Making an Access Request
If your access request is related to personal information about you, it must be made in writing. If it concerns our administrative documents, it can be made verbally or in writing.
Since only written requests can be reviewed by the Commission d'accès à l'information du Québec, we recommend that you send all requests in writing. To see a model of an access request, go to Request for access to personal information in Public Bodies on the Commission's website.
All access requests made in writing must contain enough elements to identify you, including at a minimum:
- your full name;
- your address;
- the number on the last notice of assessment you received;
- a daytme phone number;
- the title of the requested document or a brief description to help locate it;
- the period covered by your request.
Some personal information such as your social insurance number and birth date should never be sent by unsecured email.
All access requests must be sent to the person in charge of access to information below:
