The following persons are public office holders:
(1) the members of the board of directors of, and members of, a government agency or government corporation within the meaning of the Auditor General Act (chapter V-5.01) other than a legal person less than 100 % of the voting shares of which are held by a government agency or government corporation to which this subparagraph applies, and the persons holding administrative offices provided for by law within such an agency or corporation;
(2) the persons appointed or designated by the Government or by a minister to an office within any agency or corporation that is not a public body within the meaning of the Auditor General Act to whom subparagraph 1 does not apply.
A person already governed by standards of ethics or professional conduct under the Public Service Act (chapter F-3.1.1) shall, in addition, be subject to the standards prescribed under this division where that person’s position is that of a public office holder.
This section does not apply to judges of a court within the meaning of the Courts of Justice Act (chapter T-16), to bodies every member of which is a judge of the Court of Québec or to the Conseil de la magistrature. Nor does this section apply to the Conseil de la justice administrative, the Administrative Tribunal of Québec and its members, adjudicative bodies in respect of which the Conseil is conferred jurisdiction by the law over the hearing of complaints against one of their members for a breach of professional conduct, or the members of those bodies.
