PART II
ALLOTMENTS

Entitlement and criteria for allotment of quota

3   No person is entitled to be allotted a quota for a category of chicken broiler unless such person has been allotted a basic allotment and a market allotment for that category by the Board.

Facility requirement

4   Subject to section 5, each applicant for allotment of a quota and an allotment must be the registered owner or the sole operator of a facility that meets all of the requirements or standards for buildings and equipment established by the Board from time to time.

Conditional allotment

5   The Board may allot a quota and an allotment conditional upon the acquisition of a facility within a specified period of time.

Allocation to new entrants

6   From time to time the Board may select an individual or a Hutterite Colony to become a registered producer and may offer to allot a quota, basic allotment, and a market allotment for a category of chicken broiler to such person. In selecting such persons the Board may establish a system for receiving applications from such persons and a method of selecting such persons from among the applicants.

Each application shall be in writing in a form prescribed by the Board and must be signed by the applicant and accompanied by the processing fees established by the Board, and must be forwarded to the head office of the Board.

In the event the Board offers to allot a quota, a basic allotment, and a market allotment for a category of chicken broiler to a person, and such person does not accept the terms and conditions proposed by the Board in making such offer within the time specified by the Board, or in the event a person fails to comply with any term or condition established by the Board in making such offer or allotment to the person, the Board may withdraw such offer and allotment.

No individual and no Hutterite Colony shall be eligible to be selected for an allocation under this section if that individual or that Colony is or at any time has been a registered producer or has had an interest, direct or indirect in a registered producer. For the purpose of this provision any person who is or was a partner or a shareholder of an entity that is or was a registered producer at a point in time shall be deemed to have an interest in that registered producer at that time.

The fact that

(a) the parent of an individual is or at any time has been a registered producer or has had an interest, direct or indirect in a registered producer; and

(b) a Hutterite Colony was established from the membership of a Hutterite Colony which is or at any time has been a registered producer or has had an interest, direct or indirect in a registered producer;

shall not in itself disqualify an individual or a Hutterite Colony from being eligible to be selected under this section.

Determination of basic allotments by category

7   Subject to the provisions of this Order, a registered producer's basic allotment for each category of chicken broiler shall be equal to the number of kilograms of chicken broiler shown opposite such producer's name in the column for that category on the Basic Allotment List.

Preservation of production diversity

7.1   No person will be permitted to make an application made under Part X, XII, or XIII of this Order if the effect of the approval of the application would result in that person or a person associated with that person having a direct or indirect interest in a basic allotment or basic allotments of a category in excess of the acquisition limit for that category.

M.R. 177/2018

Allocation of market allotment from time to time

8   Subject to the provisions of this Order, each registered producer shall be allotted a market allotment for each category of chicken broiler for which such producer has been allotted a basic allotment.

Calculation of market allotment

9   The market allotment of each registered producer whose name is set out on the Basic Allotment List for each category of chicken broiler for which such producer has been allotted a basic allotment shall be calculated from time to time as follows:

(a) Subject to clauses (b) and (c), the market allotment allotted to each registered producer for a category shall be equal to the basic allotment allotted to such producer for that category;

(b) If the aggregate of all chicken broilers of a category which could be produced if allocations were made in accordance with clause (a) (after estimating the anticipated production of chicken broiler of a category raised in Manitoba during any period of time by persons who are not registered producers and any adjustments as a result of the application of Parts III, III.1, V and VI) would be more than the anticipated market demand for chicken broilers of that category raised in Manitoba during any period of time, the market allotment allotted to each registered producer for that category will be determined by the board in a manner that all registered producers share, as nearly as possible, a pro-rata reduction from the market allotment that they would have received under clause (a) (applying the equivalent calculation set out in section 20) in a manner that the board deems reasonable, so that the anticipated market requirements for chicken broiler of that category during that period of time ought not to be exceeded;

