39. Except where otherwise provided by law, every decision of the board is final and is not subject to appeal.
The decision that was the subject of a notification in accordance with the first paragraph of section 32.1 and for which the person concerned has not availed himself, within the time prescribed, of his right to present observations and produce documents becomes, without further formality, final and executory at the expiry of that time or on any later date provided for therein. In other cases, it is executory once the persons concerned have received a copy of it or from the time indicated therein, provided that the persons concerned have previously received a copy or that they have been otherwise notified. In cases of suspension or revocation of a permit or authorization issued under the Act respecting liquor permits (chapter P-9.1), the notification of the notice of the decision may be sent to any reasonable person working in the establishment to which the permit applies.
However, a decision ordering the payment of a sum of money or prohibiting or ordering the performance of an act must, when it has become final, be filed in the office of the prothonotary of the Superior Court or the office of the clerk of the Court of Québec of the judicial district of the place where the matter originated according to their respective jurisdictions, taking into account the amount involved. The decision may then be executed as a final and non appealable judgment of the Superior Court or the Court of Québec, as the case may be, and shall have all the effects thereof.
