13. A non-refundable fee of $1,562 is payable on the filing of a permit application.
That amount is adjusted on 1 April of each year based on a rate corresponding to the annual change in the overall average Québec consumer price index without alcoholic beverages and tobacco products for the 12-month period ending on 31 December of the preceding year, as determined by Statistics Canada.
The adjusted amount is reduced to the nearest dollar if it contains a fraction of a dollar less than $0.50; it is increased to the nearest dollar if it contains a fraction of a dollar equal to or greater than $0.50.
The Minister is to publish the results of the adjustment in the Gazette officielle du Québec or give notice by such other means as the Minister considers appropriate.
