126.96.36.199. From 1 April 1997, the fees payable provided for in Subdivision 1.3.6 shall be indexed on 1 April of each year according to changes in the All-Items Consumer Price Index for Canada for the 12-month period ending on 30 September of the preceding year. Those changes shall be computed on the basis of the ratio between the index for the above-mentioned period and the index for the period preceding that period. The index for a period is the average of the monthly indexes published by Statistics Canada. The fees shall be reduced to the nearest dollar where they contain a fraction of a dollar less than $0.50; they shall be increased to the nearest dollar where they contain a fraction of a dollar equal to or greater than $0.50.
The Minister shall inform the public through Part I of the Gazette officielle du Québec, and by such other means as he considers appropriate, of the indexing calculated under this section.
