Full text
21. The holder of parental authority is entitled to have access to the record of a user who is a minor.
However, an institution shall refuse to give the holder of parental authority access to the record of a user under 14 years of age where the user has been the subject of an intervention within the meaning of section 2.3 of the Youth Protection Act (chapter P-34.1) or where a decision concerning him has been made under that Act, and the institution, after consulting the director of youth protection, determines that communication of the user’s record to the holder of parental authority will or could be prejudicial to the user’s health.
An institution shall also refuse to give the holder of parental authority access to the record of a user who is 14 years of age or over where, after being consulted by the institution, the user refuses to allow his record to be communicated to the holder of parental authority and the institution determines that communication of the user’s record to the holder of parental authority will or could be prejudicial to the user’s health. Where the user has been the subject of an intervention within the meaning of section 2.3 of the Youth Protection Act or where a decision concerning him has been made under that Act, the institution must first consult the director of youth protection. However, where the refusal of the user who is 14 years of age or over concerns information referred to in section 45.2, 50.1 or 57.2.1 or the second paragraph of section 70.2 of the Youth Protection Act, the holder of parental authority to whom the user has refused to allow information to be communicated may not receive the information concerned.
