To request a copy of an event report, calling card, qualified technician certificate or any other document, you must send your written and signed request by completing the Information access request form (in French). The request and payment (cash or Interac) can be made in person at the Police Department. To proceed by mail, you must send the application and payment by money order to the attention of:

Procedure for making an access to information request

To obtain copies of reports containing your personal information, you should send your request to the person in charge of access to information and protection of privacy by using the access to information request form. You only have to print it, fill it out and sign it before sending it to us by mail or email.

Please note that the request must be detailed enough to allow us to find the relevant documents (e.g., author, subject, file number, date, place, brief description of the event and given name, family name and date of birth).

Your personal information may not be forwarded to a third party without your written consent, except in circumstances provided for under the Act respecting access to documents held by public bodies and the protection of personal information.

*Personal information concerning third parties and information having an impact on the administration of justice and public security is not usually accessible.

Coroner

All files concerning a violent or unnatural death must be the subject of a coroner’s investigation. A request for access concerning this type of file should be sent to the coroner’s office at:

Coroner en chef Édifice Le Delta 2, bureau 390
2875, boulevard Laurier Québec (Québec) G1V 5B1
Téléphone : 418 643-1845
Sans frais : 1 866 312-7051
Télécopieur : 418 643-6174

Accident report

To obtain a copy of an accident report, you have to contact your insurance company that will contact the police department to obtain it on your behalf, or complete the Information access request form (French).

Timeline

The timeline set by law is 20 calendar days. On an exceptional basis, this delay can be extended by 10 days. In such a case, an extension notice will be given to you in writing.

Identity

You must indicate your name, your current full address and your telephone number. Do not forget to put your signature at the bottom of the letter or form. In all cases, you must attach a copy of a piece of government-issued identification such as a health insurance card, driver's license or passport. The ID must include your signature and photo and the copy must be easily readable.

Cost

Fees may apply under the Règlement sur les frais exigibles pour la transcription, la reproduction et la transmission de documents et de renseignements personnels. To proceed by mail, you must send the application and payment (check or money order) to the address above.

Restrictions to the right to access a document

The Service de police de la Ville de Châteauguay can, according to the grounds set out in the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the protection of personal information (the Access Act), refuse access to a document in whole or in part when its disclosure would be likely to have an impact on the administration of justice and public security, e.g.:

• Hinder the progress of an investigation;
• Reveal investigation methods;
• Jeopardize a person’s security;
• Harm a person who has provided information or who is the subject of information.

The same would apply if the personal information contained in the request did not concern you.

 

Personal information

Personal information, that is, information that makes it possible to identify a physical person, is confidential except in certain cases envisaged by law. As a result, the release of such information can only be authorized by the person who is the subject of such information. The access to information officer is responsible for protecting such information. 

In case of refusal

If access to a document or personal information is denied, the person making a written request may, within 20 days of the decision of the person responsible, submit a request for review to the Commission d'accès à l'information. For more information, contact the Commission d'accès à l'information at 1-888-528-7741 (toll-free).

It should be noted that only requests made in writing may be subject to review by the Commission d'accès à l'information.

Useful links

Any other request for documents held by the Ville de Châteauguay should be addressed in writing to the person in charge of access to information and the protection of privacy.
