The function of the Bureau général de dépôts pour le Québec of the Ministère des Finances du Québec is to administer sums of money and securities held on deposit for the purposes of, among other things, suretyships and guarantees under laws, regulations, directives and agreements by companies, organizations, individuals (extrajudicial deposits) and courthouses (judicial deposits). The sums are held on deposit and therefore do not belong to the State (see the Financial statements of the General Deposit Office as of March 31, 2022 PDF document., in French only).
