INTERPRETATION AND APPLICATION
1999, c. 53, s. 12.
1. In this Act and the regulations hereunder, unless otherwise required by the context and except in the case of the word “permit”, the words and expressions defined in section 2 of the Act respecting offences relating to alcoholic beverages (chapter I-8.1) have the same meaning as in the latter Act.
1979, c. 71, s. 1; 1996, c. 34, s. 18.
1.1. The permits authorizing the sale or service of alcoholic beverages in the territory defined in an agreement concerning liquor permits concluded between the Government and a Mohawk community are determined in the agreement and issued by the authority designated in the agreement.
The designated authority and the persons authorized to act on its behalf have the powers necessary for verifying and ensuring compliance with the conditions for the issue of the permits and the conditions of the permits determined under the agreement, in particular the powers conferred on the board in matters of inspection, and cannot be sued or prosecuted for an official act performed in good faith in the exercise of their functions.
Permits authorizing the sale or service of alcoholic beverages in the defined territory issued by the board before the effective date of the agreement become, on that date, permits issued in accordance with that agreement.

CHAPTER VIII
TRANSITIONAL AND FINAL PROVISIONS
148. The Régie des permis d’alcool du Québec acquires the rights of the Commission de contrôle des permis d’alcool du Québec and assumes the obligations thereof.
The Régie is authorized to use any document or means of identification already drawn up in the name of the Commission de contrôle des permis d’alcool du Québec, until it is able to replace it by documents or means of identification drawn up in the name of the Régie des permis d’alcool du Québec.
1979, c. 71, s. 148.
149. The secretary-general and the members of the personnel of the Commission de contrôle des permis d’alcool du Québec in office at the coming into force of this section become, respectively, the secretary and the members of the personnel of the Régie.
1979, c. 71, s. 149.
150. This Act and the Act respecting offences relating to alcoholic beverages apply in respect of a permit issued before the coming into force of this section, as if it were a permit issued by the Régie under this Act.
However, the rules respecting the conditions of use of an Olympic Stadium permit, a hunting or fishing lodge permit, a public carrier permit, a trading post permit or a reception permit, which were in force before the coming into force of this section, continue to apply until the date provided for in section 151.
1979, c. 71, s. 150.
151. A permit issued by the Commission de contrôle des permis d’alcool du Québec or by the Régie is, in 1981, renewable by the Régie in accordance with this Act on the first day of the month of birth of the holder of the permit.
Notwithstanding the first paragraph, a reception permit or a reunion permit remains in force until its date of expiry and shall not be renewed.
1979, c. 71, s. 151.
152. Upon a renewal contemplated in section 151,
(1)  a hunting or fishing lodge permit, a public carrier permit or a trading post permit is converted by the Régie to a permit of the appropriate class provided for by this Act, according to what the permit authorizes;
(2)  a permit held by a natural person for the benefit of a third person is renewed in the name of the person who intends to use it;
(3)  an Olympic Stadium permit is converted to an “Olympic Grounds” permit.
1979, c. 71, s. 152.
153. The date on which a permit is renewed in accordance with section 151 is deemed to be the date on which it was obtained.
That permit is renewed for two years if the permit holder was born in an odd year and for one year if the holder was born in an even year.
1979, c. 71, s. 153.
154. The Government shall determine by regulation the duties payable upon a renewal provided for by section 151. That regulation comes into force on the date of its publication in the Gazette officielle du Québec.
1979, c. 71, s. 154.
155. The Régie shall compute the duties payable by each holder whose permit is renewed in accordance with section 151 in proportion to the duration of renewal of the permit.
1979, c. 71, s. 155.
156. At least two months before the date provided for in section 151 but not later than 1 March 1981, the Régie shall send a notice to a permit holder informing him of the date and duration of renewal of his permit, of the duties he must pay and of his obligation to do so at least ten days before the date of renewal.
Furthermore, if the renewal of a permit takes place
(1)  on 1 January, February, March or April 1981, the Régie shall credit to the permit holder the amount he has already paid upon the issue or the last renewal of the permit for the period comprised between the date of renewal and 30 April 1981;
(2)  on 1 June, July, August, September, October, November or December 1981, the Régie shall indicate the supplementary duties the holder must pay to maintain his permit in force for the period from 1 May 1981 to the date of renewal of the permit, and his obligation to pay these duties at least ten days before 1 May 1981, under pain of cancellation of the permit on that date.
