S-2.3 - Civil Protection Act

Full text
112. Entitlement to financial assistance or compensation under a program established under this division is prescribed one year after its implementation date or, if a decision is made to extend the territory to which it applies, one year after the date of the decision as far as the additional territory is concerned. If the damage appears progressively or tardily, the prescription period runs from the day the damage first appears, provided this first appearance does not occur more than five years after the implementation of the program or the decision to extend the territory, as the case may be.
Any application filed more than three months after the beginning of the prescription period must, on pain of refusal, have been preceded by a notice filed by the applicant within those three months specifying the nature of the application to be filed, unless the applicant shows that it was impossible to act sooner.
