40.7. The Chief Electoral Officer shall obtain from the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec notice of any change in the name, address, date of birth or sex of a person whose name is entered on the permanent list of electors, and, where applicable, of the date of the person’s death and the corresponding address expiry codes. The Chief Electoral Officer shall also obtain from the Régie the name, address, date of birth and sex of any person of full age who has informed the Régie that he has acquired Canadian citizenship or has stated, on registering for the first time with the Régie, that he holds Canadian citizenship. The Chief Electoral Officer shall obtain the same information from the Régie concerning any person who is about to reach 18 years of age, at least six months before the person’s eighteenth birthday, and concerning any person who meets the criteria set out in subparagraphs 1 to 3 of the first paragraph of section 1 and whose name is not yet entered on the permanent list of electors.
If the Régie has been unable to identify an elector whose name is entered on the list of electors in its own file of insured persons, the Chief Electoral Officer may communicate with the elector concerned to verify the accuracy of the information held concerning the elector and may request that the elector correct or complete the information where necessary.
After receiving an advisory opinion from the Commission d’accès à l’information, the Chief Electoral Officer shall, on request, obtain from the Régie any other personal information needed to compile and update the permanent list of electors.
As well, the Chief Electoral Officer shall, on request, obtain from the Régie a list of all the residential addresses in Québec.
