46.7. In light of the targets set under section 46.4, the Government, by order, sets a cap on the emission units that may be granted by the Minister for each period referred to in the first paragraph of section 46.6.
The Government may break the cap down into specific caps for the sectors of activity or classes of businesses, facilities or establishments it determines.
The Government publishes in the Gazette officielle du Québec a notice of the caps it intends to set, stating that the order may not be made before 60 days have elapsed after publication of the notice and that interested persons may, during that 60-day period, send comments to the person specified in the notice.
An order under this section comes into force on the date of its publication in the Gazette officielle du Québec or on any later date specified in the order.
