investments that would be agreed on in an arm's length transaction between

for by Part 5 of the plan rules to exiting participants or for benefits and
entitlements that are not less favourable for those persons in respect of

                         (i)  pensionable service accumulated to the
time of exit, and

                         (ii) pensionable salaries earned during
participation in the Plan and in the other plan,

               (b)  provide in effect that all service of or with
respect to exiting persons that counts as combined pensionable service for
the purposes of determining eligibility for benefits under the Plan is to
count for the same purposes in effect under the other plan,

               (c)  provide to persons referred to in section 24.4(b) 
the protection afforded by section 13 of this Regulation (preceding
Schedule 1), and

     (2)  The other plan must also provide in effect that 

               (a)  the legal owners of the pension fund of the other
plan are to hold all the assets transferred from the Plan to the other plan
and all investment income and capital appreciation derived from those
assets in trust, and to use them, for the sole purposes of providing
benefits and entitlements under the other plan and to meet the other plan's
administration costs, and

               (b)  those assets, investment income and capital
appreciation belong beneficially to the persons entitled to benefits under
the other plan.

     (3)  To avoid any doubt, benefits and entitlements are not less

provisions are agreed to in writing by each exiting participant who elects
to participate in the other plan under those defined contribution
arrangements, and

               (b)  the benefits and entitlements provided to each such
exiting participant are of equivalent value to those benefits and
entitlements to which the participant would be entitled if he did not agree
to those arrangements, with the valuations being determined as at the date
the exiting participant elects to participate under those arrangements.

Employees, etc. exit
     24.4   The employer exits the Plan only in relation to

               (a)  persons who were participants and who were
employees of the employer immediately before the time of exit and who do
not terminate with effect as at, or die at, the time of exit,

               (b)  spouses or former spouses of persons referred to in

benefits under the Plan accrued to the time of exit through persons
referred to in clause (a) or (b).

Effect of exit
     24.5   With effect as at the time of exit,

               (a)  the employer is to be treated as having ceased
participation as such in the Plan and as having commenced participation as
such in the other plan,

               (b)  exiting persons are to be treated as having ceased
participation or prospective or potential coverage under the Plan and as
having commenced participation or prospective or potential coverage, as the
case may be, under the other plan,

               (c)  all benefits and entitlements in respect of exiting
persons are to be treated as having been transferred from the Plan to the
other plan, and

               (d)  liabilities for benefits and entitlements in
respect of exiting persons are to be treated as having been transferred
from the Plan to the other plan.

Information and disclosure
     24.6(1)  At the earliest practicable time, the Minister, after
consulting with the Board, must report in writing to the  employer the
Minister's estimation, as at the time of exit and with respect to the
employer, of the apportionment of the Plan's assets and liabilities that
will be determined on the basis set out in section 24.82.

     (2)  Before the time of transfer and as soon as practicable, the
employer must provide written notice to each exiting participant regarding
the exit containing

               (a)  a summary of the other plan, including the relevant
benefits and entitlements under that plan,

               (b)  a description of the conditions that the other plan
is required by section 24.3 to meet and a certification by the employer
that the other plan meets those requirements, and

               (c)  the name of the employer's representative who can
provide more information to exiting participants on request.

     (3)  Before the time of transfer and as soon as practicable in each
case, the employer must submit to the Minister, in writing,

               (a)  certification by the other plan's actuary that the
other plan meets the requirements of section 24.3(1),

               (b)  a written opinion of the legal adviser of the
employer to the effect that the other plan meets the requirements of
section 24.3(2),

               (c)  certification by the employer that the disclosure
required by subsection (2) has been made, and

               (d)  a copy of the notice given under subsection (2).

     (4)  At the earliest practicable time, the Minister must provide to

Completion of purchases of service
     24.7(1)  Where an exiting participant made arrangements to acquire
service as pensionable service before the time of exit, has not fully paid
for the service being acquired and wishes to transfer the service not yet
paid for to the other plan, payment must be made for that unacquired
service before the time of exit.

     (2)  No service that has not been paid for may be transferred to the
other plan.

Exit costs
     24.8(1)  The Provincial Treasurer may charge the plan fund for all
reasonable costs, including the cost referred to in section 24.91 but
excluding any plan costs, incurred by the Minister, the Board and the
Provincial Treasurer before the completion of the exit, with respect to the
exit.

