The Secretary-General and General Counsel is responsible for the University Secretariat, which oversees the university’s policies, legal affairs and governance as well as institutional records management and archives, translation services, complaints process and standards of conduct.
The Secretary-General is also responsible for the application of access to information requests and the protection of personal information. For more information, please consult the guidelines. The guidelines were created to explain and demystify the applicable law - An Act respecting Access to Documents held by Public Bodies and the Protection of Personal Information, R.S.Q., chapter A-2.1 - for the members of the Concordia Community. They set out, in a non-legalistic manner, the University’s obligation to protect personal information as well as the public’s right of access to documents and to information concerning them. The Guidelines set out the procedures that a person may follow to obtain access to documents held by the University which concern them and/or request the correction of those documents. The Guidelines also provide information about some of the restrictions to the right of access.
Access to information requests should be sent to Frederica.Jacobs@concordia.ca or mailed to the University Secretariat.
