The Financial Administration Act (CQLR, chapter A‑6.001), and in particular section VII.01 on Québec Savings Products, allows the Québec government to authorize the issue and sale of savings products as part of a borrowing plan, and to issue regulations defining the book‑based system created for the purposes of administering, issuing and selling Québec savings products and administered by the Minister of Finance through Épargne Placements Québec.

The method of operation and the characteristics of this book‑based system are determined in the Regulation respecting savings products.

The amounts and other conditions, details and features applicable to each issue and sale of savings products are set out by the Minister of Finance in ministerial decisions.

In this section, we encourage you to examine the applicable provisions of the Financial Administration Act and the Regulation respecting savings products.

We also recommend that you read the legal notes which set out the nature of Épargne Placements Québec’s liability regarding its website, as well as applicable rules on confidentiality, security and copyright.
