Preamble
WHEREAS the Supreme Court of Canada recently decided certain questions on
the subject-matters of benefits payable to provincial judges and judicial
independence; and 

WHEREAS the 1998 and 2000 Judicial Compensation Commissions have made
recommendations respecting those benefits, including specifically pensions
and other retirement benefits, and also those for masters in chambers; and 

WHEREAS it is the intent of this Regulation generally to put into effect
those recommendations, so far as they relate to pensions and other
retirement benefits, and to bring the legislation into line with current 
income tax rules (so far as applicable) and, as to structure and
draftsmanship, other public sector pension legislation; 

THEREFORE the Lieutenant Governor in Council enacts as follows:

which, by virtue of Schedule 2, were liable to be made to the plan

and, notwithstanding the repeal of that Regulation by section 6(2), that
account is to continue in force, so far as necessary but without any
further addition of contributions, until that transfer is made.


Prevalence over repealed Regulations
4   Notwithstanding anything in section 31 of the Interpretation Act, to
the extent that this Regulation and the Regulations repealed by section
6(1) and (2) are inconsistent with reference to anything occurring before
the making of this Regulation, this Regulation prevails over those repealed

7   This Regulation, except to the extent that another commencement date is
specifically stated and except

liable is the cost of future benefit accruals after taking into account

reasonable time after receiving an actuarial valuation report under section
8 and following the recommendations of the actuary in the report, in
writing adjust the Government's contributions

accrue after a participant's maximum benefit accrual date or latest pension
accrual date, whichever occurs first, is reached.

the leave and returned to active judicial service as a sitting judge or
went on LTDI following the cessation of the leave,

     (b)  to the extent that the aggregate of all the periods of the
participant's leave without salary, before, on and after April 1, 1998,
does not exceed 2 years, and

     (c)  if the participant paid the requisite contributions under
section 11(2) in respect of the leave.

(4)  A person may not be credited with more than one year's pensionable
service in respect of service performed in a calendar year, regardless of
the nature and extent of the service so performed.

returned or paid to a person or transferred out of the Plan on a person's
behalf may not be taken into account as pensionable service.

number of days in the uncompleted fiscal year with respect to which
interest is to be paid and the applicable rate provided for by subsection

     (b)  commences during the 3-month period immediately following the
effective date of the pension.  

(3)  Subsection (1) or (2) does not apply to a person appointed as a
supernumerary judge of the Provincial Court unless the pension is liable to
suspension under that subsection as a result solely of work other than as a
supernumerary judge.


Suspension of pension on reappointment
48(1)  Where a pensioner receiving a pension is reappointed as a judge, the
pension is suspended from the day he or she again becomes a participant
until termination. 

(2)  The reappointed participant is entitled, on again terminating, to an
additional pension based solely on pensionable service accumulated after
the reappointment.

personal representative, he or she is deemed to have designated the
personal representative of the estate in the representative capacity.

(3)  Where,

     (a)  at the death of a person on whose death a benefit is payable,
there is no valid designation by  the deceased filed with the Minister, or

     (b)  after the death but before any payment is made under subsection
(4), there is filed with the Minister a valid  revocation by the deceased
of a designation filed with the Minister 

and no valid designation is filed with the Minister before any such payment
is made, the person entitled to receive any benefit payable on the death is
the deceased's spouse, if there is a surviving spouse, or the personal
representative of the deceased's estate, if there is no surviving spouse.

(4)  When a benefit is paid to a surviving spouse or the personal
representative of an estate by virtue of the operation of subsection (3),
the payment is validly made as against the Plan, the Minister, the Minister
of Finance and the Government notwithstanding that a designation is filed
after the payment is made, and the person who would have been entitled
under the designation has no right to any benefit as a result of the
designation.

(5)  A benefit paid on the death of any person otherwise than to the
personal representative of a deceased's estate is not part of the estate of
the deceased and is not subject to the claims of the deceased's creditors.

section to a benefit is subject to any rights given by Division 1 or 2 to
any other person.

   annual amount of pension   X                 in the month          
                                                                                           365

(3)  Subject to subsection (4), where a person in receipt of a pension
dies, the pension is payable to the person for the full month in which the
death occurred.

