(a) the worker is resident in Canada; and
(b) the employer of the worker has made an irrevocable election in the prescribed form containing the prescribed information that the employer sent to the Minister of Revenue, so that the employment of each worker resident in Canada who is an Indian employed by the employer that would, if no reference were made to this section, be excepted employment solely because of paragraph j of section 3 of the Act, is not considered to be excepted employment as of the date the employer indicated on the prescribed form, which must be later than 30 June 2006 and not earlier than the date on which the prescribed form is filed.

3. Section 47.1 of the Act does not apply for the purpose of determining the self-employed earnings or the earnings as a family-type resource or an intermediate resource for a year of a worker who is an Indian if the worker so elects by notifying the Minister of Revenue in writing on or before the fifteenth day of the month of June in the second year following that year.
