Where a victim having no spouse or dependants dies, and his contribution of work ensured the viability of a family enterprise whose principal owner was related to him by blood or adoption, and his remuneration was less than it would have been had he worked for a non-family enterprise, that owner and every other owner of the enterprise similarly related to the victim are entitled to a death benefit equivalent to the minimum indemnity contemplated in subsection 3 of section 37 for a dependant.
The Régie shall distribute the benefit among the owners in proportion to the interest of each in the enterprise. Each owner is entitled to his share of the benefit for a maximum period of five years, or till death.
