Since 2009, Quebec City uses Irosoft's LIMS suite to draft and
consolidate its municipal regulations. LIMS will now enable the
municipality to publish these regulations.
MONTREAL, Feb. 2, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Irosoft Inc., an international
leader in Acts and regulations management, is proud to announce the
official launch of Quebec City's publishing website, used to
disseminate its regulations. The site offers several unique
functionalities, such as the ability to search through the history of
modifications made to a regulation (i.e. point in time), to activate
hyperlinks pointing to historical references and to publish annual
regulations. Quebec City thus becomes the first Canadian municipality
to offer its up-to-date regulations and their legislative history to
the general public. Since 2009, Quebec City also uses the LIMS suite to
draft and update its regulations before publishing them.
Since the 2002 municipal mergers in Québec, several municipalities have
had difficulty standardizing and updating the regulations of merged
cities, because the software generally used to draft legislation has
major limitations. Furthermore, regulation consolidation is usually a
laborious and meticulous task.
Quebec City overcame these problems by using Irosoft's LIMS suite. A
specialized legislative drafting environment helps legal drafters
automate certain technical tasks. The Consolidation module imports
amending regulations and enables the computer-assisted application of
these modifications to the current regulation. The Publishing module
also enables the real-time updating of the municipality's public
websites and intranet.
Irosoft is an international leader in legislative document management,
production, and publication. Its LIMS suite now enables, among other
things, the publication of legislative documents according to new open
data and Semantic Web standards.
Quebec City's new website is available at the following address (in French only for this first release): http://reglements.ville.quebec.qc.ca/fr/
