Minister declares the security to be forfeited.

(2)  The Minister must, in accordance with subsection (1), distribute the
principal amount of the security to claimants who have valid unpaid claims
against the fund-raising business.

(3)  If the principal amount of the security is insufficient to pay all of
the valid unpaid claims, the Minister must pay out the money on a pro rata
basis to those claimants.

(4)  If there is a dispute among persons who have valid unpaid claims
concerning the amount they should receive from the principal amount of the
security under subsection (2) or (3), the Minister may pay all or part of
the principal amount into the Court of Queen's Bench, and the Court may
determine the amounts to be paid.


Remainder of security proceeds
27   If the whole of the principal amount is not required to pay valid
unpaid claims, the Minister must pay the amount that remains,

fund-raising business that submitted it and no valid unpaid claims have
been received by the Minister in respect of the fund-raising business while
the security was in force or within 2 years after the security ceases to be
in force, the Minister must return the security to the fund-raising
business.


Extinguish- ment of late claims

in accordance with sections 26 and 27 or returned a cash security in
accordance with section 28, the Minister must refuse to accept an
application under section 14 or 25 in respect of the security, and any
