Problems Creating Projection File

I was given some CAD Data and told it was in a 10TM projection, included in the meta data was the following information:

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION:         Latitude: 49:0:0
                                         Longitude: 110:0:0
PROJECTION:            10 DEGREE TRANSVERSE MERCATOR
PROJECTION ID:         0202
CENTRAL MERIDIAN:      115
COMBINED SCALE FACTOR: 0
IGDS GLOBAL ORIGIN:    X = 500000    Y = -5000000
DESIGN SCALE:          1000000
DATUM:                 NAD83
COMMENTS:              1:1,000,000 POSITION FILE

This is my attempt at the projection file:

PROJCS["10TM",GEOGCS["GCS_North_American_1983",DATUM["D_North_American_1983",SPHEROID["GRS_1980",6378137.0,298.257222101]],PRIMEM["Greenwich",0.0],UNIT["Degree",0.0174532925199433]],PROJECTION["Transverse_Mercator"],PARAMETER["False_Easting",500000.0],PARAMETER["False_Northing",-5000000.0],PARAMETER["Central_Meridian",115.0],PARAMETER["Scale_Factor",0.0],PARAMETER["Latitude_Of_Origin",49.0],UNIT["Meter",1.0]]

If someone could explain where I am going wrong that would be fantastic, keep in mind I am a relatively novice user,
Thanks in advance
