44 Where it appears to the Registrar that a certificate has been destroyed, lost or stolen, a cheque for an amount equal to the amount payable upon maturity of that certificate may be issued upon completion by the registered owner or by a person acting on his behalf, who is acceptable to the Registrar, of an undertaking in a form approved by the Registrar but unless the Registrar in its discretion otherwise decides, no cheque shall be issued pursuant to this section until at least three months have elapsed from the date upon which the Registrar first received notice of the alleged destruction, loss or theft of the certificate.
45 If the maturity value of all certificates that belonged to a deceased owner is less than $50, production of the documents referred to in section 19 may, at the discretion of the Registrar be dispensed with and the Registrar may redeem the certificates to or in favour of the persons shown to be entitled by a letter from a bank, trust company or other institution acceptable to the Registrar, certifying that letters probate, letters of administration or other documents of like import were in fact granted or executed and giving such further particulars in respect thereof as the Registrar may require.
