Access to Information
Procedure to Access Information
As a public body, the City of La Malbaie is subject to the provisions of the Act respecting access to documents held by public bodies and the protection of personal information. Consequently, the City of La Malbaie must allow access to the documents it holds subject to the exceptions provided for in the Act.
Documents held by the City that are not public are covered by the Act. Documents of a public nature are among others; the minutes, resolutions and by-laws of the city, the documents to which these documents refer and the roles and registers of the city.
Therefore, to access any other document, it is required to make an access to information request.
