CCQ-1991 - Civil Code of Québec

Full text
199. Where the court declares the father and mother of a minor deprived of parental authority without appointing another tutor, the director of youth protection having jurisdiction in the child’s place of residence becomes by virtue of his office legal tutor to the child unless the child is already provided with a tutor other than his father and mother.
The director of youth protection is also, until the order of placement, legal tutor to a child he has caused to be declared eligible for adoption or in whose respect he has received a general consent to adoption, except where the court has appointed another tutor.
