We are looking for citizens with varied experiences and profiles, of all ages and from all regions of Québec to form our new Citizen round table.
The Table will be made up of 12 people with an interest in the issues relating to elections and democratic life.
in the Citizen round table
As a member of the Citizen round table, you will act as an intermediary between the Québec public and our institution.
You will give us your opinion, in an impartial and nonpartisan manner, on matters relating to the holding of elections and the various issues in relation to our areas of activity, in the interest of the Québec population. More specifically, you will contribute to enriching our thinking and understanding by providing opinions and suggestions on subjects such as voting, political financing and ways of increasing participation in elections.
You don’t have to be an expert on our discussion topics to be part of the Citizen round table. We seek the opinions of citizens who are interested in these subjects, rather than possessing in-depth knowledge of these areas. Among other things, preparation documents will be provided to you ahead of meetings.
The Citizen round table
We are committed to taking into consideration the opinions provided by the Table. We will publish them on our website via the minutes of meetings, while ensuring the anonymity of the discussions. Every year, we will give an account of the Citizen round table’s work in our annual management report. The report will be tabled to the National Assembly of Québec.
If so, make sure you are eligible, then complete the required form no later than June 1, 2017, 4:30 p.m.
Because discussions will take place in French, you must be able to express yourself fluently in oral French so that you can contribute actively to the work of the Table.
You can be a member of a political party (federal, provincial or municipal) at the time of applying. However, if you become a member of the Citizen round table, you will be required to cancel your membership with any political party for the duration of your term.
|You must be available to attend the meetings of the Citizen round table, which will normally be held on Fridays, at a rate of two to three meetings per year.||The first meeting is planned for fall 2017. The dates for the following meetings will be set in consultation with the members.||To prepare for meetings, you will be required to take some time to read the documents provided in order to participate actively in the work.|
Short telephone interviews will take place in summer 2017 with the candidates retained from the first phase of the selection process, based on their application forms. Group interviews could take place at the beginning of fall 2017. The candidates chosen at this stage will be informed in due course.
