A-32.1 - Insurers Act

Full text
312. An authorized insurer becomes, as of the date and, if applicable, the time shown on the certificate of continuance issued by the enterprise registrar, a regulated business corporation.
In addition, in the case of an authorized Québec insurer constituted under a private Act, the articles of continuance are, as of that time, substituted for that Act, which ceases to have effect. However, in the case of a mutual-interest insurer, the private Act remains in force and any reference in it to the insurer is replaced by a reference to the mutual-interest regulated business corporation resulting from the continuance. Subject to the third paragraph, the articles of continuance may contain any provision departing from the sections of the private Act that apply to the regulated business corporation, or provide that all or some of those sections cease to have effect and replace them by any other provision not contrary to the Business Corporations Act (chapter S-31.1) or this Act.
The rights in the mutual-interest insurer conferred on the mutual legal person and its members by the private Act governing the insurer, and the obligation imposed on that legal person to be the holder of control of the insurer or the holder of any other interest in its capital, are unaffected by the continuance. Any provision to the contrary in the articles of continuance is deemed unwritten.
