M-30, r. 1 - Regulation respecting the ethics and professional conduct of public office holders

Full text
12. A public office holder may not use for his own benefit or for the benefit of a third party information obtained in the performance or during the performance of his duties.
That obligation does not have the effect of preventing a public office holder from consulting or reporting to a specific interest group that he represents or to which he is linked, except where the information is confidential by law or where the board of directors requires that confidentiality be maintained.
