64.1. An order entrusting a child to an alternative living environment ceases to have effect when the child reaches the age of 18 years.
However, if the child is entrusted to a foster family or an institution operating a rehabilitation centre or a hospital centre, the placement may continue in accordance with the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2) or the Act respecting health services and social services for Cree Native persons (chapter S-5) if the person consents to it.
An institution must allow a person who has reached the age of 18 years to stay there if the person consents to it and if his condition does not allow his return to or reinsertion in his home environment. The placement must be continued until the person’s admission to another institution or any of its intermediate resources or to a family-type resource where he will receive the services required by his condition is assured.
