(3) The county or local board thereof shall be deemed to have elected to participate in the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System on the day before the by-law under subsection 209 (2) of the Act comes into force in respect of a person employed under subsection (1) if the employee was or was entitled to be a member of the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System on the day immediately preceding his or her employment with the county or local board thereof and the employee,

(2) The market value of a right, obligation, asset or liability is the amount the right, obligation, asset or liability might be expected to bring if it changed hands in the open market between a willing seller and a willing buyer on the day before a county passes a by-law under subsection 209 (2) of the Municipal Act, as that subsection read on December 31, 2002. R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 815, s. 3 (2); O. Reg. 408/02, s. 3 (2).
