517. Despite sections 513 to 516, the Minister may determine the regulatory provisions made under this Act whose contravention constitutes an offence and renders the offender liable to a fine the minimum and maximum amounts of which are set by the Minister. The Government may also provide that, despite article 231 of the Code of Penal Procedure (chapter C-25.1), a contravention renders the offender liable to a term of imprisonment, or both the fine and imprisonment.
The maximum penalties under the first paragraph may vary according to the seriousness of the offence, without exceeding those prescribed in section 516.
