55. The court shall sit at its chief-place. In the case of a common municipal court, the court may also, in respect of matters relating to the territory of one or two or more municipalities situated in a territory other than that in which the chief-place is situated, sit in the territory of one of those municipalities. In such a case, the municipalities must determine, in the agreement concerning the court, the place where the court will sit for matters relating to their respective territories.
Where the size of the territory of the municipality served by a municipal court so warrants, the municipal court may, in addition, sit at any other place in the territory that is indicated in the by-law or agreement establishing the court approved by the Government.
