End of confinement

Confinement ends without further formality as soon as one or more of the following situations occur:

  • The doctor provides a certificate stating that confinement is no longer justified
  • A psychiatric examination report is not produced within the prescribed time limit
  • The period of confinement fixed by the Court ends
  • The Tribunal administratif du Québec renders a decision ending the confinement
  • A decision of a court of law orders the end of the confinement

The institution must immediately inform the person that their confinement has ended.
