A person applying for the issuance of a certificate under sections 1 to 3 who is not domiciled in Québec must indicate to the Commission the region in which he or she wishes to benefit from an employment preference. The competency certificate must mention this choice, which remains valid until the expiry of the competency certificate unless the certificate holder becomes domiciled in Québec.
The person is deemed to be domiciled in the region chosen pursuant to the first paragraph for the purposes of subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 35 of the Regulation respecting the hiring and mobility of employees in the construction industry (O.C. 1946-82, 82-11-25). The second paragraph of section 39.1 of that Regulation does not apply to the person.
