12. The Minister shall issue, after consulting the Commission consultative de l’enseignement privé, for a particular institution and for particular educational services or categories of educational services, a permit to any person
(1) who applies therefor in writing to the Minister within the time limit fixed by government regulation and furnishes, within that time limit, the information and documents prescribed by such regulation;
(2) who establishes to the Minister’s satisfaction that the institution will have at its disposal the adequate human and material resources required for dispensing the educational services for which the permit is issued and sufficient financial resources for that purpose;
(3) who has not been convicted of or pleaded guilty to, or whose chief executive officer has not been convicted of or pleaded guilty to an offence under this Act or section 78.1 or 78.2 of the Charter of the French language (chapter C-11), or a criminal offence committed in relation to the operation of an educational institution in the three years preceding the application;
(4) who pays the fees fixed by government regulation;
(5) who furnishes security, except in the case of an institution accredited for purposes of subsidies, to guarantee the performance of its obligations under Chapter IV in accordance with government regulations.
However, the Minister may refuse to issue a permit if, during the three years preceding the application, a permit held by the applicant was revoked.
Moreover, the Minister may refuse to issue a permit if, in the Minister’s opinion, doing so could allow the circumvention of section 72 of the Charter of the French language or of other provisions of that Act governing eligibility for instruction in English.
The Minister may also, with a view to preventing such a result, subject a permit to any condition the Minister judges necessary.
