Full text
352.1. The council of a municipality with 100,000 inhabitants or more may, by by-law, provide that, on any document that is produced repeatedly or of which a significant number of copies are made, the handwritten signature of one of its members or of an officer or employee of the municipality may be replaced by a facsimile or other equivalent engraved, lithographed, printed or affixed using an automatic device or an electronic process.
The facsimile or other equivalent, used in accordance with the by-law in force, has the same force as the handwritten signature. The facsimile or other equivalent may, however, in no case replace the handwritten signature on the original of a resolution or of a document that is the subject of a resolution, nor may it serve to authenticate a copy of or an excerpt from such an original or a copy replacing such an original.
