2.   if no amount is payable by you to the Debtor, file with the Clerk of

     if another Garnishee Summons regarding the same obligation against

the Court a statement to that effect indicating the expiry date of the
other Garnishee Summons.

     - AND -

3.   a)   serve a copy of the Garnishee Summons on the Debtor personally

NOTE:     Any subsequent monies paid into Court pursuant to this Garnishee
Summons should be accompanied by an accounting and a copy of this Garnishee
Summons.


SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS

1.   JOINT ENTITLEMENT

A Garnishee Summons as against a joint deposit account only attaches a
current obligation as defined in the Civil Enforcement Act.

If a joint deposit account or other obligation which is joint is being
garnished, and there is money owing by you to the Debtor, you must 

     a)   forward to the Clerk of the Court the Debtor's share of the
monies in the joint entitlement, based on an equal division of the monies
amongst all joint owners, less any garnishee fees as set out in the
Regulations, and

     b)   provide to the Clerk of the Court in your written response the
names and addresses of each joint obligee other than the Debtor, as shown
in your records, or a certificate stating that you have served a copy of
this Garnishee Summons on each joint obligee.


2.   FUTURE OBLIGATION

     When an amount or amounts may later become payable by you to the
Debtor under the attached obligation, you must reply to the Clerk of the
Court in writing stating 

     a)   the date or dates on which an amount is expected to become
payable,

     b)   the amount expected to be payable, and 

     c)   any contingencies that must be satisfied before an amount will
be payable. 

When the money becomes payable, pay the money to the Clerk of the Court in
accordance with number 1 of the General Instructions above.


3.   EMPLOYMENT EARNINGS

     If employment earnings are being garnished and there is money owing
by you to the Debtor, within 5 days after the end of the Debtor's last pay
period for any month during which this Garnishee Summons is in effect you
must pay to the Clerk of the Court the Debtor's net pay, less the Debtor's
employment earnings exemption (see Employment Earnings Exemptions listed
below), less the garnishee fee of $10, and deliver to the clerk a written
statement setting out
     
     a)   the Debtor's total employment earnings for the pay period that
ended in the month;

     b)   the amounts deducted from the total earnings to calculate the
Debtor's net pay for the month;

     c)   the number of the Debtor's dependants; 

     d)   the amount, if any, paid to the Clerk of the Court; 

     e)   the frequency of payment of the Debtor's employment earnings.

     If the Debtor's employment earnings are paid more frequently than
monthly, you may elect to comply at the end of each pay period instead of
the end of each month, in which case the minimum and maximum employment
exemption for each pay period is determined by multiplying the monthly
exemption by the number of days in the pay period and dividing the product
by 30. 


NET PAY

The Debtor's net pay for a particular month is the Debtor's total
employment earnings for pay periods that end in that month, less any
amounts you are required to deduct in respect of the Debtor's liability for
income tax, Canada Pension contributions, and unemployment insurance
premiums.


     Employment Earnings Exemptions

For the purposes of garnishing a Debtor's employment earnings from the
Debtor's employer, the following applies:

     a)   a Debtor's actual employment earnings exemption for any month
is the sum of

               i)   the Debtor's minimum exemption, and

               ii)  one half of any amount by which the Debtor's net
pay exceeds the Debtor's minimum exemption;

     b)   a Debtor's actual employment earnings exemption for any month
shall not exceed the Debtor's maximum exemption.

For a Debtor with no dependants, the minimum employment earnings exemption
is $800 and the maximum employment earnings exemption is $2400.  The
minimum and maximum employment earnings exemption increases by $200 for
each dependant.


DEPENDANTS

In addition to any person identified as a dependant by an order of the
Court, the following are dependants of the Debtor:

     a)   any person for whom a Debtor is entitled to claim a spousal
amount for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada);

     b)   any child of a Debtor who is under the age of 18 years and
lives with the Debtor;

     c)   any relative of a Debtor or of the Debtor's spouse or spousal
equivalent who lives with the Debtor, and, by reason of mental or physical
infirmity, is financially dependent on the Debtor.

For the purpose of calculating the amount payable to the Clerk of the
Court, you are entitled to rely in good faith on a written statement from
the Debtor identifying the Debtor's dependants.

NOTE:     In the case of judgments for alimony or maintenance, the Maintenance
Enforcement Act employment exemptions apply (See section 13(1) of the
Maintenance Enforcement Regulation) (AR 2/86).


     A calculation worksheet is available from the Clerk's Office to
assist you with the application of the employment earnings exemptions.

    To the Clerk:

The Creditor has a Judgment/Attachment Order against the Debtor, and a Writ
of Enforcement/Attachment Order has been registered at Personal Property
Registry as
