Being a public body, the Town is subject to An Act respecting access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information ( L.R.Q. c. A-2.1).
Said Act applies to documents kept by the Town in the exercise of its duties, whether it keeps them itself or through the agency of a third party.
Said Act applies whether the documents are recorded in writing or print, on sound tape or film, in computerized form, or otherwise.
Every person has a right of access, on request, to the documents held by the Town. The right does not extend to personal notes written on a document or to sketches, outlines, drafts, preliminary notes or other documents of the same nature.
Access to a document is free of charge. However, a fee not greater than the cost of transcription, reproduction or transmission of the document may be charged to the applicant.
The right of access applies only to documents that can be released without requiring computation or comparison of information.
To be receivable, a request for access to a document must be sufficiently precise to allow the document to be located.
A request for access may be made in writing or orally but only the written request gives a right to a review of the decision. The request must be addressed to the person in charge of access to documents for the Town.
To made a request for access to documents, please complete this form.
