291. Despite any legal provisions relating to the revival of a dissolved company, the registrar may, on request, subject to the conditions determined by the registrar and on payment of the fee set out in this Act, cause a legal person dissolved before 1 January 1994 under the Companies Information Act (chapter R-22) to resume existence, by depositing an order to that effect in the register. The same applies to legal persons dissolved in a situation described in section 289 or in section 527 or 528 of the Act respecting the legal publicity of sole proprietorships, partnerships and legal persons (chapter P-45).
The deposit of the order in the register effects the registration of the legal person, who resumes existence as of the date of the deposit.
Subject to the rights acquired by any person, the legal person is deemed never to have been dissolved.
