Access to information request

Persons who so request have the right to consult documents belonging to public bodies; however, this right does not apply to the following:

  • personal notes written on a document
  • sketches
  • drafts
  • outlines
  • briefing notes
  • material similar to that listed above.

Under the Act Respecting Access to Documents Held by Public Bodies and the Protection of Personal Information, the right to access is subject to certain restrictions, and specific provisions protect your personal information.  

Gaining access to simply consult a document is free. That said, if you want your own copy of a document, you pay nothing more than the cost to transcribe or reproduce it. Reproduction fees are listed in the by-law governing the fee structure for goods, services and activities provided by the Municipality of Val-des-Monts.

Requests must contain

  • requestor’s full name ​
  • requester’s detailed contact information Coordonnées complètes du demandeur
  • subject
  • title and date of the requested document
  • name of the municipal service concerned
  • requestor’s signature
  • any other useful information.

Normally, the maximum processing time for requests is 20 days.