     (2)  The employer is liable to the plan fund for any costs charged to
the plan fund under subsection (1).

     (3)  Subject to subsection (4), the costs for which the employer is
liable under subsection (2) are to be deducted from the assets apportioned
to the employer under section 24.82 in accordance with section 24.82(2).

     (4)  As an alternative to having assets reduced as referred to in
subsection (3), the employer may elect in writing to the Provincial
Treasurer, as soon as practicable and in any case before the time of
transfer, to reimburse the plan fund directly for the costs for which the
employer is liable under subsection (2), in which case the employer must
pay those costs within 30 days of being charged for them by the Provincial
Treasurer.

Definitions for calculation purposes
     24.81(1)  The following letters designate the amounts used in the
calculations under this section and section 24.82, as determined in a
written actuarial valuation that is prepared for the purposes of the exit
as at the time of exit and that is approved by the Minister after
consultation with the Board:

               (a)  "A" means the Plan's accrued liabilities;

               (b)  "B" means the Plan's accrued liabilities in respect
of the exiting persons;

               (c)  "C" means the market value of the Plan's assets.

     (2)  For the purposes of subsection (1)(a), except so far as they
relate to the exiting persons, the Plan's accrued liabilities include the
amount, if any, by which liabilities in respect of service that is in the
course of being purchased over time and that, at the time of exit, has not
yet been paid for exceed the present value of the outstanding contributions
in respect of that service.

     (3)  For the purposes of subsection (1)(a) and (b), if so warranted
in the Minister's opinion, the Plan's accrued liabilities in respect of
exiting persons are to be calculated by limiting the pensionable salaries
of exiting persons to the maximum allowed by the compensation guidelines of
employers to whom the Public Service Act applies.

     (4)  The letter "D", as used in the calculation under section 24.82,
means the lesser of 

               (a)  the amount specified in a written actuarial
valuation, approved by the Minister, of accrued liabilities in the closed
plan as at the time of exit in respect of members of the closed plan who,
at the time of their last termination, were employees of the employer, and 

               (b)  the amount 

     if positive or, if not positive, 0.

Amount of assets for transfer
     24.82(1)  The assets to be apportioned to the employer and
transferred to the other plan as at the time of transfer are equal to

     plus interest from the time of exit to the time of transfer.

     (2)  Unless section 24.8(4) applies, the assets to be apportioned and
transferred under subsection (1) are to be reduced by an amount equal to
the costs referred to in section 24.8(2).

     (3)  The assets to be transferred from the Plan to the closed plan
are equal to D plus interest from the time of exit to the time of transfer.

     (4)  Interest under subsections (1) and (3) is payable on the basis
of the market rate of return earned by the plan fund, net of those
investment costs that are specified by the Provincial Treasurer for that
purpose, from the time of exit until the latest date to which that rate is
available, and on the basis of the rate of return earned by the
Consolidated Cash Investment Trust Fund for the remainder of the period to
the time of transfer. 

Order in Council effectuating transfers
     24.83   The Lieutenant Governor in Council may, if satisfied that
this Part has been met, order the transfers of assets referred to in
section 24.82 and shall, in the orders, specify the effective dates of
those transfers.

Nature of assets to be transferred
     24.84(1)  The transfers from the plan fund under section 24.83 are to
consist of such specific assets and to be in such of the following forms as
is decided by the Provincial Treasurer, namely

               (a)  in cash,

               (b)  on the basis of a prorated interest in the
investments of the plan fund valued at market value, or

               (c)  as a combination of the forms set out in clauses
(a) and (b),

     and where a transfer would require a significant liquidation of the
assets in a pooled fund, the transfer may include securities held by the
pooled fund.

     (2)  Where any assets transferred to the other plan under section
24.83 are interests in a pooled fund, the other plan must redeem those
interests in accordance with the guidelines established for the pooled fund
within one year of the time of transfer or within such longer period as is
agreed in writing between the employer and the Provincial Treasurer.

     (3)  The guidelines referred to in subsection (2) are exempt from the
Regulations Act.

