Taxes - MNA

The members of the Council of Commissioners of the Central Québec School Board (CQSB) are very much aware that in some regions of CQSB’s vast territory the tax rate is much higher than that of the neighbouring French School Boards. This inequity is particularly prevalent in the Québec Metropolitan Region (QMR).


The CQSB is working diligently to ensure that the exodus of our taxpayers be stopped so that they too can benefit from a fair tax rate. Should we be successful in rectifying this injustice, our taxpayers could once again choose to pay their school taxes to the CQSB.


It is time for our elected official to find a solution. We wish to reiterate that the Minister has the power to impose a regional tax rate, as is the case now for the five French and English School Boards on the Island of Montréal. It is imperative that this inequity be rectified for our taxpayers!


Accordingly, we urge you to use the following form letters addressed to the Premier of Québec, Mr. Philippe Couillard and to your local MNA.


  1. You may download the letter to be sent to your local MNA here. Please type the date, your name, choose the MNA in your electoral division, print and sign it. It can then be either mailed or emailed to him/her, with a copy to the Premier and to Minister Sébastien Proulx.

The Premier's postal address is:

The Honorable
Mr. Philippe Couillard
Premier of Québec
Édifice Honoré-Mercier, 3e étage
835, boulevard René-Lévesque Est
Québec, QC G1A 1B4

Minister Proulx’s email address is: ministre@education.gouv.qc.ca

Together we can make change happen!
