134. The answers given or statements made by the person who requested an investigation or by a broker’s licence holder or a director or executive officer of an agency licence holder, and the documents prepared or obtained in the course of conciliation, mediation or arbitration may not be used nor are they admissible as evidence against a broker’s licence holder or a director or executive officer of an agency licence holder in judicial or quasi-judicial proceedings other than a hearing before the discipline committee into an allegation that the licence holder, including the licence holder’s director or executive officer, knowingly gave a false answer, made a false statement or produced a false document with the intent to mislead.
The members of the committees appointed under this Act, the syndic and the assistant syndics may not be compelled to disclose anything learned by them in the exercise of their functions. The same applies to conciliators, mediators or arbitrators, as well as to the persons who assist them during the settlement of a dispute, in respect of anything learned by them within that process.
Despite section 9 of the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information (chapter A-2.1), no person may have access to a document in a conciliation, mediation or arbitration record.