(c) If the aggregate of all chicken broilers of a category which could be produced if allocations were made in accordance with clause (a) (after estimating the anticipated production of chicken broiler of a category raised in Manitoba during any period of time by persons who are not registered producers and any adjustments as a result of the application of Parts III, III.1, V and VI) during any period of time would be less than the anticipated market demand for chicken broiler of that category raised in Manitoba during that period of time (hereinafter called the "Shortfall"), the market allotment allotted to each registered producer for that category will be determined by the board in a manner so that the market allotment allotted to each registered producer for each category will be equal to the basic allotment allotted to the registered producer for that category, and unless the board otherwise directs, the Shortfall will be allotted by

(i) approximately 1/3 of the Shortfall or a lesser amount as the Manitoba council may approve as basic allotment and an equal market allotment to selected persons wishing to engage in chicken broiler production who have applied for registration and an allotment on the terms that the board deems proper; provided no person shall be entitled to an allotment in excess of 30,000 kilograms of Regular chicken broiler (or the equivalent of Cornish game hen or Roasters, or a combination thereof, applying the equivalent calculation set out in section 20) under this provision, and

(ii) allotting the balance of the Shortfall as basic allotment and an equal market allotment to registered producers who have applied for an increase in basic allotment as follows; 50% of the balance of the Shortfall on an equal share basis to each registered producer, and 50% of the balance of the Shortfall on a pro rata basis to each registered producer based on the basic allotment of each registered producer;

provided however that in the event the board is of the opinion that all or a portion of the Shortfall is temporary in nature, the board may allot the Shortfall as market allotment to registered producers on a pro rata basis based on the basic allotment of each registered producer.

In the event a registered producer is associated with one or more other registered producers, for the purpose of allocating part of the Shortfall on an equal share basis, those registered producers will be treated as single registered producer and the equal share amount will be allocated on a pro rata basis between those associated producers.

Any allotment of a share of the Shortfall made pursuant to subclause (c)(i) or (ii) will be conditional upon the selected person or the registered producer satisfying the board that the party is the registered owner or the sole operator of a facility that meets all of the requirements and standards for buildings or equipment established by the board for the purpose of producing the party's proposed allotment of a share of the Shortfall within 24 months of the date of the receipt of notice from the board of the proposed allotment.

M.R. 110/2007; 136/2015; 125/2017; 177/2018

Limitation on marketing quotas

11   No producer is entitled to be allotted a marketing quota in any marketing cycle that would be in excess of the market allotment allotted to such producer, less any quantity of chicken broilers marketed by such producer in interprovincial or export trade in any marketing cycle.

Determination of production quotas

12   The production quota of a registered producer for each marketing cycle for each category of chicken broiler for which that producer has been allotted a market allotment shall be equal to the number of chicken broiler determined

(a) for Cornish game hen, by dividing the market allotment allotted to the producer for Cornish game hen for that marketing cycle by 1.15 and multiplying the resultant figure by 1.07;

(b) for Regular chicken broiler, by dividing the market allotment allotted the producer for Regular chicken broiler for that marketing cycle by 1.75 and multiplying the resultant figure by 1.07; and

If such an application is approved, the basic allotment for the new category shall be calculated and allotted by dividing the basic allotment of the category being converted by the number of weeks in the minimum marketing cycle of such category, and multiplying the result by the number of weeks in the minimum marketing cycle of the new category, provided that

(a) if the category being converted is Cornish game hen and the new category is Regular chicken broiler, the new basic allotment shall be reduced by multiplying the second result by .8405;

Mitigation from reduction

22   The Board may reduce the reduction or postpone the reduction or exempt a producer from the reduction referred to in section 21 in the event the producer has paid all levies imposed on such producer with respect to such marketings pursuant to the Chicken Broiler Penalty Levies Regulation in the manner specified in that regulation, or in the event the Board has waived the application of all or a portion of the levy imposed on such producer pursuant to that regulation.

Reduction of basic allotment for undermarketings

23   Where a producer fails to market a total quantity of any category of chicken broiler equal to the market allotment allotted to such producer for that category for five (5) consecutive marketing cycles, the basic allotment allotted to such producer for that category shall be reduced to the greatest number of the actual kilograms of chicken broiler of that category marketed by such producer in any of those marketing cycles.

