Regulations for Advocates within Non-Profit Legal Persons
Quebec (Profession Code C-26)
Regulation respecting the practice of the profession of advocate within a non-profit legal person
The board of directors of the Bar of Quebec (Barreau du Québec) made a draft regulation which has been submitted for examination to the Office des professions du Québec. The Office des professions du Québec may or may not amend the draft regulation before submitting it to the Government for approval.
The draft Regulation determines the terms, conditions and restrictions applicable to the practice of the profession of advocate within a non-profit legal person, as well as the terms, conditions and restrictions under which a retired advocate may engage in certain professional activities within a non-profit legal person.
A “non-profit legal person” is a group of persons constituted under a Québec law that engages in non-profit activities that are cultural, social, philanthropic, national, patriotic, religious, charitable, scientific, artistic, professional, athletic, sporting, educational or other in nature, with no intention of generating profits for its members.
An “advocate” (also known as “legal counsel”, “member of the Bar”, “attorney”) is a person entered on the Roll. A “retired advocate” is a person entered on the Roll as a retired advocate; “advocate” includes “retired advocate”, unless otherwise provided by law.
The Office des professions du Québec is a non-budgetary government body that reports to the Minister responsible for the application of professional laws, namely, the Minister responsible for Government Administration and Chair of the Treasury Board.
