E-2.2 - Act respecting elections and referendums in municipalities

Full text
449.1. The budget of a municipality having a population of 20,000 or over must include an appropriation to provide for payment of an allowance as reimbursement for expenses incurred and paid for the day-to-day administration of an authorized party, the propagation of its political program and support for its members’ political activities. The allowance may not be used to pay election expenses or repay the principal of or pay the interest on a loan which has been paid into an electoral fund.
The appropriation must be equal to the product obtained by multiplying the following amount by the number of electors whose names are entered on the list of electors prepared for the last general election:
(1)  $0.63 in the case of a municipality having a population of 20,000 or over but under 500,000;
(2)  $0.89 in the case of a municipality having a population of 500,000 or over.
The appropriation is apportioned among the authorized parties that obtained at least 1% of the votes cast at the last general election.
One quarter of the appropriation is apportioned in proportion to the number of votes validly obtained by the candidate for the office of mayor of each authorized party at the last general election, expressed as a percentage of the total number of votes validly obtained by all the candidates for the office of mayor of all the authorized parties.
Three quarters of the appropriation is apportioned in proportion to the number of votes validly obtained by the candidate for the office of councillor of each authorized party at the last general election, expressed as a percentage of the total number of votes validly obtained by all the candidates for the office of councillor of all the authorized parties. If a candidate for such an office is elected by acclamation, the number of votes deemed validly obtained is equal to the average elector participation rate in each electoral district where a poll was held multiplied by the number of electors whose names are entered on the list of electors in the electoral district in which the candidate was elected, and that number is taken into consideration for the purpose of computing the total number of votes obtained by all the candidates. If all the candidates for the office of councillor of all the authorized parties are elected by acclamation, three quarters of the appropriation is apportioned in proportion to the number of electors whose names are entered on the list of electors of each candidate’s electoral district, expressed as a percentage of the total number of electors whose names are entered on the lists of electors of all the candidates’ electoral districts.
The amounts provided for in subparagraphs 1 and 2 of the second paragraph are adjusted on 1 January each year according to the change in the average Consumer Price Index for the preceding year, based on the index established for the whole of Québec by Statistics Canada. The second decimal of the amount computed on the basis of the index is rounded off to the higher digit when the third decimal is equal to or greater than 5 and, if not, to the lower digit. The Chief Electoral Officer shall publish the results of the adjustment in the Gazette officielle du Québec.
