5.    If you believe that the obligation that the garnishee summons is trying to affect is (or may be) owed to someone other than the debtor, give the reasons for your belief and the name and address of that other person.   6.    If you have already received another garnishee summons regarding the same obligation and that garnishee summons is still in effect, let the court clerk’s office know in writing and give the court file number of the other garnishee summons. The court file number is on the front page of the garnishee summons.   7.    Where the garnishee summons seeks to affect a joint entitlement, the garnishee’s response must contain the name of each person who has the joint obligation with the debtor and either          (a)    the address of each person who has the joint obligation with the debtor, or
       (b)    a completed certificate of service (found on the second page of this document) stating that you have served a copy of this garnishee summons on each person who has the joint obligation with the debtor.
         Note:   If it is a joint account, it is a one‑time obligation.   8.    Where the garnishee summons has attached a future obligation, that is, there is an amount that you must pay the debtor in the future, the garnishee’s response must contain the following, if known:
       (a)    the date or dates on which the future obligation, or any part of it, is expected to become payable;
       (b)    the amount expected to be payable on each date set out above;          (c)    any conditions that must be met before the future obligation will become payable.

2.    Deliver to the court clerk a garnishee’s response. See below for what this must contain.   3.    Within 5 days after the end of the debtor’s last pay period for months affected by the garnishee summons, pay to the court clerk the debtor’s net pay less
       (a)    the debtor’s employment earnings exemption (see employment earnings exemptions listed below), and
       (b)    $10 as a garnishee compensation.   Net pay means the debtor’s total earnings minus any amounts you are required to deduct for income tax, Canada Pension Plan contributions and employment insurance premiums. Any other deductions are taken from the debtor’s exemption.
The garnishee’s response must contain as much of the following as applicable:
1.    Whether or not you employ the debtor.   2.    How often you pay the debtor.
3.    Either
       (a)    a certificate of service on the debtor (found on the second page of this document) stating that you have delivered a copy of the garnishee summons to the debtor, or          (b)    a statement setting out why you could not serve the garnishee summons on the debtor.
       Note:     Send the original certificate of service to the court clerk.   4.    If you have already received another garnishee summons against the debtor’s employment earnings and that garnishee summons is still in effect, let the court clerk’s office know in writing and give the court file number of the other garnishee summons. The court file number is on the front page of the garnishee summons.   At the end of the debtor’s last pay period for each month during which the garnishee summons is in effect, you must deliver to the court clerk a written statement setting out:
1.    The debtor’s total employment earnings for the pay periods that ended during the month.
2.    The amounts deducted from the total earnings to calculate the debtor’s net pay for the month.
3.    The number of the debtor’s dependants. Employment earnings exemptions Calculate the debtor’s monthly employment earnings exemptions by adding together
       (a)    the debtor’s minimum exemption, and
       (b)    half of the amount by which the debtor’s net pay exceeds this minimum exemption.   For a debtor with no dependants, the minimum employment earnings exemption is $800 and the maximum is $2400. The minimum and maximum employment earnings exemptions increase by $200 for each dependant.
A dependant is:
1.    A person identified as a dependant by Court order.   2.    The spouse or adult interdependent partner of the debtor.
3.    Any child of the debtor under 18 years of age who lives with the debtor.
4.    Any relative of the debtor (or of the debtor’s spouse/adult interdependent partner) who lives with the debtor and, because of mental or physical infirmity, depends financially on the debtor.   You are entitled to rely on, and act in accordance with, the debtor’s written statement of the number of dependants he or she has.
You can get a worksheet from the court clerk’s office to help you calculate the debtor’s employment earnings exemption.
When employment earnings are garnished for alimony or maintenance, employment exemptions under the Maintenance Enforcement Act apply. Refer to the Maintenance Enforcement Regulation (AR 2/86) for more information.   If you pay the debtor’s salary/wage more often than monthly, you can pay the court clerk at the end of each pay period instead of at the end of each month.
In this case, calculate the minimum and maximum employment exemptions for each pay period as follows:
1.    Multiply the monthly exemption by the number of days in the pay period.
2.    Divide this number by 30.
