Municipal Elections and Electoral Districts
Elections take place every four years in over 1,100 municipalities in Québec for some 8,000 municipal officials, so they can represent the population and defend their interests in order to offer services that meet their needs. Elections are held simultaneously in all the cities of Québec on the first Sunday in November.
The next municipal elections will be held on November 7, 2021. Every voter will be called on to elect the mayor of the city and the councillor for their district.
To vote, the person must be on the voters list, 18 years old or older on the day of the vote and meet the following conditions on the September 1 preceding the election:
- Have Canadian citizenship
- Not be under curatorship
- Not have been deprived of their electoral rights
- Be domiciled in the municipality and have lived in Québec for at least 6 months OR have owned a property or occupied a business establishment for at least 12 months
Drawing electoral districts is a non-partisan process led by the Direction du greffe as part of its duties as director of municipal elections.
Each electoral district must have a comparable number of voters. To achieve this, the district maps may be reviewed in preparation for the coming elections. Châteauguay’s last review took place in summer 2020 and will be in effect for the municipal elections in 2021.
