4.1. The Minister may, for the preparation and presentation of the Government’s budgetary policies, set net result targets for state-owned enterprises, other than the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, the Commission de la construction du Québec, the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail and Retraite Québec.
The targets are set jointly with the Chair of the Conseil du trésor if a state-owned enterprise benefits from a transfer, that is, an undertaking under which the Government, a minister or a budget-funded body confers an economic benefit on the enterprise, in the fiscal year in which the target applies, for no consideration in goods or services.
For the purposes of this Act, state-owned enterprises are legal persons the majority of whose members or directors are appointed by the Government, except legal persons qualified as budget-funded bodies, institutions in the health and social services network and institutions in the education network, including Université du Québec and its constituent universities. The Minister shall post a list of the enterprises on the department’s website.
