Full text
45.1. Directors of a corporation referred to in section 1 of the Business Corporations Act (chapter S-31.1) which acts as a producer or presenter are solidarily liable, to the artists bound by contract with the corporation, for six months’ remuneration or other monetary consideration owed to them under such a contract during their respective administration.
However, a director is not liable unless the corporation is sued for the debt within one year after it becomes due and the notice of execution is returned unsatisfied in whole or in part or unless, during that period, a liquidation order is made against the corporation or it becomes bankrupt within the meaning of that expression in the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. B-3) and a claim for the debt is filed with the liquidator or the syndic.
However, a director cannot be held liable under this section if the director acted with a reasonable degree of prudence and diligence in the circumstances.
