Complaints concerning the application of election laws or the services of Élections Québec

Have you witnessed an irregular or unusual situation? Do you want to report a potential violation of Québec’s election laws? Are you dissatisfied with the service provided by Elections Québec? You can file a complaint.

Prepare a message describing the situation as accurately as possible. Your message should include the following information, if you know it.

  • The names of the persons or organizations (political parties, candidates, citizens, etc.) involved in the situation
  • The facts and circumstances that lead you to believe that an offence has been committed
  • The reasons why you believe a law or regulation has been broken
  • The date, time, and place of the events
  • Supporting documents (photos, images, web addresses, etc.), if you believe they will be useful for our analysis
  • Your complete contact information, so that we can communicate with you (first name, last name, address, telephone number and email address)

Send your message by email to [email protected]. Keep the above in mind so that you can state the situation as accurately as possible.

You will receive an acknowledgement of your complaint no later than by the next business day. You will receive a response once we have processed your complaint.

Complaints are treated confidentially. See our Complaints policy (PDF) for more information.

Political financing whistleblower line

Do you want to report a problematic situation related to political financing? Contact us at 1-855-644-9529 or 418-644-9529, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can also leave a message at these numbers if it is outside of these hours of operation.

This line allows citizens to confidentially report problematic situations or political financing related irregularities.

Under the Election Act, the Act respecting elections and referendums in municipalities, and the Act respecting school elections to elect certain members of the boards of directors of English-language school service centres, we have the authority to review, audit, and investigate provincial, municipal, and school board political financing.

Any information that may be relevant to the fulfilment of this mandate is welcome.

Political financing includes:

  • Financing itself: political contributions, political party membership, loans, fundraising, and allowances
  • Election expenses related to an election as well as the current expenses of a political entity

  • Someone used your name to make a contribution: you made the contribution but were reimbursed (your name was used without your consent)
  • You witnessed an undeclared election expense
  • A company or organization paid an expense for a candidate or political party or helped them financially and you witnessed it
  • You witnessed the giving of cash to an elected person or political entity
