Application
2(1)  This Regulation applies only to acts and omissions, and to land, 
in forest reserves unless otherwise stated or unless the context

(2)  Notwithstanding section 11(2)(a) of the Act, grazing rights in

Approval conditions
4   The Minister may attach any conditions considered appropriate to 
an approval given under this Regulation.
Grazing capacity and stocking of livestock on grazing land
5(1)  This section applies where the grazing capacity of a range 
allotment is being established for livestock for the purposes of this 
Regulation.
(2)  A 1000 pound or 455 kilogram cow, with or without calf at foot, is 
to be considered as one animal unit.
(3)  One animal unit month is the grazing needs of one animal unit 
over the period of one month on the particular range allotment in 
question.
(4)  The grazing capacity for livestock on a range allotment is to be set 
by the Minister, as a number of animal unit months.
(5)  The actual stocking rate for livestock on a range allotment is to be 
set by the Minister based on variations between
	(a)	the livestock animals, taking into account their ages, weight 
and livestock type, to be grazed there, and
	(b)	one animal unit.
Establishment, continuation and ending of preference quotas
6(1)  The Minister may establish a preference quota for an applicant 
for a regular permit who
	(a)	is an individual or a corporation,
	(b)	is a resident,
	(c)	in the case of a corporation that is not incorporated in 
Alberta, is entitled to carry on business in Alberta,

of the year,

more persons jointly, each of them must be eligible under subsection

an individual and a corporation.
(3)  The maximum and the minimum preference quota that the 
Minister may establish or allocate is 1000 and 100 animal unit months, 
respectively.
(4)  Notwithstanding anything in this Regulation except section 12 and 
subject to subsection (5), the maximum number of animal unit months 
that any one person is entitled to hold under all regular permits held by 
that person, regardless of how they are acquired, is 1000, and any 
transaction whereby that number purports to be exceeded is void.
(5)  A preference quota that was held under The Forest Reserves 
Regulations (AR 604/65) immediately before the commencement of 
this subsection continues in force, regardless of the number of animal 
unit months, for the period for which it was established or allotted 
unless and until it is changed pursuant to this Regulation.
(6)  A preference quota that is vacated reverts to the Crown in right of 
Alberta.

facts underlying the change and submit evidence of the changed 
circumstances.
(11)  On the making of an allocation under section 10 or a transfer 
under section 11, the permit relating to the preference quota is 
automatically cancelled.
(12)  When a regular permit expires, the Minister may, subject to the 
payment of any fee set under section 20(1) and provided that the 
permit holder continues to meet all the qualifications required to obtain 
a new regular permit, relax any other requirements of this section and 
renew the permit on the terms and conditions that apply with respect to 
the issue of a new regular permit.

prohibitions or restrictions under this Regulation or any order or 
direction under section 3.
(6)  It is a condition of any approval given by the Minister under

that person to pay the fee, if any, set by the Minister.
Qualifications to continue to hold permit

Minister considers appropriate, to that relative or to one or more or all 
of those relatives, as the case may be, who are eligible under 
subsection (5) and apply for the allocation.
(5)  A person is not eligible to receive an allocation under this section 
unless that person would be qualified under section 6(1)(a) to (f), if an 
applicant for a regular permit, to obtain a preference quota and pays 
any allocation fee set by the Minister.
Transfer of preference quota

of the Minister and on payment of the transfer dues payable under 
section 20, transfer that quota to a person who is eligible under 
subsection (2).

the number of animal unit months to exceed the number permitted by

maximum should be relaxed on account of extenuating circumstances.
(2)  The approval must set out the new maximum number of animal 
unit months allowed, resulting from the allocation or transfer.

Reduction or cancellation of quota and permit cancellation
14(1)  The Minister may reduce or cancel a preference quota

section 6(1)(a) to (f).
(2)  The Minister may, if in any one year the Minister considers a 
broader distribution of grazing rights desirable, reduce a preference 
quota by an amount not exceeding 10% provided that the reduction 
does not result in a quota of less than 100 animal unit months.

Minister shall cancel a preference quota where its holder is considered 
not to have used, or to have used sufficiently, the full quota exercisable

For information only:   Made by the Minister of Government Services 
(M.O. C:004/2005) on March 30, 2005 pursuant to section 446 of the Cooperatives 
Act. 
1   The Cooperatives Regulation (AR 55/2002) is amended 
by this Regulation.



