Act respecting school elections to elect certain members of the boards of directors of English-language school service centres
(CQLR, c. E-2.3)

Note : The title of the Act respecting school elections was amended by section 190 of the Act to amend mainly the Education Act with respect to school organization and governance (2020, chapter 1, Bill 40), which came into force on February 8, 2020.

On August 10, 2020, the decision in Quebec English School Boards Association v. Procureur général du Québec (2020 QCCS 2444) granted a stay of application of the Act, but only with respect to English-language school boards.

This working document therefore incorporates the provisions of the Act respecting school elections in force before the enactment of the Act to amend mainly the Education Act with regard to school organization and governance (Bill 40). These provisions have also been adapted to take into account the process for designating members of the boards of directors of French-language school service centres, a process that remains governed by the Education Act as amended by Bill 40.

The content of this working document is not official. It represents a tool placed at your disposal to support you in your work and in preparing for the school elections on November 1, 2020.
