SUMMARY OF FUNDING RELIEF VOTING

Summary of Funding Relief Voting

December 13, 2013

I am very pleased to announce that today there has been a Regulation filed and passed into law which grants the General Synod Pension Plan temporary relief from funding any solvency deficiencies until after the results of an actuarial valuation to be conducted as at December 31, 2015.  This is the result we have been working toward and hoping for.

I would like to thank all the Plan members who returned voter cards to our office last summer.  Thank you for your patience in waiting for this process to run its course.  We will be mailing a letter to you with more details, early next week, and as always, if you have any questions, please contact our office.

Thank you to all the pension plan members who have voted over the past few weeks.  We have now sent the voting results to the Ministry of Finance, so we will no longer be recording any further votes which may come in.  Please come back to the website over the coming weeks, as we will continue to post our progress in the area of solvency funding relief for the GSPP, as the government proceeds with the work they now need to do.
