1328-2020O.C. 1328-2020, s. 2.
3. A request made to the Order with regard to facts likely to give rise to a claim is deemed to be a claim if the request is filed within the period referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 2.
The claim becomes admissible where the conditions set out in subparagraphs 2 to 4 of the first paragraph of section 2 are met.
1328-2020O.C. 1328-2020, s. 3.
