5. For the Capitale-Nationale, Estrie, Montréal, Laval, Laurentides and Montérégie regions, the board of directors of each integrated health and social services centre identified in Schedule I administers the public institutions listed in that schedule with regard to that centre. The institutions so grouped pursue their activities in accordance with their permits.
The organizational structure of each grouped institution is that of the integrated centre, and the centre’s president and executive director and management personnel also exercise their functions and responsibilities with regard to the grouped institution, as do all of the centre’s boards, councils, authorities and, subject to section 203, committees.
A single budget is granted to the integrated centre for all its activities and those of the grouped institutions administered by its board of directors. The integrated centre files unified financial statements for all the institutions. The centre also files, in a similar manner, any act of an administrative nature, report or other document that must be filed by all the institutions.
