PANDEMIC - Lesses may be exempt from paying rent during social confinement on the grounds of force majeure

Do the businesses that were forced to close during social confinement have to pay rent even though they couldn't operate? The question is on the mind of many lessors and lessees, and yet there are very few rulings on the issue. On July 16, 2020, the Honourable Peter Kalichman of the Superior Court of Québec rendered a decision that qualified the pandemic as force majeure in the context of the application of a commercial lease and consideration of a claim for the payment of rent for the months covered by the health emergency decree and confinement (Hengyun International Investment Commerce Inc. v. 9368-7614 Québec inc., 2020 QCCS 2251(CanLII)).
