13.1. In addition to the provisions of this Act allowing the Institut to obtain information from a public body, the Government may designate information held by a public body so that it may, in accordance with this Act, be used by the Institut and communicated, for research purposes, to researchers attached to a public body, unless, in the latter case, the Government provides otherwise.
The information is designated by the Government on the joint recommendation of the Minister and the minister responsible for the public body holding the information. The Government shall identify the public body and may specify the conditions, terms and limits applicable to the use and communication of certain designated information by the Institut, in particular to ensure the protection of personal information.
The Institut shall, as soon as possible, send a copy of the designation document to the Commission d’accès à l’information.
