79. Notwithstanding section 9 of the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information (chapter A-2.1), no person has a right of access to the documents contemplated in the second paragraph of section 78, except the graphic register the preparation and updating of which are provided for by the regulation under paragraph 1 of section 263 and by the Manuel d’évaluation foncière du Québec to which the regulation refers.
However, any person may examine such a document respecting the immovable of which he is the owner or the occupant or respecting the business establishment of which he is the occupant, if that document has been used as the basis for an entry on the roll concerning that immovable or business establishment and has been prepared by the assessor. The same applies to a person having filed an application for review or to an applicant with respect to the immovable or business establishment in respect of which the application for review or a proceeding brought before the Tribunal has been made. The right to examine a document granted in this paragraph is subject to section 79.1.
In addition to the local municipality and the municipal body responsible for assessment, the Minister may examine such a document prepared by the assessor and obtain a copy thereof without cost.
