C-1.1 - Act to establish a legal framework for information technology

Full text
60. When a technology-based document is to be used in a communication, the validity and scope of the certificate must be verified before the certificate may be relied upon, in order to obtain confirmation of the identity or identification of any party to the communication or of the correctness of an object identifier.
Similarly, before the information contained in the certificate is relied upon, it is necessary to verify whether the accuracy of the information is confirmed by the certification service provider.
The verification may be made in the directory or at the place indicated in the directory or with the service provider by means of a device for consultation on the premises or by remote access.
