G-1.02 - Act respecting the governance of state-owned enterprises

Full text
10. If a board member is sued by a third party for an act done in the exercise of the functions of office, the enterprise assumes the board member’s defence and pays any damages awarded as compensation for the injury resulting from that act, unless the board member committed a gross fault or a personal fault separable from those functions.
In penal or criminal proceedings, however, the enterprise pays the defence costs of the board member only if the board member was discharged or acquitted, or if the enterprise judges that the board member acted in good faith.