Section 53 applies, with the necessary modifications, if a permit holder does not pay the prescribed duties within the allotted time. The date of expiry of the permit is then deemed to be the date provided for the renewal, or 1 May 1981 in the case contemplated in paragraph 2 of the second paragraph.
1979, c. 71, s. 156.
157. The holder of a permit authorizing the sale of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises must, within thirty days of the coming into force of section 71, forward in writing to the Régie the information prescribed by section 71 if a person is entrusted with the management of his establishment.
1979, c. 71, s. 157.
158. Matters pending at the coming into force of this section are continued and decided by the Régie in accordance with this Act.
Within thirty days after the sending of a notice of the Régie to that effect, an application for a permit must, under pain of being dismissed, be amended in the following manner:
(1)  in the case of an application for a hunting or fishing lodge permit, a trading post permit or a public carrier permit, the applicant must amend it so as to make it conform with the classes established by section 25;
(2)  in the case of an application made by a natural person for the benefit of a third person, the latter person must take the place of the applicant.
An application for a reception permit is deemed to be an application for a reunion permit, and an application for an Olympic Stadium Permit is deemed to be an application for an “Olympic Grounds” permit.
Nothing in this section has the effect of shortening any period that may have begun to run nor of invalidating what may have already been validly done.
1979, c. 71, s. 158.
159. Regulations made under the Act respecting the Commission de contrôle des permis d’alcool in force at the coming into force of this section continue to be in force to the extent that they are not inconsistent with this Act or a regulation made thereunder, until they are repealed or replaced in accordance with this Act or, in the case of a regulation determining the duties to be collected by the Société, in accordance with the Act respecting the Société des alcools du Québec (chapter S-13).
However, Sections I and II of Part II of the regulations adopted by Order in Council 2658 of 28 July 1971, as amended to 31 May 1980, remain in force until 17 November 1981. From 18 November 1981, they are repealed with the exception of the first paragraph of subsection 4 and subsections 5, 6 and 7 of the said Section II which remain in force until they are repealed or replaced in accordance with the Act respecting the Société des alcools du Québec.
1979, c. 71, s. 159; 1982, c. 4, s. 9.
160. In any Act, regulation, order in council, contract or document,
(1)  a reference to a provision of the Act respecting the Commission de contrôle des permis d’alcool is a reference to the equivalent provision of this Act or the Act respecting offences relating to alcoholic beverages, if such a provision exists;
(2)  the expressions “Commission de contrôle des permis d’alcool” and “Commission de contrôle des permis d’alcool du Québec” are replaced by the expression “Régie des permis d’alcool du Québec”;
(3)  the word “Commission”, where it designates the Commission de contrôle des permis d’alcool du Québec, is replaced by the word “Régie”;
(4)  the word “commissioner”, where it designates a member of the Commission de contrôle des permis d’alcool du Québec, is replaced by the word “director”; and
(5)  the expression “secretary-general”, where it designates the secretary-general of the Commission de contrôle des permis d’alcool du Québec, is replaced by the word “secretary”.
1979, c. 71, s. 160.
160.1. In addition to the permits mentioned in section 25, the Régie may issue Québec 1534-1984 permits.
A permit issued under this section authorizes the sale, for consumption on the premises, of the alcoholic beverages indicated on the permit, from 15 June to 4 September 1984, and at the place designated on the permit when that is situated, in the city of Québec, on any part of the site of the Vieux Port de Québec, if access to the site is controlled by the Québec 1534-1984 corporation and the Canada Lands Company (Vieux Port de Québec) Inc. or, in the city of Lévis, on any part of the site known as the “Quai Paquet” if access to the site is controlled by the Québec 1534-1984 corporation. A person requesting such a permit is required to have obtained the approval of the Québec 1534-1984 corporation.
The permit may be operated in a room or on a terrace even if another permit authorizing consumption on the premises is in use there. In such a case, the operating conditions applicable to the “Québec 1534-1984” permit prevail for the duration of the permit.
The provisions of any Act and of any regulation applicable to a “Man and his World” permit apply, with the necessary modifications, to a “Québec 1534-1984” permit.
