498. The court homologates a subpoena issued by an authority in another province or in a territory of Canada if it is accompanied by the advance on the witness indemnity and a certificate stating that the authority is convinced that the witness’s attendance at court is necessary to resolve the matter regarding which the witness is called to attend.
If the witness’s attendance in person is required, the court homologates the subpoena only if the law of the witness’s place of residence provides for immunity similar to that provided for in article 497.
Once homologated, the subpoena must be notified to the witness at least 10 days before the time at which the witness is scheduled to attend at court.
