Access to Document
Access to documents is vested in the Registry Service.
Requests for access to a document under the Loi sur l’accès aux documents des organismes publics et sur la protection de renseignements personnel (la Loi). (An Act respecting access to documents held by public bodies & the protection of personal information)
It is important to distinguish between a request for access to a document and a request for information regarding a document. Subject to certain restrictions under the Act, only the first one provides the requested document and not an explanation of its contents.
To obtain information on the content, all questions should be directed to the concerned municipal service.Some restrictions may limit access to municipal documents.
Access to a document may be partial. That is, some extracts of the document could be concealed.
According to the Act, the employee responsible for “access to information” must provide a written acknowledgement of receipt to an individual who sends in a written request for access to a document. A response is usually received within 20 calendar days. However, this period may be extended in certain circumstances.
Access to documents is free and this means consultation “on site” only, with an appointment. However, transcription costs, transmission or reproduction may be requested.
