B-1, r. 3 - Code of ethics of advocates

Full text An advocate who decides to communicate information that is protected by professional secrecy may only communicate such information as is necessary to achieve the purposes for which the information is communicated. He shall, in connection with such communication, mention the following:
(1)  his identity and the fact that he is a member of the Barreau du Québec;
(2)  that the information he will communicate is protected by professional secrecy;
(3)  that he is availing himself of the possibility offered to him at law to set aside professional secrecy in order to prevent an act of violence, because he has reasonable cause to believe that there is an imminent danger of death or serious bodily injury to a person or group of persons;
(4)  the nature of the threats or act of violence he intends to prevent;
(5)  the identity and, if possible, the contact information for the person or group of persons exposed to the danger; and
(6)  the imminence of the danger in question.
