Where the placement of a child domiciled outside Québec is made under an agreement entered into by virtue of the Youth Protection Act, the court also verifies that the procedure followed is as provided in the agreement.
Even if the adopter has not complied with the provisions of articles 563 and 564, the placement may be ordered for serious reasons and if the interest of the child demands it. However, the application shall be accompanied with a psychosocial assessment made by the director of youth protection.