2   The following is added after section 42.1:
Revival and continuance of Alberta incorporated associations under 
former Act
42.2(1)  In this section,
	(a)	"association" means a body incorporated by or under an 
Act of Alberta that was dissolved;
	(b)	"dissolution", except where the reference is to a 
dissolution under Division 2 of Part 14 of the Act, 
means dissolution on March 31, 2005 by section 434(1) 
of the Act, and "dissolved" shall be construed 
accordingly;
	(c)	"former Act" means the Co-operative Associations Act 
(RSA 2000 cC-28);
	(d)	"revival" means revival under and by virtue of this 
section;
	(e)	"revival for perpetual succession" means a revival for 
the purposes to which subsection (3)(a) applies;
	(f)	"revival for winding-up" means a revival for the 
purposes to which subsection (3)(b) applies.
(2)  An interested person may apply to the Director to have an 
association revived for either of the purposes referred to in 
subsection (3).
(3)  The purposes referred to in subsection (2) are, by virtue of this 
section, to effectuate a continuance of the association as a 
cooperative under the same name with retroactive effect from 
immediately after dissolution,
	(a)	as if the association had not been dissolved and as if it 
had been continued as a cooperative pursuant to section 
434 of the Act, or
	(b)	with a view to enabling or forcing the association, as a 
continued cooperative, to wind up its business and 
affairs and to dissolve under Division 2 of Part 14 of the 
Act.
(4)  An application for a revival must be made to the Director in the 
form set by the Director and, if for perpetual succession, before 
April 1, 2008.
(5)  An application for a revival for perpetual succession must be 
accompanied with
	(a)	articles of revival in the form set by the Director,
	(b)	the articles of the association in accordance with 
sections 5, 387, 388, 389, 392(1), 402(1), 407, 413 and 
419, as applicable, of the Act,
	(c)	a declaration signed by the directors that if and after the 
association is issued its certificate of revival the then 
cooperative will be organized and operated and will 
carry on business on a cooperative basis,
	(d)	if applicable, a declaration signed by the directors that if 
and after the issue of its certificate of revival the then 
cooperative will comply with the applicable Division of 
Part 18 of the Act,
	(e)	any outstanding annual returns required by section 21(8) 
of the former Act,
	(f)	any other documents whose provision the Director in 
writing requests, and
	(g)	the fee prescribed by section 1(d) of Schedule 1.
(6)  An application for a revival for winding-up must be 
accompanied with
	(a)	articles of revival in the form set by the Director,
	(b)	if so required by the Director, a declaration signed by 
the interested person that if and after the association is 
issued its certificate of revival the then cooperative will, 
subject to subsection (3)(b), be organized and operated 
and will carry on business on a cooperative basis,
	(c)	if applicable, a declaration signed by the interested 
person that if and after the issue of its certificate of 
revival the then cooperative will comply with the 
applicable Division of Part 18 of the Act,
	(d)	in the case of a revival ordered by a court for winding-
up, a copy of the court order directing the Director to 
revive the association,
	(e)	any other documents whose provision the Director in 
writing requests, and
	(f)	the fee prescribed by section 1(d) of Schedule 1.
(7)  Section 42.1 applies with respect to articles of revival 
submitted under this section.
(8)  While there remains any potential for an association to be 
continued as a result of revival for perpetual succession, the 
association is temporarily continued by this subsection from 
dissolution until immediately before the revival or until the 
deadline established by subsection (4) has passed without the 
application for revival having been made, whichever occurs first.
(9)  On receipt of documents referred to in subsections (4) and (5) 
or (6) that are satisfactory to the Director and on being satisfied 
that subsection (7), if applicable, has been complied with, the 
Director shall issue a certificate of revival for perpetual succession 
or for winding-up, as the case may be, in the form set by the 
Director.
(10)  For the purpose of issuing a certificate of revival, the Director 
may rely on the articles of revival and the declarations referred to 
in subsections (5) and (6).
(11)  If the Director issues a certificate of revival, then, with 
retroactive effect from immediately after its dissolution,
	(a)	the association
	(i)	is revived,
	(ii)	is continued in existence as if it had not been 
dissolved, and
	(iii)	becomes a cooperative as if it had been 
incorporated under the Act,
			and
	(b)	the certificate of revival is the instrument of 
incorporation of the cooperative,
and sections 437, 438 and 440 to 445 of the Act apply to it as if the 
continuance by this subsection were continuance under Part 19 of 
the Act, with references to the certificate of continuance being 
taken as references to the certificate of revival.
