  • (b) the shares are issued in accordance with the procedures, and subject to the requirements, set out in sections 33 to 35 of the Bank Act, and for that purpose references therein to “a bank” or “the bank” shall be construed as references to IAC Limited and subsection 33(1) shall be read without reference to the words “not less than par” therein;

and compliance with the procedures referred to in paragraph (b) constitutes compliance with the requirements of the Canada Corporations Act and the Canada Business Corporations Act as to the issue of shares by IAC Limited and the shares issued in compliance with those procedures constitute validly issued shares.
