Voting in Québec


This program allows francization schools and various organizations to introduce their clients to the Québec election system and the right to vote.

In this section

Voting in Québec allows newcomers to become familiar with the Québec election system. It also allows young people with different life paths and adults in training to learn how to exercise their right to vote. It is particularly intended for:

  • Francization schools
  • Vocational training centres
  • Social and professional integration organizations
  • Community organizations.

Participatory workshop

The purpose of the Voting in Québec participatory workshop is to introduce various clienteles to democracy, fundamental freedoms and the role of Élections Québec. These concepts are explored in interactive activities covering:

  • The election process in Québec
  • The composition of the government
  • Exercise of the right to vote
  • The conduct of an election
  • An election simulation (in-person workshops only).

The Voting in Québec participatory workshop is offered free of charge, in person (2 hours) or online (1.5 hours), depending on the availability of our training team.
