Full text
123. In the case of a document other than an originating application, if there is a risk that personal notification could worsen the addressee’s physical or psychological condition, the court may authorize the delivery of the document, in a form that protects its confidentiality, to an authorized person within the health or social services institution or to the person in charge of the place where the addressee is, or to any other person designated by the court.
By way of exception, the court, if it considers that notification of an application concerning a person’s confinement in a health or social services institution for or after a psychiatric assessment would be harmful to the health or safety of the person concerned or of another person, or in an urgent situation, may exempt such an application from notification.
