Demix’s bid was rejected on the grounds that its authorization from the AMF had expired at the time the call for tenders was published. The contract was awarded to the second-lowest bidder, Eurovia. However, Demix had included in its bid its renewal application to the AMF, submitted more than 90 days before the expiry of the original certificate. Its authorization from the AMF was therefore still in effect, under the rules, at the time the bids were submitted. The borough had no choice but to rescind the contract awarded to Eurovia Québec Construction Inc. and award it to Demix.
