31.1. Where the Tribunal grants an application for the recovery of rent and the defaulting lessee receives a benefit under a last resort financial assistance program provided for in the Individual and Family Assistance Act (chapter A-13.1.1), the Tribunal may order the Minister of Employment and Social Solidarity to pay to the lessor concerned the part of the benefit relating to lodging, in the amount and subject to the conditions prescribed by regulation under that Act, for any rent falling due during the month for which such benefit is granted. The order is contingent on a renunciation by the lessor of his right to apply for the resiliation of the lease.
The Tribunal shall fix the period during which the order is applicable, which shall not exceed two years. The order is executory for any period during which the lessee lives in a dwelling belonging to the lessor and so long as the lessor is entitled to collect the rent.
The Tribunal may also, where the lessee has been subject to such an order in the two years preceding the issue of the new order, provide that the new order is applicable, on the same conditions, to the lessor concerned and to any future lessor.
