6. All the amounts payable under this Regulation, including the fees provided for in Schedule I, except the amounts expressed as percentages and the nominal values provided for in section 33 and in the fourth paragraph of section 35, shall be adjusted on 1 April of each year according to the rate of increase in the general Consumer Price Index for Canada as published by Statistics Canada.
The rate of increase shall be calculated by determining the difference between the average monthly indexes for the 12-month period ending on 30 September of the preceding year and the average monthly indexes for the same period of the second preceding year. The adjusted amounts shall be rounded off to the nearest dollar, except for the rates per hectare, linear metre or square metre referred to in section 7, the second paragraph of section 12, subparagraph 1 of the second paragraph of section 24, subparagraph 3 of the first paragraph of section 28 and subparagraph a of paragraph 5 of section 1 of Schedule I.
The Minister shall inform the public of the annual adjustment by a notice published in the Gazette officielle du Québec and, if the Minister considers it appropriate, by any other means.
