97.2. The Authority may, by by-law, make subject to the payment of transportation dues any work exceeding $782,308 in value and carried out to
(1) erect a building;
(2) modify a building, including redeveloping or rebuilding it, or increasing its floor area; or
(3) change the use of a building.
The dues correspond to the product obtained by multiplying the rate prescribed by the by-law by the floor area covered by the work, delimited according to the method prescribed by the by-law. The terms governing the dues must be consistent with those set out in the Authority’s financing policy.
Dues specific to an agreement entered into under section 8 cannot apply to a zone situated outside the public transit authority’s area of jurisdiction.
The following work may not be made subject to the payment of transportation dues:
(1) work covering a floor area of less than 186 m2; and
(2) work carried out on an immovable forming part of an agricultural operation described in section 36.2 of the Act respecting the Ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation (chapter M-14).
The amount of $782,308 set in the first paragraph is adjusted by operation of law on 1 January of each year by a rate corresponding to the variation in the average all-items Consumer Price Index for Québec excluding alcoholic beverages, tobacco products and recreational cannabis for the 12-month period ending on 30 September of the year preceding the year for which the amount is to be adjusted.
The adjusted amount is rounded down to the nearest dollar if it includes a dollar fraction that is less than $0.50, or up to the nearest dollar if it includes a dollar fraction that is equal to or greater than $0.50. The application of this rounding rule may not decrease the amount below its pre-adjustment level.
The Minister publishes the adjusted amount in the Gazette officielle du Québec.
