10.1. A students’ association which, at the time of its application for accreditation,
(1) is incorporated under Part III of the Companies Act (chapter C-38), and
(2) has obtained a majority of the votes cast in a ballot poll of the students who will eventually be contemplated by the application for accreditation, provided that the majority comprises at least 25 % of the students who are registered at the institution concerned on the date of the polling notice,
is entitled to accreditation.
Every association which intends to apply for accreditation for more than one of the groups of students contemplated in section 2.1 must obtain, for each such group, a majority of the votes cast in a ballot poll of the students of each group, provided that the majority comprises, for each group, at least 25 % of the students who are registered at the institution concerned on the date of the polling notice.
However, where several applicant associations in the same educational institution obtain the majority of students required in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph or in the second paragraph during the same polling period, only the association having obtained the greater or greatest number of votes is entitled to accreditation.
