It is possible to make a decision without having a meeting. Article 354 of the Civil Code of Québec recognizes the value of a written resolution: "Resolutions in writing signed by all the persons qualified to vote at a meeting are as valid as if passed at a meeting of the board of directors, at a general meeting or at a meeting of any other organ”. Co-owners and directors may make a decision by the means of a resolution in writing, without any general meeting of the board of directors or meeting of co-owners being held as such. This mechanism is provided by law, when it is not essential for a meeting or a general meeting to be convened, since the salient points of the subject to be discussed have already been dealt with, to everyone’s satisfaction. This is to avoid cumbersome formalism, although written resolutions should be used with caution and parsimony.

Decisions taken by directors must be recorded and recorded in the minutes. This document is essential for a co-ownership, because it ensures the written preservation of the deliberations of the board of directors, as well as that of  the result of each vote, so that any co-owner and director can refer to it over time. It also shows that the meeting of the board of directors was held properly. As such, it must be as detailed and clear as possible, without repeating everything that was said at the meeting. Personal assessments and quotations should not appear in the minutes of the Board of Directors. In view of its importance, this document must respect a certain formalism.