(12)  A certificate of revival is conclusive proof for the purposes of 
this Regulation and for all other purposes that 
	(a)	the association was continued as a cooperative by this 
section with retroactive effect on and from immediately 
after the association's dissolution, and
	(b)	the continuance was for the purposes, in the case of 
revival for perpetual succession, to which subsection 
(3)(a) applies or, in the case of revival for winding-up, 
to which subsection (3)(b) applies.
(13)  In the same manner and to the same extent as if it had not 
been dissolved, but subject to any reasonable terms that are 
imposed by the Director and to rights acquired by any person prior 
to the dissolution, an association revived as a cooperative by this 
section is, with effect from immediately after the dissolution and 
with no gap between the dissolution and the revival, restored to its 
position in law and equity immediately before the dissolution 
except for the prospective application to it of the Act instead of the 
former Act.
(14)  Without limiting the applicability of the remainder of the Act, 
Division 2 of Part 14 of the Act applies with respect to an 
association that has been revived and continued as a cooperative on 
the basis that references in that Part and the remainder of the Act to 
dissolution are to be taken to refer to a dissolution not by section 
434(1), but to a subsequent dissolution under Division 2 of Part 14, 
of the Act.
Continuance of extra-provincial associations as extra-provincial 
cooperatives
42.3(1)  In this section,
	(a)	"continuance" includes the continuance of registration 
as an extra-provincial association under the former Act 
into registration as an extra-provincial cooperative 
under the Act;
	(b)	"extra-provincial association" has the meaning assigned 
to it in section 60 of the former Act.
(2)  An interested person may, before April 1, 2006, submit an 
application to the Director to have the registration of an 
extra-provincial association that, immediately before the repeal of 
the former Act, was registered as such under the former Act and 
that did not comply with section 434(3) of the Act, continued under 
the same name under this section.
(3)  The applicant must provide to the Director
	(a)	articles of continuance of registration as an 
extra-provincial cooperative in the form set by the 
Director,
	(b)	a declaration, in the form set by the Director and signed 
by the directors, that the extra-provincial association 
wishes to continue its registration as an extra-provincial 
cooperative under the Act, and
	(c)	the fee prescribed by section 1(h) of Schedule 1.
(4)  While there remains any potential for the registration of an 
extra-provincial association to be continued as a result of 
subsection (6), its registration is temporarily continued by this 
subsection until that continuance or until the deadline established 
by subsection (2) has passed without the application for 
continuance of registration having been made, whichever occurs 
first.
(5)  On receipt of documents referred to in subsections (2) and (3) 
that are satisfactory to the Director, the Director shall issue a 
certificate of continuance of registration of an extra-provincial 
cooperative in the form set by the Director.
(6)  If the Director issues a certificate of continuance of registration 
of an extra-provincial cooperative under subsection (5), then, with 
effect from the issue of the certificate, the registration of the 
extra-provincial association is continued as the registration of an 
extra-provincial cooperative under the Act, and so far as is 
potentially applicable to the continuance of registration of an 
extra-provincial cooperative, sections 437, 438, 443 and 444 of the 
Act apply to it with suitable adaptations.
(7)  A certificate of continuance of registration of an 
extra-provincial cooperative is conclusive proof for the purposes of 
this Regulation and for all other purposes that the registration of 
the extra-provincial association was continued as the registration of 
an extra-provincial cooperative by this section with effect from the 
issue of the certificate.
Revival of associations dissolved under former Act
42.4(1)  Section 329 of the Act is to be treated as applying with 
respect to an association within the meaning of section 431(a) of 
the Act (deeming however the reference to section 59 of the former 
Act to be a reference to section 66 of it) that was incorporated by or 
under an Act of Alberta and dissolved under the former Act, as if 
that association were a cooperative dissolved under Division 2 of 
Part 14 of the Act.
(2)  The articles of revival required as a result of subsection (1) 
must additionally state in effect whether the revival is for the 
purposes to which section 42.2(3)(a) or section 42.2(3)(b) applies.
(3)  If the purposes of the revival are those to which section 
42.2(3)(a) in effect applies, the application under subsection (1) 
applies only to an association that was dissolved on or after the 
date that was 3 years before the commencement of this section and 
must be made within 3 years of the date when the dissolution took 
effect under the former Act.
