war.
Coarse Language - The film contains profanity, threats, slurs,

Crude Content - The film contains the presence of material or 
humour that is unrefined or coarse and that may be seen as harsh, rude

that might shock or frighten a person.  These scenes might be found in 
the thriller, suspense or war genre.
Gory Scenes - The film contains the presence of graphic images of 
bloodletting or tissue damage, or both, and includes horror or war 
representations. The degree, frequency and intensity of these images 
will be factors in the classification decision.
Language May Offend - The film contains language that may be 
offensive to some groups.  For example, sacrilegious language such as

The film may contain portrayals of domestic violence, racism, 
religious matters, death or controversial social issues.

that reflect a more mature situation, such as drug use or abuse.
Not Recommended For Young Children - The film may be 
inappropriate for young children.  For example, the subject-matter 
could include the death of a family pet, a complicated family 
breakdown or images considered frightening or disturbing for the very 
young.
Nudity - The film contains the presence of images of full frontal, 
partial or rear nudity.  May be an advisory in several film

repetition, and whether the nudity is in a non-sexual or sexual context.
Sexual Content - The film contains the presence of images of, or 
verbal references to, sexual themes, sexual innuendo, fondling, implied 
sexual activity or simulated sexual activity, depending on the 
classification category to which it is affixed.
Sexually Suggestive Scenes - The film contains scenes that 
imply rather than depict that sexual activity is taking place or has 
occurred.
Sexual Violence - The film advises of the degradation of an 
individual in a sexual manner, and may contain images of 
non-consensual acts with the intent to inflict harm, for example, 
simulated sexual assault or the use of threat to force compliance in 
sexual activity, or both.
Substance Abuse - The film contains descriptive scenes depicting 
the use of illegal substances, the excessive use of tobacco or the use of 
alcohol resulting in impairment.
Violence - The film may refer to restrained portrayals of 
non-graphic violence, portrayals of violence with some bloodletting or 
tissue damage, or both, and frequent more prolonged portrayals of 
violence resulting in bloodletting or tissue damage, or both.  The 
degree, frequency and intensity of the acts of violence will be factors 
in the classification decision.
NOTE:   The words "Crude" and "Gory" may be applied in 
combination with other advisories, such as "Crude Sexual Content", 
"Crude Coarse Language" or "Gory Brutal Violence" to indicate a

1   The Civil Enforcement Regulation (AR 276/95) is 
amended by this Regulation.

2   The following is added after section 40:
Registered plan payment 
40.1(1)  In this section, "net registered plan payment" means the 
amount determined under subsection (3).
(2)  For the purposes of garnishing an enforcement debtor's 
registered plan payment, the following applies:
	(a)	in any month during which a garnishee summons is in effect, 
the garnishee summons attaches the amount, if any, by which 
an enforcement debtor's net registered plan payment for the 
month exceeds the enforcement debtor's actual registered 
plan payment exemption for the month;
	(b)	the registered plan payment that is attached by a garnishee 
summons in any month must be paid by the garnishee to the 
clerk who issued the garnishee summons;
	(c)	at the end of each month during which a garnishee summons 
is in effect, the garnishee shall deliver to the clerk who issued 
the garnishee summons a statement setting out
	(i)	the enforcement debtor's total registered plan payments 
during the month,
	(ii)	the number of the enforcement debtor's dependants, and
	(iii)	the particulars of any amounts deducted in calculating 
the enforcement debtor's net registered plan payment 
for the month;
	(d)	subject to clause (e), an enforcement debtor's actual 
registered plan payment exemption for any month is the sum 
of 
	(i)	the enforcement debtor's minimum exemption, and
	(ii)	1/2 of any amount by which the enforcement debtor's 
net registered plan payment exceeds the enforcement 
debtor's minimum exemption;
	(e)	an enforcement debtor's actual registered plan payment 
exemption for any month must not exceed the enforcement 
debtor's maximum exemption;
	(f)	if the enforcement debtor receives a registered plan payment 
from more than one source, the Court on application may 
reduce or eliminate the enforcement debtor's actual 
exemption that is applicable to any source of a registered 
plan payment;
	(g)	a garnishee's compensation for dealing with the garnishee 
summons as permitted under the Act must always be 
included in the calculation of the amount attached by a 
garnishee summons, but may actually be deducted from the 
enforcement debtor's registered plan payment only where the 
debtor's net registered plan payment exceeds the 
enforcement debtor's actual exemption.
(3)  The net registered plan payment is the registered plan payment 
less any amounts deducted or withheld pursuant to the Alberta 
Personal Income Tax Act and the Income Tax Act (Canada).
(4)  For the purposes of determining, with respect to a debtor's 
registered plan payment, the actual exemptions to which a debtor is 
entitled, a garnishee may assume that the debtor does not have any 
dependants other than those persons that the debtor has, in a written 
statement given to the garnishee, identified as dependants of the 
debtor.
(5)  Except as otherwise ordered by the Court, the garnishee, if 
acting in good faith, is entitled to rely on the written statement given 
to the garnishee by the debtor under subsection (4).
Minimum and maximum exemptions
40.2(1)  Subject to this section, for the purpose of determining an 
enforcement debtor's minimum and maximum registered plan 
payment exemption under section 40.1(2)(d),
	(a)	the minimum exemption is $800 plus $200 per dependant, 
and
	(b)	the maximum exemption is $2400 plus $200 per dependant.
(2)  Where an enforcement debtor's registered plan payment from a 
particular source varies substantially between months by reason that 
the enforcement debtor receives a registered plan payment 
	(a)	at intervals in excess of one month,
	(b)	at irregular intervals, or
	(c)	in irregular amounts,
the Court, on application, may increase the minimum or maximum 
exemption for any particular month, so that the enforcement debtor's 
total exemptions over the course of the garnishment proceedings will 
approximate what they would have been if the enforcement debtor's 
registered plan payments had been uniformly distributed over the 
relevant months.
(3)  The Court, on application, may modify the minimum or 
maximum registered plan payment exemption to which an 
enforcement debtor is entitled.
(4)  In considering an application under subsection (3), the Court 
must take into consideration at least the following:
	(a)	the family responsibilities of the enforcement debtor;
	(b)	the personal circumstances of the enforcement debtor;
	(c)	the conduct of the enforcement debtor in the carrying out of 
the enforcement debtor's financial affairs;
	(d)	the earnings of the enforcement debtor's dependants.
