S-16.011 - Act respecting the Société du Plan Nord

Full text
7. Any person may use a government-designated infrastructure that is fully or partially privately owned, for which construction began after 1 April 2015 and that is located on public land in the area covered by the Northern Plan.
If the infrastructure owner and a user carrying on industrial or commercial activities cannot reach an agreement regarding the sharing of the infrastructure construction, maintenance and operating costs, the Company acts as a mediator. If they fail to reach an agreement by the end of the mediation process, the dispute is submitted to arbitration. The arbitrator’s decision cannot be appealed.
The Company establishes by regulation the rules for arbitration. Such a regulation must be submitted for approval to the Government, which may approve it with or without amendment.
The Government may make or amend a regulation referred to in this section if the Company does not do so within the time specified by the Government.
