27. Before suspending, revoking or refusing to issue or renew a licence or issuing an order under section 26, the Minister must notify the licensee in writing as prescribed by section 5 of the Act respecting administrative justice (chapter J‑3) and grant the licensee at least 10 days to submit observations. The Minister’s decision must include reasons and be notified in writing to the applicant or licensee.
However, the Minister may make a decision without being bound by that prior obligation if urgent action is required or to prevent irreparable injury. In such a case, the person affected by the decision may, within the time specified in the decision, submit observations to the Minister for a review of the decision.
