123. Service of a motion to institute proceedings or of any other written proceeding is made by leaving a copy of the proceeding for the person for whom it is intended.
Personal service may be made by handing a copy of the proceeding to him in person, wherever he may be; domiciliary service may be made by leaving the copy at his domicile or residence, with a reasonable person residing therein.
Service may also be made at the domicile elected by the person for whom it is intended, or upon the person indicated by him.
If he has no known domicile or ordinary residence within Québec, service may be made by leaving a copy of the proceeding in a sealed envelope addressed to the person for whom it is intended at the person’s business establishment or place of work, speaking to a reasonable person in charge thereof.
If he is not represented by attorney, service of any written proceeding other than a proceeding to institute a suit may be made in accordance with article 140. If that person has no known domicile or ordinary residence within Québec, service may be made at the office of the court.
