International activities

Since 1992, the Chief Electoral Officer has been able, with the government's authorization, to provide his assistance and cooperation in the electoral field.

As an independent institution reporting to the National Assembly of Québec, Élections Québec plays an active role internationally by sharing his electoral expertise with countries and international organizations devoted to the promotion of democracy and the well-being of individuals.

In so doing, the Chief Electoral Officer wants to contribute to the development of knowledge and the strengthening of electoral systems. He relies on the custom-tailored transfer of his expertise to support election officials in their efforts to consolidate electoral processes.

Already in 1985, the Institution was collaborating in missions at the international level and was hosting delegations and visitors from various countries.