Automatic catch up

24   Where a producer markets less than the market allotment allotted to such producer during a marketing cycle, such producer's market allotment for the subsequent marketing cycle shall be temporarily increased by an amount equal to such undermarketings, up to a maximum of 5% of the subsequent preliminary allotment prior to such adjustment.

Application for special catch up

25   Where a producer's market allotment is temporarily increased as a result of the application of section 24, and such temporary increase is less than the amount of the undermarketings of the producer in the marketing cycle during which such producer undermarketed, the producer may apply to the Board for a Temporary Market Allotment Permit in an amount equal to such difference. In the event such an application is granted by the Board in whole or in part, the Board will indicate the period or periods for which such Temporary Market Allotment Permit is effective, and the amount of such Temporary Market Allotment Permit for such period or periods.

Force majeure and stand downs

26   The Board may exempt from the provisions of sections 23 or 24 any producer who

(a) can satisfy the Board that such producer placed a sufficient number of appropriate chicks that ought to have enabled such producer to market the full market allotment of chicken broiler of that category allotted to such producer;

(b) can satisfy the Board within a reasonable period of time after the end of any marketing cycle that such producer was unable to market the full market allotment of chicken broiler of that category allotted to such producer because such producer's facility was damaged due to fire or other causes beyond such producer's control, or because such producer's chicken broilers were subject to disease (as verified by a qualified veterinarian) or because major repairs and/or renovations to such producer's facility resulted in the temporary curtailment of production (provided an application has been received at least 9 weeks in advance of the commencement of such major repairs and/or renovations being relied upon), or because of suffocation of such producer's chicken broilers (verified by a veterinarian certificate), or because of a lack of replacement chicks, or because of the serious illness or death of the producer; or

(c) has otherwise obtained permission from the Board in writing to reduce such producer's marketings for a period of time, subject to such terms and conditions as the Board may establish at the time such permission is granted.

Provided the number of quota units offered for cancellation are at least 30,000 quota units, such notice shall also be mailed to each person on the Notification List.

7(6)   A person wishing to submit a Bid on a Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program must do so in writing, either by letter or by telefax, in a form satisfactory to the Designated Staff, to the Board's head office, which must be received prior to 4:00 p.m. of the last working day before the month in which the Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program is to be held.

Each Bid on a particular Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program must include the following information:

(a) the number of quota units requested for allotment;

(b) the category of the quota units requested;

(c) the administration fee, to the nearest cent per quota unit, which the bidder is willing to pay upon allotment of the quota units requested for allotment;

(d) the name, address and signature of the bidder;

(e) the Producer Registration Number of the bidder, where applicable.

Only one quantity of quota units may be specified in any Bid.

A registered producer may indicate on a Bid, in a form satisfactory to the Designated Staff, that, if the Bid is successful, a portion of the quota units requested are to be allocated to one or more other registered producers provided that the provisions of section 8 are met by each such registered producer.

In order for a Bid to be eligible to be processed on a Program, the bidder must submit a separate bank draft or credit union primary order payable to the Board (or other method of payment or security for payment acceptable to the Designated Staff) representing the full amount of the administration fee such bidder proposes to pay in connection with that Bid which must be received at the Board's head office no later than 4:00 p.m. of the last working day before the month in which the Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program is to be held.

7(7)   In the case of an omission or defect in a Bid or in an Offer the Designated Staff may not make changes or additions to such Bid or Offer, and the Bid or Offer will be rejected. A member of the Designated Staff shall attempt to contact the bidder or offeror and to advise him/her of such rejection. The fact that a Bid or an Offer is rejected shall not preclude the bidder or offeror from submitting a subsequent Bid or Offer.

7(8)   A Bid may be amended or withdrawn, provided such withdrawal or amendment is in writing and in the form of a letter or a telegram or a telefax satisfactory to the Designated Staff, sent by the bidder, and is received at the head office of the Board prior to 4:00 p.m. of the last working day before the month in which the Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program is to be held. Such withdrawal or amendment must be clear and unambiguous and must identify the bidder by name and by Producer Registration Number, where applicable, and must specify the Bid that is to be withdrawn or amended.

