Regulation Number(s):
207/14
Bill or Act:
Pension Benefits Act
Summary of Decision:
This regulation extends the exemption that certain pension plans have from the "solvency concerns" test until December 31, 2017.

The exemption applies to jointly sponsored pension plans that are named in Regulation 909 and to specified Ontario multi-employer pension plans (SOMEPPs). These plans are not required to satisfy solvency funding requirements.

This extension allows further time for consultations with stakeholders regarding a new test to determine how often these plans will be required to file valuation reports.
