School Board Elections

The Minister of Education is responsible for the application of the Act respecting school elections, which governs, among other things, how elections by English school boards are held and conducted. The Minister also has certain responsibilities with respect to school elections, including the right to authorize a school board to divide its territory into a different number of electoral divisions than the one set out in the Act.

Élections Québec is a neutral and independent institution that reports directly to the National Assembly. It supports English school boards in the organization of their elections and ensures compliance with financing rules for candidates.

The last school election was held on September 26, 2021.
