S-2.2 - Public Health Act

Full text
34. Ongoing surveillance of the health status of the population is a function conferred exclusively on the Minister and the public health directors.
However, the Minister may confer on the Institut national de santé publique du Québec the mandate to exercise all or part of the Minister’s surveillance function or certain surveillance activities, on the conditions and to the extent the Minister considers appropriate. The Minister may also confer such a mandate on a third person, but in such a case, the mandate must first be submitted to the Commission d’accès à l’information for an opinion.
