Democracy is recruting!

31 August 2020

Categories: Institutional, Jobs

Élections Québec is launching a competition to fill vacant returning officer positions in 49 electoral divisions across Québec.

Returning officer is not your ordinary job. It involves coordinating, with the support of Élections Québec’s experienced staff, the organization and conduct of provincial elections across an entire electoral division for a period of 10 years. Returning officers must be available full time during provincial by-elections, general elections and referendums.

For persons who are already employed full-time, the Election Act provides for an unpaid leave of absence from their employer to carry out their duties as a returning officer when a provincial election is held in their electoral division.

Interested in meeting the challenge? Find out if you are eligible to apply in one of the 49 electoral divisions and submit your application by visiting (in French only).

You have until September 17 at 4:30 p.m. to apply.

Put your talent to work for democracy!
