70.1. If a child is in one of the situations described in section 207 of the Civil Code and the director has taken charge of the child’s situation, the director may apply to the tribunal to be appointed as tutor or to have a person he recommends appointed as tutor if he considers that tutorship is the measure most likely to ensure the interest of the child and the respect of his rights.
Following the application, the tribunal may appoint a tutor if it considers, in the interest of the child, that such a measure is appropriate.
The rules of the Civil Code apply to the tutorship, subject to the provisions of this Act.
