The Act respecting Access to Documents Held by Public Bodies and the Protection of Personal Information, grants citizens the right to access records held by public bodies.
Like any public body, the MRC Pontiac is subject to the Act respecting Access to Documents Held by Public Bodies and the Protection of Personal Information. Under section 98 of the Act, the person responsible for access to information has 20 calendar days from the date of receipt of the request to respond. However, this period may be extended by 10 days if necessary.
Fees may apply for the transcription, reproduction or transmission of documents. (See the bylaw to this effect on the Commission for access to information in Quebec‘s website.)
Appeal following a refusal
Section 135 of the Act provides that a person whose request is refused in whole or in part by the person responsible for access to information may ask the Commission to review this decision.
