Our missions

The Directeur général des élections (DGE) and the Commission de la représentation électorale (CRE) are independent and impartial institutions.

Our mission is to ensure the integrity of the electoral system. To achieve this goal, we:

  • ensure the successful holding of provincial elections;
  • provide support for the organizing of municipal and school board elections;
  • ensure the enforcement of political financing rules;
  • guarantee the full exercise of electoral rights;
  • act as public prosecutor; and
  • promote the democratic values of Québec society in electoral matters.

The CRE's mission is to draw up the electoral map of Québec and, where required, those of municipalities and school boards, by promoting the consultation of citizens and by ensuring them fair and equitable representation.
