Access to documentation

The City Clerk is responsible for the Access to Documentation requests according to the requirements of the law. Consequently, any request for information or documents should be addressed to the city clerk and clearly state the nature and the object of the request. The City Clerk will then study the request and will render the decision on all requests for access to documents. All requests for revision on the decision must be sent to the Commission d’accès à l’information  within 30 days of the decision.

Bilingual status

The Office québécois de la langue française (OQLF) requires that we post their letter on our website. In this letter, the OQLF reveals that only 46 percent of residents are “mother-tongue English”. The OQLF states that this doesn’t fulfil the “condition” for bilingual status (ie, 50 percent mother-tongue English). From 2001 to 2022, this “condition” applied only to municipalities making an application to receive the bilingual status. With the passage of Law 96, the “condition” now applies to municipalities who already have the status. However, a municipality can keep its bilingual status if it adopts a resolution with 120 days of the date on the letter.

The City of Côte Saint-Luc adopted the necessary resolution, in spite of the fact that we believe bilingual status to be an acquired right.

This is the confirmation letter from the OQLF that it received the resolution from Côte Saint-Luc and we can maintain our bilingual status.

Note: Having a bilingual status doesn’t mean the city is required to provide services in English—it simply means the city has the option to do so. For example, even in a city where English is the first language for 70 percent of the population, it’s legal to issue tax bills in French only. Why is that? Because bilingual status allows—but does not demand—the use of English. To contrast, consider New Brunswick. In that province, as soon as the population of a municipality has 20 percent of people who prefer French or English as their official language, that municipality is required to provide all services in both languages. It’s not just an option there—it’s a requirement.
