26. Every student at an educational institution who is represented by an accredited students’ association is deemed a member of the association, and every students’ association represented by an accredited students’ association alliance is deemed a member of the alliance.
A member of such an association or alliance remains so even when it loses its accreditation or ceases to represent the member.
The member may, in particular, in respect of the association or alliance, as the case may be, exercise the rights conferred by the Companies Act (chapter C-38) as the rights granted by the association’s or alliance’s charter and by-laws to its members.
This section does not apply, however, to a student who serves notice in writing on the association representing him that he refuses to be a member of it, nor to an association which serves notice in writing on the students’ association alliance representing it that it refuses to be a member of that alliance.
