58.1.1. The Government may, by order, constitute a regional housing bureau in the territory of any regional county municipality it designates.
Such a bureau succeeds, on the date fixed in the order, the municipal bureaus existing in the territory of the regional county municipality specified in the order. The municipal bureaus are dissolved on that date. The new bureau is vested with all their rights, property and privileges and is bound by their obligations. Any disposition of property made in favour of a dissolved bureau is deemed to be made to the new bureau succeeding it and all proceedings commenced by or against a dissolved bureau may validly be continued by or against the new bureau succeeding it, without continuance of suit.
Subsections 3 to 6 of section 57 and sections 57.1 and 58 apply to the new bureau, with the necessary modifications.
The transmission of the immovables of the dissolved bureaus to the new bureau resulting from this Act does not require publication in the land register.
The new bureau is the agent of the regional county municipality. The latter is deemed to have affirmed, on the date fixed in the order, its jurisdiction with respect to the management of social housing under article 618.104.22.168 of the Municipal Code of Québec (chapter C-27.1) as regards the municipalities determined by the order.
