Beneficial owner
2(1)  For the purposes of this Regulation, a person is the beneficial owner

obtain consent or directions from any other person respecting the sale,

     or

(2)  Notwithstanding subsection (1), if voting shares are held by a person
as security only pursuant to an agreement or arrangement under which that
person has the right to sell or to direct the sale of the shares without

pursuant to an offer of voting shares by way of

     (a)  rights granted by the Corporation to registered holders to

the Corporation may, for the purposes of this section, count all of the

outstanding until the offer has terminated.

(4)  Subsection (3) does not apply if the offer exceeds 120 days in
duration.


Underwriters and intermediaries
4(1)  Section 3(1) does not apply to

     (a)  a person acting as an underwriter in connection with a
distribution of voting shares during the period commencing on the

of that distribution or 120 days after the commencement date of that
distribution, whichever occurs first, or

     (b)  a person who provides centralized facilities for the clearing

the shares,

owner of the shares.

Request for information
13(1)  At the request of the Corporation, a person must file a
shareholder's declaration with the Corporation or its registrar and
transfer agent if that person

Corporation to enable the Corporation to determine whether this Regulation

(3)  Without restricting the Corporation's right to request information,
the information mentioned in subsection (2) may include in respect of any
voting shares

     (a)  the name and address of the current or proposed registered
holder of the voting shares,

     (b)  the name and address of any person on whose behalf the current

voting shares,

     (c)  whether the current or proposed beneficial owner of the voting
shares is a non-Canadian,

     (d)  the number of voting shares that are or are to be held by the
current or proposed beneficial owner and the date or dates on which that
person acquired or is to acquire his interests, and

only.

(4)  When

     (a)  a shareholder's declaration is requested in respect of voting
shares under this section by the Corporation from a registered holder or a
beneficial owner or another person for whom the registered holder or other
intermediary has indicated he holds the voting shares, and

     (b)  the registered holder, beneficial owner or other person does
not submit to the Corporation a declaration satisfactory to the Corporation
within the time, being not less than 30 days, prescribed in the request,

then, until a declaration satisfactory to the Corporation has been
submitted to it,

     (c)  no dividends shall be paid, and no voting rights shall be
exercised, in respect of those voting shares, and

     (d)  sections 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 14(4) apply to those voting
shares as though they were voting shares held in contravention of section
3.

(5)  It is a condition of every transfer of voting shares to be made or
recorded in the securities register of the Corporation and of the issue of
voting shares that the person to whom the shares are being transferred or
issued must submit to the Corporation a declaration if requested pursuant
to subsection (1).

(6)  When the Corporation has requested a declaration from a person, other
than a person referred to in section 4(1)(b), pursuant to subsection (1),
the Corporation must not

     (b)  accept any request from that person to issue voting shares upon
the conversion of securities, or

     (c)  allow any transfer of voting shares to be made or recorded in
the name of that person in the securities register of the Corporation,

unless the declaration has been submitted to the Corporation and it appears
from the declaration that a contravention of section 3 would not result
from the acceptance of the offer to purchase the shares being purchased,
the acceptance of the request to issue shares upon the conversion of
securities or the entry in the securities register of the share transfer,
as the case may be.

14(1)  A registered holder or beneficial owner of voting shares may apply
to the Court of Queen's Bench for an order under this section.

(2)  On application under this section, the Court may, subject to section
16(2) of the Act, make an order to rectify the contravention complained of
if the Court is satisfied that any directors then holding office were

     (a)  elected at an election at which voting shares were voted in
contravention of section 4, 5 or 13(4), or

     (b)  appointed to replace directors elected at an election at which
voting shares were voted in contravention of section 4, 5 or 13(4).

(3)  In connection with an application under this section, the Court may
make any interim or final order it thinks fit, including, without limiting
the generality of the foregoing, any or all of the following:

     (a)  an order restraining the Board from exercising any powers
specified in the order;

voting shares specified in the order.


Reliance by the Corporation
15(1)  The Corporation is entitled to assume for the purposes of this
Regulation that the registered holder of any voting shares is also the
beneficial owner of the shares except if the Corporation has evidence to
the contrary by way of

     (a)  a statutory declaration or other declaration in a form
authorized by the Board submitted by the registered holder to the
Corporation stating that some other person is the beneficial owner of the
shares and naming that beneficial owner,

     (b)  statements made in any declaration submitted to the Corporation
under section 13, or

     (c)  any other information in the possession of the Corporation,

and if the Corporation then has no reasonable grounds to believe that the
evidence is not true.

(2)  If the Corporation is of the reasonable opinion, from the securities
register of the Corporation or otherwise, that a person holds as beneficial
owner not more than the lesser of

     (a)  0.02% of the total number of issued and outstanding voting
shares, and

     (b)  20 000 voting shares,

the Corporation is entitled to assume for the purposes of this Regulation,
unless the address recorded in the securities register for the person is
outside Canada, that the shares will be held by a Canadian as beneficial
owner.

(3)  In determining, for the purposes of this Regulation,

     (a)  whether voting shares are held in contravention of section 3,

     (b)  whether voting rights were exercised in contravention of
section 4, 5 or 13(4), or

     (c)  any other circumstances relevant to the performance of the
duties of the Corporation and the Board under this Regulation,

the Corporation and any director, officer, employee or agent of the
Corporation may rely on statements made in any declaration submitted under
section 13 or subsection (1)(a) of this section or may rely on the
knowledge of any director, officer, employee or agent of the circumstances,
and the Corporation and its directors, officers, employees or agents are
not liable in an action for any thing done or omitted by them in good faith
in connection with this Regulation, including any thing done or omitted as
a result of any conclusions made by them on the basis of any such
statements or knowledge.


Repeal
16   The Canadian Ownership Regulation (AR 138/94) is repealed.


Expiry
17   For the purpose of ensuring that this Regulation is reviewed for
ongoing relevancy and necessity, with the option that it may be repassed in
its present or an amended form following a review, this Regulation expires
on December 31, 2003.



     ERRATUM

The Designation and Transfer of Responsibility Amendment Regulation as
published in The Alberta Gazette of October 31, 1998 (vol. 94 no. 20 p.
690) was incorrectly numbered as Alberta Regulation 190/89.  That
Regulation was filed on October 7, 1998 as Alberta Regulation 190/98.
