MANDATORY PROVISIONS UNDER APPLICABLE LAW

According to the rules established by the Ministry of Education, LaSalle College may charge a termination payment and penalties upon terminating or cancelling the educational services contract, in any way whatsoever before the end of the last semester indicated in the contract. 

Under Article 20 of the Regulation respecting the application of the Act respecting private education (Québec), this Contract must set out the full text in sections 70 to 76 of the Act respecting private education (Québec), which read as follows:

70. No institution may require payment from a client before performance of its obligation has begun, except for the payment of an admission or enrollment fee not in excess of the amount determined in accordance with the regulations of the Minister.

No institution may require payment of the client’s obligation, or balance thereof if admission or enrollment fees have been paid, in less than two reasonably equal instalments. The dates on which the instalments become due must be fixed in such a way that they fall approximately at the beginning of each half of the duration, calculated in months, lessons or credits, of the educational services for which the student is enrolled.

71. The client may, at any time and at his discretion, cancel the contract by giving notice to that effect by registered mail. The contract shall be cancelled by operation of law from the receipt of the notice.

72. If the client cancels the contract before the provision of services has begun, the institution cannot demand compensation in excess of the amount obtained by subtracting the admission or enrollment fees from the lesser of the following two amounts: the maximum amount determined in accordance with the regulations of the Minister, and an amount representing not more than 1/10 of the total price agreed upon for the services.

73. If the client cancels the contract after the provision of services has begun, the institution may demand only the following amounts from the client:

(1)  the price of the services provided calculated in months, lessons, or credits as specified in the contract;

(2)  as penalty, the amount obtained by subtracting the admission or enrollment fees from the lesser of the following two amounts: the maximum amount determined in accordance with the regulations of the Minister, and an amount representing not more than 1/10 of the total price agreed upon for the services.

74. In the ten days following the cancellation of the contract, the institution must return to the client the amounts it has received in excess of those to which it is entitled.

75. The client may demand that the contract be annulled if he becomes aware that the student was admitted to the educational services concerned in contravention of the provisions governing admission to those services.

76. No person may depart from the provisions of this chapter by means of an agreement which provides otherwise. Furthermore, no client may waive a right conferred on him by this Chapter.
