Application of this Part
30(1)  Subject to section 41, this Part applies with respect to the 
division and distribution of benefits where, as between pension 
partners, a matrimonial property order is filed with the Board, and

(2)  This Part applies only with respect to a matrimonial property 
order made on or after May 1, 2004.
Prevalence of this Part in relation to benefits
31(1)  Notwithstanding the Matrimonial Property Act or any other 
rule of law or equity to the contrary, the Court shall not make a 
matrimonial property order dividing or distributing a benefit or any 
portion of a benefit except in a manner that complies with this Part.
(2)  Nothing in subsection (1) prevents the Court from distributing, 
under the Matrimonial Property Act, property that is not a benefit 
in a manner that takes account of how a benefit is to be divided or 
distributed in compliance with this Part.
Effect of matrimonial property orders
32   Subject to this Part, the entitlement of any person to a benefit 
is subject to entitlements arising under a matrimonial property 
order filed with the Board.
Requirements for matrimonial property orders
33   A matrimonial property order must specify
	(a)	the beginning and end of the period that the benefit is 
considered to have jointly accrued for the purposes of 
the Matrimonial Property Act,
	(b)	whether or not there is to be a delayed division, and
	(c)	the division factor, which must not exceed 50%.
Division and distribution of benefits generally
34   Benefits must be divided between the pension partners, and 
the non-member pension partner's share distributed, in accordance 
with this Part and, subject to the foregoing, in accordance with the 
applicable matrimonial property order.
Total entitlement
35   The total entitlement, to be calculated as of the division date,
	(a)	if the member pension partner is not then vested, is 
equal to the value of the member pension partner's 
employee contributions,
	(b)	if the member pension partner has already commenced 
to receive a pension, is the pension itself,
	(c)	if the non-member pension partner is entitled to choose 
and chooses a delayed division, is,
	(i)	if the event date is not when the member pension 
partner dies, the greater of the commuted value of 
the member pension partner's pension and the 
value of the member pension partner's employee 
contributions, or
	(ii)	if the event date is when the member pension 
partner dies, the benefit payable under Division 2 
of Part 5 of the Plan's plan rules,
			or
	(d)	if the member pension partner is then vested and has not 
yet commenced to receive a pension and the 
non-member pension partner is not entitled to choose or 
does not choose a delayed division, is equal to the 
greater of the value of the member pension partner's 
employee contributions and the commuted value of the 
pension, calculated as if the member pension partner 
had terminated at the end date and on the assumption 
that the member pension partner will commence to 
receive the pension
	(i)	if pensionable age has not yet been reached, on the 
first day of the month following pensionable age, 
or
	(ii)	if pensionable age has already been reached,
	(A)	on the first day of the month following the 
date mentioned in the matrimonial property 
order, if such a date is so mentioned, or
	(B)	if not so mentioned, on the first day of the 
month following the day on which the order 
is made.
Total pre-division benefit
36   The total pre-division benefit is to be calculated, as of the 
division date, according to the following formula:
A = B x C 
              D
where
	A = 	the total pre-division benefit
	B = 	the total entitlement
	C = 	the aggregate of all the pensionable service accumulated 
by the member pension partner in the period of joint 
accrual
	D = 	the member pension partner's total pensionable service.
Non-member pension partner's share
37(1)  The non-member pension partner's share is to be calculated 
as the total pre-division benefit multiplied by the division factor.
(2)  Where the non-member pension partner's share is paid or 
transferred after the division date, interest is to be paid on it or it is 
to be re-computed in the same manner as the Plan's plan rules 
require, where applicable, in the case of a benefit paid or 
transferred after termination.
Distribution of non-member pension partner's share
38(1)  The non-member pension partner's share shall,
	(a)	if the member pension partner was not vested at the end 
date, and at the non-member pension partner's option, 
either be paid as a lump sum or transferred to a 
registered retirement savings plan belonging to the 
non-member pension partner,
	(b)	if at the end date the member pension partner was 
vested but was not yet within 10 years of pensionable 
age and has not yet commenced to receive a pension, be 
transferred to a locked-in retirement account belonging 
to the non-member pension partner, or
	(c)	if at the end date the member pension partner was 
vested and was within 10 years of or had already 
attained pensionable age and has not yet commenced to 
receive a pension, at the non-member pension partner's 
option, either
	(i)	be transferred to a locked-in retirement account 
belonging to the non-member pension partner,
	(ii)	if the event date is not when the member pension 
partner dies, be so transferred at the member 
pension partner's event date, or
	(iii)	if the event date is when the member pension 
partner dies,
	(A)	be paid, if the benefit at the death is not a 
pension, or
	(B)	be so transferred at that event date, if the 
benefit then is a pension.
(2)  Notwithstanding subsection (1), where the non-member 
pension partner is entitled to choose and chooses a delayed division 
and the member pension partner dies before the distribution is 
made, the benefit payable under Division 2 of Part 5 of the Plan's 
plan rules applies.
(3)  Notwithstanding subsection (1), where a pension has already 
commenced to be paid at the time the matrimonial property order is 
made, the non-member pension partner's share is to be paid 
directly to the non-member pension partner in the form of a 
pension which, for the purposes of the Plan, is a portion of the 
member pension partner's pension.
Adjustment of member pension partner's benefit
39(1)  References in this section to the member pension partner's 
benefit, if the event date is that individual's death, are to the benefit 
payable on the death.
(2)  After the division date, the Board shall adjust the member 
pension partner's benefit using the relevant calculations set out in 
