§ 1.  — Leasing for building cottages
28.1. The rent for land leased for building cottages is based on
(1)  its proximity to a body of water;
(2)  its proximity to the nearest urban pole listed in section 17 of Schedule I; and
(3)  the reference value for the year concerned, corresponding to land rated 100, appearing on the list opposite the nearest urban pole.
The annual rent, which cannot be lower than the minimum rent fixed in section 7 of Schedule I, is calculated as follows:
(1)  the rating of the land is determined according to the criteria on the following scale:
___________________________________________________________________________________

Proximity to an Proximity to a body of water
urban pole listed
_________________________________________________________

60-89 km 65 50 35
___________________________________________________________________________________

90 km or more 50 40 25
___________________________________________________________________________________
(2)  the rating thus obtained is divided by 100 and the result is multiplied by the reference value for the year concerned appearing on the list opposite the nearest urban pole;
(3)  the result is multiplied by the square root of the ratio obtained by dividing the area of the leased land in square metres by 4,000 m2, then by 5%;
(4)  the amount obtained is rounded off to the next highest dollar if the dollar fraction is $0.50 or more, or to the next lowest dollar if the dollar fraction is less than $0.50.

Similarly, any land situated in Îles-de-la-Madeleine is deemed to be situated within 30 km from an urban pole.

A person wishing to purchase or lease land for commercial or industrial purposes must submit a written application to the Minister, along with a business plan for the person’s project and any other document or information that demonstrates the project’s socio-economic repercussions, repercussions in terms of sustainable development, and viability. The administration fees payable for the examination of the application are those provided for in paragraph 8 of the first paragraph of section 2 of Schedule I.

However, the fact that a project is deemed acceptable does not oblige the Minister to sell or lease the land.
The contract of sale or lease of land may contain conditions, particularly as regards the investments to be made, land surveying, compliance with the business plan, as well as any related resolutory clause.
