In order for the board of directors to validly deliberate and make decisions, the declarations of co-ownership generally provide that a minimum number of directors must participate to the meeting. This requirement is called the quorum.
The By-laws of the immovable generally provide all the director’s office specific provisions, including the duration of his term of office. If the By-laws are silent thereon, the legal term of one year will apply, in accordance with section 339 of the Civil Code of Québec, which specifies that “At the expiry of that period, their term continues unless it is revokedˮ. A director usually remains in office until the next annual general meeting of the co-owners, who will proceed to a re-election.
