"Every unit shall use the RCRP to organize, sort, destroy or permanently retain records produced or received during the course of their activities. Your main responsibility as a staff member is to apply the Records Management Program to documents whether they are on hard copy or electronic format. The retention periods included in the RCRP have been established in coordination with the concerned units, it has also been reviewed by OGC before being approved by Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ). Therefore, the RCRP has a legal value and every unit must apply the retention rules stated in the RCRP."
"The Records Classification and Retention Plan (RCRP) is the official guideline that sets up the filing system for all the records created, used and held by every employee of the University, it comprises also the retention period attached to each of these records and states their final disposition. RCRP is now the tool where you’ll be able to find all the information you need for managing your records. RCRP comprises 9 series divided in sub-series. These broad categories are subdivided into more precise activities and that’s where you’ll find the retention period and the final disposition of the records."
