MONTREAL, March 7 /CNW Telbec/ - The Régie du logement has, as its
mission, to promote conciliation between landlord and tenants. As such, the
Régie now offers a conciliation service in all its offices.
    Since February 4th 2008, whenever a party files an application or motion
at any of the Régie's offices, he or she will be offered the possibility to
participate in the conciliation process in order to settle a dispute between
the parties.

    Conciliation: How to settle a dispute out of court.

    Conciliation is a means to settle disputes by providing the parties with
the opportunity to negotiate with the assistance of a conciliator, an
impartial person, in order to find a suitable agreement.
    The conciliation process will have absolutely no effect on a hearing date
in the event that the parties fail to reach an agreement.

                                 Please note

    Conciliation will not be offered automatically in certain cases such as
    applications related to non-payment of rent, preservation of dwellings
    and the fixing of the rent. However, the service is made available at the
    plaintiff's request.

    For any additional information related to this service, please
