5.1. Every value of development expenses eligible for the reimbursement of property taxes of certified forest producers indicated in Schedule 1 is adjusted on 1 January of each year by a rate corresponding to the sum of the weighted indices defined in the table below for each family of non‑commercial development expenses and for each activity in the family of commercial development expenses.

For the indices in the table below for which data is made available on a monthly basis, the annual change is calculated with both 12‑month periods ending on 30 September of the year preceding the year for which a value must be adjusted.

For the indices in the table below for which data is made available on a quarterly basis, the annual change is calculated with both 4‑quarter periods ending on 30 September of the year preceding the year for which a value must be adjusted.

The result of an adjustment is rounded off to the nearest multiple of $1.00. The result of an adjustment that is equidistant from 2 multiples must be rounded off to the higher of the two.

Where the rounding off of the result of the adjustment does not make it possible to increase or decrease the expense value by at least $1.00, the adjustment of the expense value is carried forward to the year in which the sum of the adjustment rates applicable to each of the years for which the adjustment is carried forward varies the expense value by at least $1.00.

The Minister of Natural Resources and Wildlife publishes the results of the adjustment in Part 1 of the Gazette officielle du Québec and by any other means.