this section.
(3)  If the member pension partner's pension commencement 
occurred before the making of the matrimonial property order, the 
member pension partner's pension as at the division date shall be 
decreased by the amount of the total pre-division benefit multiplied 
by the division factor.
(4)  If subsection (3) does not apply, the member pension partner's 
benefit shall be reduced at the member pension partner's event date 
to take into account the non-member pension partner's share in 
accordance with subsections (5) and (6).
(5)  If the benefit consists of employee contributions, the benefit 
shall be reduced by the sum of the non-member pension partner's 
share at the end date and interest thereon from the end date to the 
event date.
(6)  If the benefit consists of a pension, the pension shall be 
reduced by A where
A = B x C x D x E
	B = 	the total pre-division benefit, calculated on the 
assumption (whether so or not) that the member pension 
partner was vested at the end date
	C = 	the division factor
	D = 	the factor, equal to or greater than 1, representing the 
compound effect of the annual cost of living increases, 
if any, between the end date and the event date, actually 
applied for the purposes of the Plan under the plan rules
	E = 	the factor representing the reduction to be applied when 
pension commencement occurs before pensionable age 
that is applied for the purposes of this provision by the 
Board in respect of the Plan.
Bar against further claims
40   If the full amount of the non-member pension partner's share 
has been distributed pursuant to this Part,
	(a)	that pension partner has no further entitlement to any 
benefit or any other right under the Plan, and
	(b)	the Board and the Plan have no further obligation to that 
pension partner and have no liability to either pension 
partner or any other person by reason only of the fact 
that the matrimonial property order was complied with.
Disclosure of information
41(1)  For the purposes of this section,
	(a)	references to pension partners, member pension partners 
or non-member pension partners include pension 
partners or former pension partners, within the meaning 
of the plan rules, who are or were married to each other, 
where a matrimonial property order is being 
contemplated, and
	(b)	references to the end date, where the end date has not 
yet occurred, are to be taken to refer to the date chosen 
by the requesting pension partner and notified to the 
Board as the deemed end date.
(2)  The Board shall provide to both pension partners, as soon as 
reasonably practicable after receiving both a written request for it 
from either and proof that is satisfactory to the Board of their 
matrimonial relationship, including the date marking the beginning 
of the period of joint accrual and the end date, a written statement 
specifying
	(a)	an estimate of the total entitlement, calculated however 
as of the month in which the statement is prepared 
rather than the division date, where the member pension 
partner's pension commencement has already occurred, 
or the end date in all other cases,
	(b)	the first date of accumulation of pensionable service by 
the member pension partner under the Plan,
	(c)	the amount of pensionable service accumulated by the 
member pension partner up to the date referred to in 
clause (a) and the amount of pensionable service 
accumulated during the period of joint accrual,
	(d)	the last or latest date of pensionable service 
accumulated by the member pension partner, and
	(e)	other information whose disclosure is contemplated by 
subsection (5), on request for it.
(3)  The Board is not required to provide the statement referred to 
in subsection (2) more than once in a calendar year.
(4)  The Board shall provide to the member pension partner, as 
soon as reasonably practicable after the division takes place, a 
written statement containing
	(a)	the date the division became effective, and
	(b)	a summary and description of the remaining benefits to 
which the member pension partner will be entitled after 
the distribution of the non-member pension partner's 
share.
(5)  A non-member pension partner is a prescribed person for the 
purposes of section 25(2)(c) of the Act to the extent that the Board 
considers that the employment information (within the meaning of 
section 25(1)(c) of the Act) is required
	(a)	to determine the entitlement under this Part of a married 
or formerly married individual referred to in subsection 
(1), or
	(b)	to complete the division and distribution pursuant to a 
filed matrimonial property order.
Application to Court for clarification
42(1)  If, on the filing of a matrimonial property order, the Board 
is unable to comply with it because it is incomplete, it does not 
comply with this Part or there is doubt as to what exactly the Board 
must do to comply with it, the Board may apply to the Court to 
redress the situation arising from that inability so to comply.
(2)  An application to the Court under subsection (1) is to be by 
originating notice in the case of a consent order referred to in 
section 29(1)(h) or by notice of motion in the case of any other 
matrimonial property order, in either case supported by an affidavit 
on 7 days' notice or any shorter period that the Court allows.
(3)  The costs of an application under subsection (1) are to be borne 
by both or either of the pension partners, as decided by the Court 
and, to the extent that any such costs are paid by the Board, the 
Board has a right to set off the amount of those costs against any 
benefit payable under the plan to the pension partners, according to 
the Court's decision on the costs.
Assignment and protection from execution, etc.
43(1)  The division or distribution of a benefit under a matrimonial 
property order does not constitute an assignment, charge, 
anticipation, giving as security or surrender of an interest of or in 
the benefit or any rights for the purposes of the plan rules.
(2)  Section 19 applies with respect to both pension partners' 
shares.
Fees
44   The Board shall charge a fee of $500, which is to be paid in 
equal proportions by the pension partners by reducing the benefits 
payable to them.
Filing of documents with Board
45   For the purposes of this Part, a matrimonial property order is 
filed only if it or a certified copy of it is served on the Board by
	(a)	leaving it at the office of the Board with any of the 
Board's employees, or
	(b)	by sending it by registered or certified mail to the 
Board's office.

