation of a target-benefit pension plan shows that the sum of the cost of the plan’s obligations and the additional contribution exceeds the contributions set out under the plan, the shortfall in contributions, subject to the terms and conditions prescribed by the plan text, must be offset by one or more of the following corrective measures:
(1)  a reduction in the benefits arising from service completed prior to the date of the actuarial valuation;
(2)  an increase in member contributions;
(3)  a reduction of the benefits target.
The plan text must provide the types of corrective measures that can be used and indicate the priority of use for each measure.
The provisions of the first paragraph only apply where the shortfall in contributions is greater than 2% of the contributions set under the plan.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 27; 324-2016O.C. 324-2016, s. 8.
28. The corrective measures referred to in the first paragraph of section 27 may not become effective until the day following the date of the actuarial valuation that determined the contribution shortfall. Moreover, the corrective measures may take effect no later than one year after the day following the date of that valuation.
The adjustment of accrued benefits and the change to member contributions or the benefits target must take into consideration, for actuarial purposes, any deferment thus determined.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 28.
29. A corrective measure referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 27 does not constitute an amendment to the plan.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 29.
§ 4.  — Appropriation of surplus assets
30. During the existence of the plan, only the portion of the surplus assets that exceeds the provision for adverse deviations, as referred to in section 15 and as determined in an actuarial valuation of the plan, may be appropriated.
The portion must first be appropriated to restoring, up to the amount of the benefits target, any benefits that were reduced. The plan text must provide the terms and conditions for restoring benefits, particularly the order in which the benefits are to be restored.
Where a balance of the portion of the surplus assets remains, the balance may be appropriated as provided for in the plan text or, in the absence of such a provision, as determined by the person or body empowered to amend the plan.
With the exception of measures aimed at increasing the benefits target, a measure taken in application of the second and third paragraphs does not constitute an amendment to the plan.
The provisions of section 146.3 do not apply to an amendment whose purpose is to increase the benefits target.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 30.
31. Notwithstanding section 146.1 of the Act, the maximum amount of surplus assets that may be appropriated under section 30 is equal to the lesser of the following amounts:
(1)  on a solvency basis, the amount by which the plan’s assets, exceed the plan’s liabilities, reduced by the value of the additional obligations arising from any measure referred to in section 30 considered for the first time during the valuation;
(2)  on a funding basis, the amount by which the plan’s assets, reduced by the reserve provided for in section 128 of the Act exceed its liabilities, the latter being reduced by the value of the additional obligations arising from any measure referred to in section 30 considered for the first time during the valuation.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 31; 324-2016O.C. 324-2016, s. 9.
32. A measure referred to in the second paragraph of section 30 may not become effective until the day following the date of the actuarial valuation that determined the surplus assets. Moreover, the measure may take effect no later than one year after the day following the date of that valuation.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 32.
33. No measure referred to in section 30 may be made unless the resulting additional obligations are paid in full from the surplus assets.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 33.
DIVISION 5
SEIZURE, TRANSFER OR PARTITION OF BENEFITS
34. For the purposes of a seizure, transfer or partition of benefits, the value that must be considered as the value of the aggregate benefits of the member or the value of the benefits accrued during the union is equal to the product of the value determined pursuant to the applicable provisions of the Regulation respecting supplemental pension plans (chapter R-15.1, r. 6), multiplied by the degree of solvency of the plan as at the date of their valuation determined in accordance with section 22.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 34.
35. Where no pension is being paid to the member as at the date of execution of the partition or transfer of pension benefits, the amount referred to in the first paragraph of section 54 of that regulation, and for which the pension committee must keep a record, is replaced by the amount calculated according to the following formula:
A × B/C
“A” represents the amount of the normal pension that would be payable to the member at normal retirement age for his recognized credited service at the date of the valuation and according to the conditions and characteristics provided for by the plan for that pension;
“B” represents the sum remitted to the spouse further to partition or a transfer, including interest;
“C” represents the value considered for the purpose of the partition or transfer of the member’s benefits.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 35.
36. To determine the residual benefits of the member receiving a pension as at the date of execution of the partition or transfer of benefits, the amount referred to in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 55 of the Regulation respecting supplemental pension plans (chapter R-15.1, r. 6) is equal to the amount calculated according to the following formula:
A - (A × B/C)
“A” represents the benefit payable to the member as at the date of execution of the partition or transfer;
“B” represents the sum remitted to the spouse further to partition or a transfer, including interest;
“C” represents the value the member’s pension would have had at the date of execution of the partition or transfer of benefits had it been determined based on the amount and type of pension on the date of the valuation and taking into account the assumptions on that date.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 36.
37. Notwithstanding subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 50 of the Regulation respecting supplemental pension plans (chapter R-15.1, r. 6), no amount granted to the spouse further to the partition or transfer of the member’s benefits may be retained in the plan or transferred thereto, even where the spouse is a member of the plan.
O.C. 1052-2013, s. 37.
