H-5 - Hydro-Québec Act

Full text
18.1. If a board member is sued by a third party for an act done in the exercise of the functions of office, the Company shall assume the board member’s defence and pay any damages awarded as compensation for the injury resulting from that act, unless the board member committed a gross fault or a personal fault separable from those functions.
In penal or criminal proceedings, however, the Company shall pay the board member’s defence costs only if the board member was discharged or acquitted, or if the Company deems that the board member acted in good faith.
