21. The council of the municipality shall pass a by-law dividing its territory into electoral districts after the expiry of the time in which electors may make objections to the draft by-law or after the day of the public meeting, as the case may be, but before 1 June of the calendar year preceding that in which the general election for which the division is required is to be held.
As soon as practicable after passage of the by-law, the clerk or the secretary-treasurer shall transmit a certified copy thereof to the Commission de la représentation.
On a written recommendation of the Commission de la représentation to the municipality, and if the number of electors is not affected, the council of the municipality may amend a provision of the by-law referred to in the first paragraph in order to correct a clerical error or an error in concordance between the description and the accompanying map or sketch, or to comply with the standards referred to in section 15. The amendment forms an integral part of the by-law, as if it had been adopted with it. The clerk or the secretary-treasurer shall transmit a certified copy of the amended by-law to the Commission without delay.