Act, 2004.

22   Schedules 1 and 3 are repealed and the following is 
substituted:
Schedule 1 
 
Determination of Minimum Distance Separation
Minimum Distance Separation (MDS)
The MDS is measured from the outside walls of neighbouring 
residences (not property line) to the point closest to the applicant's 
livestock facility, manure storage facility, catch basin, feeding pen or 
barn, or milking facility. Facilities associated with the livestock 
operation, such as feed handling area, feed storage area, office, water 
supply, the land on which manure, composting materials and compost 
is to be spread, and grazing areas are not considered to be part of the 
livestock facility for the purpose of determining the MDS. The MDS is 
calculated in metres as follows:

For new operations:
MDS = (odour production)K x odour objective x dispersion factor

For expanding operations:
MDS = (odour production)K x odour objective x dispersion factor x 
expansion factor

Odour Production:
Is the compilation of factors which take into account the nuisance 
value of the category of livestock, technology of production system 
and the number of animals. It is described as a Livestock Siting Unit 
(LSU).

Odour Objective:
This describes the sensitivity of neighbouring land uses.

Dispersion Factor: 
This allows for a variance to the MDS due to the unique climatic and 
topographic influences at the site.

Expansion Factor: 
This factor is determined by the Board. This factor only applies to 
expanding operations that are increasing the size of the facility to store 
more manure, composting materials and compost or to accommodate 
more livestock.

Exponent (K) = 0.365 for all categories or types of livestock.
Odour Production
Odour production is measured by Livestock Siting Units (LSUs). The 
Livestock Siting Unit (LSU) is the result of multiplying the total 
number of animals by the following factors:

Factor A: 
Nuisance value of the category or type of livestock.

Factor B: 
This factor is determined by the Board. This technology factor 
considers the effect the manure system will have on reducing the odour 
nuisance level. Unless information is provided to prove otherwise, the 
technology factor (Factor B) shall be the same as in Table 1.

MU Reciprocal: 
Amount of manure produced. (1/animal units)

LSU Factor = Factor A x Factor B x MU Reciprocal
LSU = LSU Factor x No. of Animals
Odour Objective
Each category reflects the sensitivity of neighbouring land uses and is 
determined as follows:

Category 1: 
Land zoned for agricultural purposes (e.g., farmstead, acreage 
residences).

Category 2: 
Land zoned for non-agricultural purposes (e.g., country residential, 
rural commercial businesses).

Category 3: 
Land zoned as large scale country residential, high use recreational or 
commercial purposes, as well as from the urban fringe boundary of 
land zoned as rural hamlet, village or town which has an urban fringe.

Category 4: 
Land zoned as rural hamlet, village or town without an urban fringe.

Category	Odour Objective
1	41.04       
2	54.72      
3	68.40      
4	109.44      
Dispersion Factor
This factor allows for a variance due to unique conditions that can 
influence dispersion. These are:

Topography Factor (DT): 
The effect of topographical features on air dispersion.

Screening Factor (DS): 
The effect of natural or constructed screening which reduces wind 
effects at the manure storage facility.

Micro-Climate (DW): 
Available meteorological data may demonstrate significant alteration 
in odour intensity or frequency of occurrence in relation to 
neighbouring land use. Some of these factors include temperature, 
humidity and wind direction and intensity.

Unless information is provided to prove otherwise, the dispersion 
factor shall equal 1.0.

Land Base Requirements
Tables 7 to 30 specify the required land base for the amount of 
manure, composting materials or compost that may be applied to a 
parcel of land, subject to the limitations noted below. Producers have 
the option of using these tables or submitting a nutrient management 
plan to show that they have the required land base for manure 
production. The tables are based on average soil fertility levels in the 
four soil zones and manure, composting materials or compost nutrient 
from typical production systems. The tables are based on a one-time 
application of manure, composting materials or compost based on 
nitrogen. The assumed supply of nutrients from manure, composting 
materials or compost are listed in Table 4. These land base manure 
application rates do not take into account other fertilizer nutrients 
which may be used.

Manure Production Volumes
Tables 5 and 6 contain average manure volumes expected from 
common categories and types of livestock. Volumes are from typical 
housing systems and include added water (spillage and fresh water) as 
well as bedding and spilled feed. These are variables and should be 
taken into account and adjustments made where appropriate. These 
volumes are used to determine the manure storage volumes as well as 
for determining manure nutrient amounts used for the land base 
requirements.
