As a public body, the Town of Hudson is subject to An Act respecting Access to Documents held by Public Bodies and the Protection of Personal Information (chapter A-2.1) and has twenty (20) days to answer your request. However, in some cases, this delay may be extended up to 30 days.
It is important to note that the right of access is not absolute and a request may be denied for different reasons. One of these reasons stems from the second division of the above-mentioned Act, which is the need to protect personal information. For example, to consult a house plan, it is necessary to get a property owner’s prior consent before the Town can agree to give you access to their files. In this case, please fill out the Consent Form in order to obtain the concerned individual’s consent. Should a written request for information be denied, the applicant can choose to contact the Commission d’accès à l’information to ask for a revision of the Town’s decision.
