56. The Commission may take possession of any document, object or record belonging or not to a person or company subject to an investigation, and whether or not the same be in the possession of such person or company, whenever the Commission deems the same necessary for the purposes of such investigation.
Such power may also be exercised by any investigator authorized by the Commission and who must produce this authorization on demand.
Such power shall not extend to any document or record which the holder thereof owing to his professional secrecy, cannot be compelled to produce before the courts of Québec.
