C-25.01 - Code of Civil Procedure

Full text
60. The order to appear is issued on the court’s own initiative or on an application presented before the court, which does not require notification.
The order must be served personally; however, if circumstances do not permit personal service, the court may authorize another method of notification.
If the alleged contempt of court is committed in the presence of the court and must be ruled on without delay, the only requirement is that the person be first called upon to justify their behaviour.
