S-2.3 - Civil Protection Act

Full text
105. Regional or local authorities or civil protection authorities that did not take part in the development of a civil protection plan or establish safety measures although they were required to do so or that did not implement the established safety measures although they were clearly required by the situation, that did not take the measures ordered under section 77 or 78 or that did not fulfil other civil protection obligations imposed on them by law are not eligible under any financial assistance or compensation program.
Authorities having authorized a settlement on a site, subsequently threatened or affected by a disaster, where occupation of the land was commonly known to be subject to special restrictions by reason of the risk of such a disaster, without imposing such restrictions, are not eligible under any financial assistance or compensation program.
However, this section does not apply to financial assistance or compensation programs for the implementation of prevention and emergency response planning measures, nor does it apply to programs in respect of other events which, though they do not constitute actual or imminent disasters, compromise human safety. The second paragraph does not apply with respect to structures and uses existing on 20 December 2001, unless the destination of an immovable is changed after that date, which shall be considered a new settlement for the purposes of this section.
2001, c. 76, s. 105; 2019, c. 12019, c. 1, s. 6.
