The Office de la protection du consommateur can only give you access to documents and information it has obtained in the exercise of its duties. It therefore cannot send you information about you held by a merchant or another public body.
Refer to the Commission d’accès à l’information website for:
- the list of concerned public bodies and persons in charge of an Act respecting access for each of these bodies;
- the obligations of private companies (in French only) with regard to personal information.
Filing a request with the Office
To be admissible, a request for access to a document or information must be specific enough for the document or information to be located. Fees may be charged for the reproduction of documents. Please note that only decisions stemming from a written request are subject to an application for review by the Commission d'accès à l'information.