Any Bid which is received after any deadline for submission for that Program will be rejected by the Designated Staff.

7(9)   As provided in section 67 of this Order, the Designated Staff may refuse to accept or may postpone processing of any Bid or any Offer. Any decision to postpone the processing of a Bid or an Offer, or to reject a Bid or Offer made by the Designated Staff shall be final. The Designated Staff may also establish terms and conditions before a Bid or an Offer will be processed in the future. Any person who is not satisfied with the terms and conditions established by the Designated Staff before a Bid or Offer will be processed in the future may appeal such decision in writing to the Board.

7(10)   On each Reallocation Day, the Designated Staff shall qualify all valid Bids for the quota units offered for cancellation where the administration fee set out in a Bid is at least equal to the minimum retirement payment set out in the Offer. In the event only one such qualified Bid is received for the quota units offered for cancellation, that Bid will be deemed to be the successful Bid. In the event more than one such qualified Bid is received for the quota units offered for cancellation, the Bid offering the highest administration fee per quota unit will be deemed to be the successful Bid. In the event two or more such qualified Bids offering the highest administration fee per quota unit are identical, the Designated Staff shall conduct a lottery among such identical Bids to determine the successful Bid.

In the event the successful Bid offering the highest administration fee per quota unit is less than the number of quota units offered, the qualified Bid offering the next highest administration fee per quota unit where the administration fee is at least equal to the minimum retirement payment set out in the Offer will be deemed to be the next successful Bid with respect to all or a portion of the balance of the quota units offered for cancellation.

To the extent that the aggregate of the quota units comprising the qualified Bids deemed to be successful aggregate less than the number of quota units offered for cancellation, the qualified Bid offering the next highest administration fee per quota unit where the administration fee is at least equal to the minimum retirement payment set out in the Offer will be deemed to be the next successful Bid with respect to all or a portion of the balance of the quota units offered for cancellation, and such process shall be repeated until the successful Bids aggregate the number of quota units offered for cancellation. As a result of this process, in the event two or more such qualified Bids offering the highest administration fee per quota unit are identical, and the number of remaining quota units offered for cancellation are less than the aggregate of such Bids, the Designated Staff shall distribute the quota units rateably among such identical Bids.

In the event, as a result of the above procedure, the successful Bids still aggregate less than the number of quota units offered for cancellation the Designated Staff shall then qualify all valid Bids for the quota units offered for cancellation where the administration fee set out in the Bid is less than the minimum retirement payment set out in the Offer. The qualified Bid in this second grouping offering the next highest administration fee per quota unit will be deemed to be the next successful Bid with respect to all or a portion of the balance of the quota units offered for cancellation and such process shall be repeated until such successful Bids aggregate the number of quota units offered for cancellation. As a result of this process, in the event two or more such qualified Bids from this grouping are identical, and the number of remaining quota units offered for cancellation are less than the aggregate of such Bids, the Designated Staff shall distribute the quota units rateably among such identical Bids. In the event, as a result of this second procedure the aggregate administration fees which would be payable upon allotment of the quota units requested for allotment is less than the aggregate minimum retirement payment requested with respect to the quota units offered for cancellation, the Program shall be cancelled and the Offer and all Bids shall be deemed to be unsuccessful.

7(11)   Following the operation of a Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program, the Designated Staff shall report to the Board particulars of the Offer, the number of Bids received, the number of quota units in each Bid, the administration fee offered with each Bid, and any particulars of the successful Bid(s). The Board will review such report and if satisfied, in its sole discretion, that there have been no irregularities or deficiencies in the operation of that Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program, the Board may pass a resolution to accept such results.

Following the acceptance of the results of a Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program, the Board will pass a resolution to allot quota units to the successful bidder(s) and to cancel quota units of the successful offeror in order to implement such results and will determine the effective date or the process for determining the effective date to apply to such allotment(s) and to such cancellation(s).

