1. A defined benefit pension plan that is governed both by the Supplemental Pension Plans Act (chapter R-15.1) and by similar legislation of another legislative jurisdiction in Canada is covered by this Regulation. Such a pension plan is said to be a “multi-jurisdictional pension plan”.
For the purposes of this Regulation, a defined contribution and benefit plan must be considered as a defined benefit pension plan.
A multi-jurisdictional pension plan exempted from the application of provisions of the Act under a regulation made under the second paragraph of section 2 of the Act is not covered by this Regulation to the extent where, for the purpose of funding the pension plan, solvency requirements apply in respect of the establishment of amortization payments.
