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.

    CONCEPT OF DOMICILE

    A person’s domicile is the same place as under the Civil Code of Québec with regard to the exercise of their civil rights. For example:

    • the address provided for tax returns;

    • the address on the driver’s licence and other official identification documents.

    CAN A PERSON BE ON MORE THAN ONE VOTERS LIST?

    No one may be on more than one of the City’s voters list.

    If an individual is a voter in more than one capacity, the following order of priority will be used to choose the place of their registration:

    1. Their domicile;

    2. The sole ownership of a building;

    3. The sole occupation of a business establishment;

    4. The undivided co-ownership of a building;

    5. The co-occupation of a business establishment.

    In addition, if the person has rights to more than one building or business establishment, the one with the greatest value will be retained

    STUDENT, WORKER AND HOSPITALIZED PERSON

    An individual who leaves their domicile temporarily to work or study in the territory of another municipality may be considered to be domiciled either in the territory where their actual domicile is located or the territory where they reside for the purposes of their work or studies.

    A person who is accommodated in a hospital centre, a residential and long-term care centre or a rehabilitation centre within the meaning of the Act respecting health services and social services may be considered to be domiciled either at their actual domicile or at the address of the centre.

    SOLE OWNERS OF A BUILDING, SOLE OCCUPANTS OF A BUSINESS ESTABLISHMENT/UNDIVIDED CO-OWNERS OF A BUILDING AND CO-OCCUPANTS OF A BUSINESS ESTABLISHMENT

    The sole owners of a building, the sole occupants of a business establishment, the undivided co-owners of a building and the cooccupants of a business establishment who are not already on the voters list as a person domiciled have the right to be registered on the voters list of the Ville de Châteauguay if they meet the conditions required below:

    1. Be 18 years old on November 7, 2021;

    2. On September 1, 2021, be an individual, a Canadian citizen, not under curatorship or have been convicted, in the past five years, an offence relating to corrupt electoral practice;

    3. On September 1, 2021, be the sole owner of an immovable or sole occupant of a business establishment located in the territory of the Ville de Châteauguay for at least 12 months;

    4. For a sole owner of a building or a sole occupant of a business establishment;

    5. Send a signed registration request to the Returning Officer;

    6. For an undivided co-owner of a building or a co-occupant of a business establishment;

    7. Be designated by means of a proxy signed by the majority of co-owners or co-occupants who are qualified voters on September 1, 2021 and send the signed document to the Returning Officer.

    The registration request or the proxy duly completed and received by October 25, 2021 at 4.30 p.m. will be considered as a request for modification of the voters list. They take effect upon receipt and remain valid for any election, as long as they are not withdrawn or replaced in writing.

    CASES OF LEGAL PERSONS

    Only natural persons have the right to be on the voters list; legal persons cannot therefore be registered. Certain owners or co-owners of a building as well as certain sole occupants or co-occupants of a business establishment are not entitled to be registered on the voters list because they are legal persons.

  • 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.

    To see the current boundaries of the eight electoral districts in Châteauguay, please go to the interactive map .

  • To facilitate the conduct of the election in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the city council adopted a resolution allowing postal voting.

    Individuals on the voters list aged 70 and over will have the choice to opt for the postal voting method or to present themselves at the polling station on election day or during advance voting days.

    In addition, all electors domiciled in a hospital centre, CHSLD, rehabilitation centre or private residence for the elderly who are on the voters list under the Act respecting health services and social services can take advantage of postal voting. Voters domiciled who cannot travel for health reasons as well as their family caregiver domiciled residing at the same address can take advantage of the postal vote.

    To take advantage of postal voting, voters must apply in one of the following ways:

    • In writing, to the attention of: Returning Officer, Me George Dolhan, 5 Boulevard D’Youville, Châteauguay, Québec, J6J 2P8

    • By email:  commis.election@ville.chateauguay.qc.ca

    • By telephone: 450-698-3846

    All postal voting requests must be received at the office of the Returning Officer no later than October 27, 2021.