(4)  Subsection (3) does not have the effect of extending the term of any
guaranteed term pension.

(5)  Any reduction of a pension payable in the form specified in section
29(1)(b)(ii) or (c) or in section 29(1)(d), as it relates to section
29(1)(b)(ii) or section 21(1), as it incorporates those enactments,
resulting from a death is to be taken as occurring with effect from the
beginning of the month following that in which the death occurred.


Idem - conversion following death
51(1)  Where a pensioner who has chosen a guaranteed term pension dies
before the expiry of the guaranteed term and the person entitled to the
remainder of the pension payments requests the Minister in writing that
those payments be converted to a lump sum payment, the person so entitled
shall instead be paid the present value of the remaining pension payments.

(2)  Subsection (1) does not apply if the person entitled is the spouse or
a dependent minor child in relation to the deceased unless the Minister
grants the request for the conversion.

(3)  Where a person is to be paid the present value under this section and
there are pension payments outstanding after the date of death and before
the payment of the present value, the outstanding payments are to be made
first and the remaining payments are to be converted to a lump sum.


Continuation of existing pensions and pension rights
52   A person who was in receipt of or entitled to a benefit immediately
before April 1, 1998 continues, subject to this Regulation, to be entitled
to that benefit and in the same form and subject to the same obligations
that applied on that date and the same survivorship rights, if any, that
applied on that date continue to apply thereafter.

     NOTE:     If this declaration is signed before pension  commencement, it
has no effect until then.  It should reflect circumstances at pension
commencement.  Therefore, if stated circumstances change between now and
pension commencement, you should notify the Minister.  The form is dealing
with the situation as at pension commencement, despite the fact that the
declaration may be signed before or after pension commencement.  It may not
be signed more than 90 days before pension commencement in any case.

I,                (Full Name of "Spouse")                , of the
(Municipal Status) of (Municipality) in (Province/Territory/State/ Country

below) of  (Name of Pensioner)  ("the pensioner"), a retiring member of the
Provincial Judges and Masters in Chambers (Registered) Pension Plan or the
Provincial Judges and Masters in Chambers (Unregistered) Pension Plan, or
both ("the Plans").

2.   Being the pensioner's "spouse" means that I am of the opposite sex to
that of the pensioner and that as of pension commencement I meet one of the
following sets of conditions:

               (a)  I am married to and not judicially or otherwise
separated from the pensioner;

               (b)  I am married to and judicially or otherwise
separated from the pensioner but wholly or substantially dependent on the
pensioner;

               (c)  there is no one who falls within paragraph (a) or

                         (i)  I have lived with the pensioner for the

2 years immediately before pension commencement, there is a child born of
our relationship and throughout the 2-year period I have been represented

               (d)  there is no one who falls within paragraph (a), (b)
or (c) above, and I am married to but separated from the pensioner and not
wholly or substantially dependent on the pensioner.

3.   I understand that if in fact I am the pensioner's spouse at pension
commencement, the Plans require that the pensioner take a pension which,
after his or her death, will continue to be paid to me for life in an
amount that is 2/3 or more of the amount that would have been payable to
the pensioner had he or she continued to live.

4.   I also understand that if I sign this waiver form and it is filed
with the Minister I will have given up my rights to the survivor benefit
described above.  I further understand that signing this waiver means that
the pensioner may choose a pension that provides me with a lower survivor
pension benefit than described above or no survivor pension benefit at all
and that the pensioner has no obligation to grant me any benefit under
either Plan.

5.   Understanding everything described above, I nevertheless waive my
rights.

6.   I have read this form and understand it.

7.   The facts stated were true as at pension commencement (if that date
has passed) or will truly reflect circumstances at pension commencement to
the best of my knowledge and belief (if that date has not yet arrived).  In
the latter case, if the circumstances set out in this form do change before
pension commencement, I will notify the Minister immediately of the change.

8.   I have reviewed information on all the pension options available to
the pensioner, including those that would give me a survivor pension.

9.   I am signing this form of my own free will and not under any form of
pressure.

10.  The pensioner is not present while I am signing this form.

To waive my rights described above, I sign this waiver form.

And I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing it to be true
and knowing that it is of the same force and effect as if made under oath.
