59. Each of the professional orders variously known as the Ordre professionnel des avocats du Québec, the Ordre professionnel des notaires du Québec, the Ordre professionnel des comptables agréés du Québec, the Ordre professionnel des comptables en management accrédités du Québec, the Ordre professionnel des comptables généraux licenciés du Québec and the Ordre professionnel des administrateurs agréés du Québec may enter into an agreement with the Authority setting out the responsibilities of the order with regard to those of its members who wish to use the title of financial planner.
While such an agreement is in force, the provisions of this Act relating to financial planners, with the exception of the penal provisions, do not apply to such members.
However, the provisions of this chapter do not apply to a member of an order who holds a certificate issued by the Authority in a sector other than financial planning or who is an executive officer or employee of a firm registered for a sector other than financial planning, where the member acts in the field of financial planning for the firm.
