Your opinion counts: the Citizen round table is recruiting!

16 January 2023

Categories: Institutional

Élections Québec is currently issuing a call for applications to recruit the newest members of its Citizen round table. You have until February 10 at 4:30 p.m. to submit your application.

We are looking for 10 citizens aged 16 and over from all corners of Québec for the third term of the Citizen round table. Members will voice their opinions on issues such as Internet voting, democracy education, and voter turnout.

No prior knowledge or experience is necessary to participate!

You don’t have to be an expert on the topics that will be discussed to be part of the Citizen round table. In fact, we are looking more for the opinions of people who have some interest in these issues rather than extensive knowledge in these areas.

Meetings are usually held in person at our Québec City office. Travel and participation allowances are provided. The term of office is two years and can be renewed once. The Citizen round table will hold the first meeting of its new term in May 2023.

Visit the Citizen round table page to learn more and to apply!

We want this committee to be as representative of the public as possible. Therefore, we have established criteria to promote:

  • Diversity in gender identity, with a focus on gender parity and the participation of non-binary people
  • Representation of all age groups
  • Regional diversity
  • Socio-professional diversity
  • Participation of visible, ethnic, and linguistic minorities
  • Participation of Indigenous peoples
  • Participation of people with disabilities
  • Complementarity of applications

What is the Citizen round table?

The Citizen round table is a space for reflection and discussion that aims to encourage citizen participation and to fuel our thinking on electoral matters. The members, 12 citizens from all walks of life, are responsible for providing opinions to the Chief Electoral Officer and their teams. Topics include voting and voter turnout. The discussions are impartial, non-partisan, and in the interest of the people of Québec.
