Access to information

Access to information is governed by its own authority, a testament to its sensitive and complex nature. Before requesting access to information and more importantly, before transmitting any information, it is important to fully understand the scope and limitations of this intricate law, namely in environmental matters. 


In practice

Information requested in the context of: 

  • Ministerial authorization requests
  • Operation, construction of allotment permits
  • Environmental studies
  • Spills of contaminants in the environment
  • Change of use, activity ceasing, business closings, voluntary or otherwise

We also assist our clients in formulating requests to access information and by drafting arguments to challenge requests made by third parties and, when required, represent our clients before the Commission d’accès à l’information
