The letters patent shall state the name and the location of the seat of the new college resulting from the amalgamation and shall designate the first five board members appointed under subparagraph a of the first paragraph of section 8; the letters patent may contain any other provision consistent with this Act.
The letters patent of the new college come into force on the date of publication of a notice of their issue in the Gazette officielle du Québec or on any later date fixed by the Government.
