Processing requests

Confidentiality measure

A confidentiality measure is a decision by the Lobbyists Commissioner, provided for in the Act (section 49). It makes it possible to conceal all or part of the information contained in a declaration to Carrefour Lobby Québec for a given period. Confidentiality of information is possible when lobbying activities concern an investment project and the disclosure of the information could seriously prejudice the economic or financial interests of an enterprise or client.
