CLARIFICATION CONCERNING THE REFERENCE TO THE BROKER IN SUSPENSION NOTICES
Please note that the reference to the broker who employs the suspended member or authorizes him to act is not in any way meant to suggest that the member was employed by or authorized to act on behalf of this broker when he committed the offences of which he was found guilty.
The Real Estate Brokerage Act and the regulations thereunder require that the notice of suspension of certificate refer to the member’s place of business at the time of the suspension or, failing that, his last place of business. This “place of business” is the office of the broker who employs him or authorizes him to act or, failing that, the last broker that employed him or authorized him to act. The purpose of this measure is to protect the public and allow it to properly identify the member whose certificate is suspended.
Notice of suspension of the certificate

NOTICE is hereby given that Mrs. Jennifer Theriault, affiliated real estate agent (Certificate No. D6680), formerly employed by or authorized to act on behalf of Proprio Direct Inc., chartered real estate broker (Certificate No. A3180), whose establishment is located at 3899, Autoroute-des-Laurentides, Suite 200, in Laval, has been found guilty by the Discipline Committee of the Association des courtiers et agents immobiliers du Québec, notably of the offences summarized below:
2nd count: On or around July 12, 2006, with respect to an immovable, signing as buyer on a promise to purchase for this immovable, whereas she represented the listing broker entrusted with the sale of the immovable under a brokerage contract;
the whole contrary to sections 1, 5 and 13 of the Rules of Professional Ethics of the ACAIQ.
4th counts: On or around August 28, 2006, receiving compensation for the sale of an immovable whereas she was the buyer of this immovable;

On October 5, 2009, the Discipline Committee ordered a suspension of Mrs. Jennifer Theriault’s certificate for a period of thirty (30) days on count No. 2 of the complaint, and a suspension for a concurrent period of thirty (30) days on count No. 4.
The decision of the Discipline Committee is enforceable from the date of the appeals deadline, i.e. December 3, 2009. The suspension of Mrs. Jennifer Theriault’s affiliated real estate agent’s certificate is therefore effective as of December 3, 2009 for a period of thirty (30) days.
Should the defendant’s certificate be suspended or expired at the date of the appeals deadline, the above suspension periods as well as the restriction from applying for reinstatement or issuance of any category of certificate shall become effective at the time of such application.
This notice is given in accordance with section 137 of the Real Estate Brokerage Act (R.S.Q., c. C-73.1).
