152.1. The authority that is competent to issue an Aboriginal customary adoption certificate is a person or body domiciled in Québec and designated by the Aboriginal community or nation. The competent authority may not, when called on to act, be a party to the adoption.
The act designating such an authority must be notified to the registrar of civil status within 30 days after the designation and, where applicable, the latter must be notified within that same time of the date on which the authority ceases to be competent.
