Bill 36 – An Act respecting the Banque de développement économique du Québec

Corps

The Québec Ombudsman's services are accessible not only to natural persons, but also to enterprises. Because the Banque de développement économique du Québec and its subsidiaries will offer direct services to enterprises, the Québec Ombudsman considers that they should be subject to its jurisdiction, which is not the case in the current version of the bill.

It therefore recommends that Section 15 of the Public Protector Act be amended to add the Banque de développement économique du Québec and its subsidiaries to the list of companies held to be public bodies.
