10.1. The actuarial values of the benefits referred to in sections 138.1 and 138.7 of the Act are determined using the following actuarial method and assumptions:

Actuarial method

The actuarial method is the “projected benefit method” pro rated on service.

In the case of section 138.1, the pensionable salary of the pension plans involved in the transfer is the salary that is taken into account to determine the average pensionable salary used to calculate the pension.

Actuarial assumptions

(1) Mortality rates:

The mortality rates are determined in accordance with the CIA Standard.

(2) Interest rates:

For fully-indexed and non-indexed benefits:

The interest rates are those determined in accordance with the CIA Standard.

For partially indexed benefits:

The interest rates are determined according to the following formula:

((1 + interest rate for a non-indexed benefit)/(1 + indexing rate for a partially-indexed benefit) - 1

The result must be rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.25%.

(3) Indexing rate:

(a) for a fully-indexed benefit according to the rate of increase in the pension index, the indexing rate is computed in the manner described in the CIA Standard;

(b) for a benefit indexed according to the excess of the rate of increase in the pension index (PI) over 3% or to half of the rate of increase in the pension index, the indexing rate corresponds respectively to the excess of the indexing rate computed in the manner provided in subparagraph a over 3% or to half the indexing rate computed in the manner provided in that subparagraph.
