Amendment to the Act Respecting the Legal Publicity of Enterprises

As of February 11, 2013, the Act respecting the legal publicity of enterprises will contain new provisions with respect to the prevention of skin cancer that may be caused by artificial tanning.

Consequently,

  • any natural person who operates a tanning salon and whose enterprise name includes their first and last names must be registered in the enterprise register;
  • operating a tanning salon under a misleading name or a name liable to create an erroneous impression about the health effects or health risks of artificial tanning will be prohibited;
  • any tanning salon operator carrying on a business on February 11, 2013, must declare in the enterprise register, by August 11, 2013, the name and address of any establishment offering artificial tanning.

Please update the information in your file, if applicable, by using My Office to file a current updating declaration.
