How to form a team

See field: municipal

Formation of a recognized team

The Act respecting school elections prohibits the creation of political parties. However, candidates with common interests can join together in a ticket recognized by the returning officer.

Application for recognition

For this purpose, a ticket must submit to the returning officer, by the stipulated deadline, a written application for recognition. The name of the ticket, if there is one, appears under the candidate's name on the ballot paper.

Period for submitting nomination papers

The period during which a person may file his duly completed nomination paper along with the appropriate documents at the office of the returning officer begins on the 40th day and ends at 5 p.m. on the 35th day preceding that set for the poll. Be sure to check the days and times when the office of your returning officer is open.

Responsibility of the Ministère

Please note that the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur is responsible for applying the Act respecting school elections. The last school elections were held on November 2, 2014.
