O.C. 314-2008, s. 36.

O.C. 314-2008, s. 39; 488-2017O.C. 488-2017, s. 1.
40. The security to which this Division applies is required to guarantee, for the term of the security,
(1)  first, the compensation in principal, interest and costs of any natural person having a liquidated claim related to a loss referred to in section 25 and evidenced by a final judgment rendered against the contractor or the surety, or by an agreement or transaction made between the client and the contractor or the surety to settle a dispute; and
(2)  second, the compensation of any other client, on the conditions mentioned in subparagraph 1.
Despite the foregoing, clients may be compensated from the security provided for in this Division for any part of their claim for which they may not obtain compensation in execution of the security related to an itinerant merchant’s permit required by the Consumer Protection Act (chapter P-40.1), or of other security issued by a person authorized to act as surety under section 29.
O.C. 314-2008, s. 40; 724-2018O.C. 724-2018, s. 4.
41. Where the Board receives a claim calling into question the security, the Board verifies whether the requirements of this Division are complied with, whether the claim includes any document or information necessary to determine compliance and, in the case where the claim is not accompanied by a final judgment referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 40, whether the surety agrees to enter into the agreement or transaction referred to in that subparagraph. If so, the claim is considered to comply with this Division and the Board immediately opens, subject to the third paragraph of this section, a claim file on the contractor concerned, so notifies the surety and, in the case of an agreement or transaction, the syndic, if applicable. Every copy of a judgment, agreement or transaction received or entered into thereafter must be entered in the file provided that the Board considers that the claim complies with this Division.
In the case of more than one surety issued in favour of the Board, the claim is made to the surety having issued the security that was in force at the time the contract was entered into, evidenced by a written document or the payment of an instalment. Otherwise, the claim is made to the surety having issued the security that was in force at the commencement of the work.
If the contractor concerned by the claim was the holder of an itinerant merchant’s permit required by the Consumer Protection Act (chapter P-40.1) at the time the contract was entered into or the construction work was carried out, the Board sends to the Office de la protection du consommateur, in accordance with the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information (chapter A-2.1), a copy of the documents referred to in the first paragraph, upon receipt. If the Board considers that the claim complies with this Division and the Office informs the Board that it is opening a claim file provided for in section 121 of the Regulation respecting the application of the Consumer Protection Act (chapter P-40.1, r. 3), the Board opens the claim file provided for in the first paragraph at the same time as the Office.
O.C. 314-2008, s. 41; 724-2018O.C. 724-2018, s. 5.
42. Where the surety receives from a person other than the Board a copy of a final judgment, agreement or transaction referred to in section 40 that settles a dispute, the surety must forward the copy to the Board without giving effect to the claim.
O.C. 314-2008, s. 42.
43. At the end of each 6-month period following the opening of a claim file, the Board must verify with the Office de la protection du consommateur whether a client has been compensated from the security related to an itinerant merchant’s permit required by the Consumer Protection Act (chapter P-40.1) or whether a claim file is open at the Office in respect of the client’s claim. The Board must also require from any client who has filed a claim a statement attesting that the client may not be compensated, in whole or in part, from security other than the security related to the itinerant merchant’s permit.
If the Board realizes that a client has been fully compensated for the loss sustained, it must deny the claim. In the other cases, the Board must,
(1)  if the security was provided by means of an individual or group surety insurance policy or an irrevocable and unconditional letter of credit, notify the surety by sending the surety a copy of the judgments, agreements or transactions with instructions to remit to the Board the sums necessary to satisfy the claims; or
(2)  if the security was provided by means of a certified cheque or bank draft, request the Bureau général de dépôts pour le Québec to remit to the Board the sums necessary to satisfy the claims.
The surety or the Bureau général de dépôts pour le Québec is to remit to the Board the sums necessary to satisfy the claims within 30 days of receipt of a notice or request to that effect.
Having received the amount necessary for paying the claims and subject to section 44, the Board pays, in principal, interest and costs, the claims received during the 6-month period following the opening of the claim file. In the case of a client who is partly compensated from a security referred to in the second paragraph of section 40, the amount paid by the Board is reduced so that it cannot exceed the balance of the client’s claim.
