*Regarding the Des Monts district (1), Mr. Aimé Sabourin, the incumbent councillor, has been elected by acclamation.

The nomination paper is an official document available from the office of the returning officer of the municipality. The confidentiality of the people who request this form is maintained until the nomination paper is filed with the office of the returning officer and accepted by the same. Once it is accepted by the returning officer, the nomination paper becomes public and accessible to any person who requests it. This document is used to:

  • identify the citizen as a candidate;
  • specify the elected position for which they are running;
  • present at least 10 signatures of support, as required for candidacy by law.

These signatures may only be collected by the person who is submitting their candidacy or by a person appointed for this purpose on the nomination paper.

It is possible to withdraw your candidacy without penalty. To do this, you must submit a signed notice to this effect to the returning officer.

A candidacy withdrawal notice is also required to run for a different position before the end of the nomination period. A new nomination paper must then be filed.

If, as of October 6th at 4:30 p.m., which is the end of the period stipulated by law for the filing of nomination papers, only one person has filed a nomination paper for a position, they are proclaimed elected unopposed. Their term begins following their swearing-in, which must be done within 30 days of the proclamation of their election.

Campaign financing

Candidates are responsible for financing their electoral campaign. Specific rules apply which must be followed by everyone. Information will be available for the candidates at the office of the returning officer.
