CHAPTER X
TRANSITIONAL AND FINAL PROVISIONS
517. The enterprise registrar shall preserve and keep open for examination by the public the registers and archives of a public nature kept by him before 1 January 1994 pursuant to any of the Acts listed in Schedule I or to any private Act.
On payment of the charge prescribed by regulation, the enterprise registrar may issue, to every person who applies therefor, copies or extracts of the preserved documents and certificates or attestations in relation thereto.
Where access to a record or the issue of a copy or extract of a document is requested in respect of a registrant which has availed itself of an exemption established by regulation under the third paragraph of section 97, the enterprise registrar shall delete the information covered by the exemption from the record, extract or copy. An extract or copy so issued and certified by the enterprise registrar is deemed to be a true extract or copy.
A certified copy or extract of a preserved document is authentic and is proof of its registration, where applicable.
Section 123.30, paragraph 2 of section 123.31 and section 123.32 of the Companies Act (chapter C-38) as they read on 31 December 1993 continue to apply to documents registered by the enterprise registrar under Part IA of that Act in the registers referred to in the first paragraph.
1993, c. 48, s. 517; 2001, c. 20, s. 7; 2002, c. 45, s. 551; 2010, c. 7, s. 240.
518. The clerks of the Superior Court shall preserve the registers of documents registered by them under any of the Acts listed in Schedule I and keep them open for examination by the public, free of charge, during office hours, until the Minister of Justice decides otherwise.
On request, the clerks may issue a copy of any declaration or memorandum contained in such registers and collect, for that purpose, the duty fixed by the Government in accordance with section 224 of the Courts of Justice Act (chapter T-16).
1993, c. 48, s. 518.
519. The declaration of registration of a natural person described in paragraph 1 of section 2 and operating a business on 31 December 1993 must be presented to the enterprise registrar for deposit not later than 1 July 1994.
The declaration of registration of a partnership described in paragraphs 2 and 3 of section 2 and existing on 31 December 1993 must be presented to the enterprise registrar for deposit not later than 1 January 1995.

521. A registrant is exempted from the requirement of presenting the declaration contemplated in section 520 where such registrant not later than 1 January 1995 presents to the enterprise registrar, in accordance with the law, some other document containing at least the name and the address of the domicile of the registrant, for deposit in the register. Such deposit shall effect registration.
The registrant shall, however, within 60 days after such deposit, update the information concerning the registrant by transmitting to the enterprise registrar, for deposit in the register, a declaration including the information described in sections 10 to 12, accompanied with the payment of the fees determined by regulation under section 526. If the registrant fails to deposit such declaration, the enterprise registrar may, ex officio, strike off the registration by depositing an order to that effect in the register.
1993, c. 48, s. 521; 2002, c. 45, s. 551.

1993, c. 48, s. 522.
523. Chapter II applies to a declaration of registration presented under section 519 or 520.
The declaration of registration of a natural person described in paragraph 1 of section 2 and operating a business on 31 December 1993 or the declaration of registration of a partnership described in paragraph 2 of section 2 and existing on 31 December 1993 which contains a name that includes the term “enregistré”, “et compagnie”, an abbreviation of those terms or any other word or phrase that indicates more than one member or that one or more persons make use of the name of another person in accordance with article 1834b of the Civil Code of Lower Canada or with section 10 of the Companies and Partnerships Declaration Act (chapter D-1) is deemed not to contravene subparagraph 4 of the first paragraph of section 13.

1993, c. 48, s. 524.
525. Every person or partnership subject to registration or person referred to in section 5 that fails to present a declaration in accordance with section 519 or 520 is guilty of an offence and is liable to the fine set out in section 107 or 109.
