C-48.1 - Chartered Professional Accountants Act

Full text
10. As long as an agreement under section 9 is in force, chartered professional accountants are authorized, despite being bound by professional secrecy and to the extent specified in the agreement, to provide information relating to their professional activities or clients to a representative of the body acting within the scope of its activities in Québec.
The information communicated under the agreement by a chartered professional accountant must be treated by the body receiving it with as much confidentiality as if it had been obtained or was held by the Order in the exercise of the powers granted it by the Professional Code (chapter C-26). That obligation does not, however, restrict the powers granted by an Act of Québec to the Autorité des marchés financiers as regards the communication of information.