In the event a successful bidder indicated on the Bid that a portion of the quota units are to be allotted to another registered producer or producers, the Board will allocate the quota units in accordance with such indication.

The allotment of quota units to a successful bidder who is a registered producer will be effective as of the first day of the marketing cycle of that bidder which occurs after the effective date established by the Board for such allotment.

The allotment of quota units to a successful bidder who is an eligible person will be effective upon a date satisfactory to the Board and the eligible person for the commencement of the eligible person's first marketing cycle.

The cancellation of quota units allotted to a successful offeror will be effective as of the last day of the marketing cycle of that offeror which occurs after the effective date established by the Board for such cancellation.

7(12)   Following the Board's consideration of the results of a Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program, each participant in the Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program will be advised in writing by the Designated Staff whether such participant's Offer or Bid was successful, and if the Bid or Offer was successful, the effective date of the allotment or cancellation.

7(13)   All funds submitted by unsuccessful bidders and all excess administration fees submitted by successful bidders as proposed administration fees will be returned to such bidder.

Limits on bids and offers

8   An Offer which would result in the remaining basic allotment allocated to that offeror being reduced to a level below 30,000 kilograms of chicken broiler for that category will be rejected by the Designated Staff. Any offeror allotted a basic allotment of 30,000 kilograms of chicken broiler of a category or less must offer to cancel all such quota units of that category to be eligible to be an offeror on the Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program.

No Offer of less than 1,000 quota units will be processed.

A successful bidder will not subsequently be eligible to receive a retirement allowance in connection with the cancellation of the equivalent number of quota units under the System if all quota units allotted to such producer are cancelled within five years of such successful Bid. In the event such person subsequently submits an Offer of all quota units allotted to such person during such five year period, an equivalent number of quota units shall be debited against the number of quota units offered, so that the offeror will only be entitled to receive a retirement payment with respect to the balance of such quota units, and the quota units so debited shall be credited to the Transfer Assessment Pool.

A person who has been allocated an increase in basic allotment under subclause 9(c)(i) of this Order shall not be entitled to submit an Offer which would result in the basic allotment allotted to such person being reduced below the level established prior to such allotment for a minimum of five years following the effective date of such allotment.

No Bid shall be processed if the number of quota units comprising the Bid, when aggregated with the quota units allocated to such bidder, would exceed acquisition limit.

No Bid by an eligible person of less than 30,000 quota units of a category will be processed.

Retirement fund

9(1)   All administration fees paid to the Board by successful bidders will be allocated to the Retirement Fund.

9(2)   All retirement payments made by the Board to successful offerors will be paid from the Retirement Fund.

Limitation re new producers

10   In the event a person is allotted a basic allotment (the "initial allotment") and becomes a registered producer pursuant to an application to the Board under section 6 of this Order, such person shall not be entitled to submit an Offer which would result in the basic allotment allotted to that person being reduced below the initial allotment for at least 10 years from the date of such initial allotment.

Additional transfer assessment

11   In the event the basic allotment allotted to a producer under Box 2 of the Basic Allotment List is greater than the basic allotment allotted to such producer under Box 1 of such List (such difference being referred to as the "difference"), any successful Offer submitted by that the registered producer shall be reduced by an amount equal to such difference for a period of five years from the effective date of the allotment of the difference.

Notification lists

12   Any person who is not a registered producer and who wishes to participate in a Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program as a bidder may request in writing, in such form as the Board may prescribe for such purposes, that such person's name be added to the Notification List.

Any person added to the Notification List shall be deleted from that List one year after being added to such List. A person on such List may request, in such form as the Board may prescribe for such purposes, that such person's name be included on such list for a further one year period, provided such application is made not earlier than one month prior to the date upon which such person's name would otherwise be deleted from such List.

Information

13   The Board will forward to each registered producer, in a form approved by the Manitoba Council, within 15 days following Board approval, the results of the Retirement and Basic Allotment Reallocation Program.
