81. The register is public.
However, on application by the holder of an investigation agent licence, the Bureau may decide that the information the register contains about the licence holder is to remain confidential if it is satisfied that disclosure of the information would be likely to hinder the licence holder’s activities and pose a serious threat to the licence holder’s safety. The decision to keep the information confidential ceases to have effect on the expiry of the licence, unless the Bureau grants an extension on application by the licence holder on renewal of the licence. The extension may not exceed the term for which the licence is renewed. Subsequent extensions may be granted on the same conditions.
This section applies despite sections 9 and 57 of the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information (chapter A-2.1).
