with this section.

     (2)  The administrators of the exporting and of the importing Plans
shall have an actuarial valuation performed of their respective Plan as at

and assumptions as were used to perform the 1998 year-end actuarial
valuation of the Plan and based on pensionable service accrued up to  the
end of 1998, to determine the amount that will be needed to fund the
liabilities in respect of the persons transferred under section 16.4(2) on
the one hand and section 16.4(4) on the other hand with respect to service
that is recognized as pensionable service, and the benefits that were in
place up to the end of 1998, taking into account any necessary adjustments
for outstanding contributions in respect of prior service referred to in
section 16.5(3)(c) not yet paid for.

     (3)  The amount needed to fund the liabilities referred to in
subsection (2) as at the end of 1998 is to be assumed to be the aggregate
amount determined by the 2 actuaries under subsection (2), divided by 2.

referred to in subsection (2) is the aggregate of the following:

               (a)  the amount calculated under subsection (3) for that
group;

               (b)  interest on that amount for the whole of the year
1999 on the basis of the average of the market rates of return earned by
the exporting and the importing Plans' plan funds during that year net of
those investment costs that are specified by the Provincial Treasurer for
that purpose;

               (c)  contributions made by or in respect of the
transferred persons that were due during 1999;

               (d)  interest on the contributions referred to in clause
(c) to the end of 1999 on the basis specified in section 79 of the
exporting Plan in respect of 1999;

               (e)  interest on the aggregate of the amounts determined
under clauses (a) to (d) on the basis of the average market rate of return
earned by those 2 plan funds, net of those investment costs, from January
1, 2000 until the latest date up 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 date of payment.

     (5)  The transfers from the exporting Plan's plan fund under this
section are to consist of such specific assets and to be in such of the
following forms as is directed by the Provincial Treasurer, namely

               (a)  in cash,

               (b)  on the basis of a prorated interest in the
investments of the exporting Plan's 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.

Report of calculations to Boards
     16.8   The Minister shall, as soon as practicable, report to the
Boards for the exporting and the importing Plans the calculations made
under section 16.7 for the purposes of the transfers.

References in matrimonial property orders
     16.9   Where there is a reference to the exporting Plan in a
matrimonial property order in respect of a transferring person, that
reference is to be treated, with effect from the time of transfer, as a
reference to the importing Plan.