Refund of excess contributions less benefit payments
     24.85(1)  At the earliest practicable time after the time of
transfer,

               (a)  if the amount resulting from the application of
subsection (2) is positive, the Provincial Treasurer shall pay from the
Plan to the other plan, and

               (b)  if that amount is negative, the legal owners of the
other plan shall pay from that plan to the Plan,

     an amount equal to that amount.

     (2)  The amount referred to in subsection (1) is equal to the amount
of 

               (a)  any contributions remitted after the time of exit
to the Plan in respect of each calendar month representing contributions
paid by the employer and exiting persons and other employees of the
employer, less

               (b)  any benefits paid after the time of exit from the
Plan in respect of that calendar month to exiting persons and other
employees of the employer,

     with interest from the end of the next month to the date of the
payment referred to in subsection (1), then aggregated over all the months
in the period from the time of exit to the date of that payment.

     (3)  Interest under subsection (2) is payable on the basis of the
market rate of return earned by the plan fund, net of those investment
costs that are specified by the Provincial Treasurer for that purpose, from
the month end referred to in subsection (2) until the latest date to which
that rate is available and on the basis of the rate of return earned by the
Consolidated Cash Investment Trust Fund for the remainder of the period
referred to in subsection (2).

Indemnific-ation
     24.9(1)  Before any assets are transferred under this Part, the
employer and the legal owners of the pension fund of the other plan must
indemnify the Crown in a written form acceptable to the Minister with
respect to any claims that may be made by any person that arise directly or
indirectly from the exit, including the fact of the exit's being
retroactive.

     (2)  The legal owners of the pension fund of the other plan indemnify 

               (a)  the Board and the members of the Board for any
damages or legal and other expenses incurred in defending any claim against
the Board or any Board member that arises directly or indirectly from the
exit, and

               (b)  the plan fund and the Plan's administrator and
trustee for any claims made by any person that arise directly or indirectly
from the exit.

     (3)  Subject to subsection (2), an indemnification by subsection
(2)(a) covers anything done by the Board or Board member, as the case may
be, in good faith in the exercise of powers, duties and functions under
this Part.

     (4)  To the extent permissible by law, any liability under an
indemnity under this section by the other pension fund's legal owners is to
be met from that pension fund itself.

Transfer of documents and records
     24.91   As soon as is practicable, the Minister shall transfer to the
administrator of the other plan, at the employer's cost, those documents
and records that the Minister holds as the administrator of the Plan, that
pertain to exiting persons and other employees of and relating to that
employer and that are needed for the administration of the other plan.

References in matrimonial property orders
     24.92   Where there is a reference to the Plan in a matrimonial
property order in respect of an exiting person, that reference is to be
treated, with effect from the time of exit, as a reference to the other
plan.

Liability for benefits
     24.93   The Crown is to have no liability in respect of benefits to
be provided by the other plan and the pension fund of the other plan is to
assume all such liability.

Extinguish-ment of rights
     24.94   On the exit, all the rights of the employer and of exiting
persons and other employees of and relating to that employer in relation to
the Plan are extinguished.

eligible for a Temporary Operator's Permit this allows you to operate a
motor vehicle in the Province of Alberta for a period of 21 days starting

Operator's Permit carries the same conditions and restrictions and is the
same class as your current operator's licence.

REINSTATEMENT CONDITIONS
There may be reinstatement conditions associated with this
suspension/dis-qualification. Until you comply with any and all
reinstatement conditions as set out by the Registrar, your driving
suspension/disqualification will remain in effect. A list of these terms
and conditions may be obtained at any Alberta Registry Agent.

You have the right to have this driving suspension/disqualification
reviewed by the Driver Control Board. A hearing before the Board can either

suspension/disqualification.

At the hearing, the Board shall consider any relevant sworn or solemnly
affirmed statements, the report of the peace officer, a copy of any
certificate of analysis and where an oral hearing is held, any relevant
evidence and information or presentations.  If you request an oral hearing
and fail to appear on the date and at the time and place arranged for the
hearing, without prior notice to the Board, your appeal is abandoned

OUT OF PROVINCE OPERATOR'S LICENCE
If you currently hold a valid operator's licence from a jurisdiction other
than from the Province of Alberta, you are not eligible for a Temporary
Operator's Permit. However, subject to any conditions and driving
privileges your current licence affords you, your disqualification will
commence on the 22nd day following the issue date as indicated on the face
of this form.
