34.3. The Minister may refuse to renew a teaching licence, or may suspend or revoke it or attach conditions to it if the licence holder
(1)  has been convicted of a criminal or penal offence committed in Canada or elsewhere which, in the Minister’s opinion, is relevant to the practice of the teaching profession, unless a pardon has been obtained for that offence;
(2)  fails to provide a declaration concerning his judicial record or makes false statements on such a declaration;
(3)  fails to inform the Minister of a change in his judicial record; or
(4)  admits to having committed a serious fault in the exercise of his functions, or an act derogatory to the honour or dignity of the teaching profession, or, in the opinion of the inquiry committee, has committed such a fault or act.
In addition, the Minister may revoke a teaching licence if the licence holder has failed to respect the conditions attached to it by the Minister.

34.3. The decision of the Minister to revoke, suspend or attach conditions to a teaching licence may, within 60 days of notification of the decision, be contested before the Administrative Tribunal of Québec.
A proceeding brought before the Tribunal suspends the execution of the Minister’s decision, unless the Tribunal, on a motion heard and decided by preference, orders otherwise owing to the serious risk to the quality of services or the safety of the students.
