Announcing the results of our municipal elections 

This is to notify residents that the Office of the Returning Officer will announce the results of the November 7 municipal elections after 9:30 p.m. that day (once all ballot boxes have been handed over the returning officer).

The announcement will take place in the chambers of the Municipal Council (1, route du Carrefour). Note that no more than 80 people are allowed into the chambers, including elections staff and candidates. An elections staff member will count attendees at the main entrance of the municipal offices.  

Also, please remember that, in compliance with public-health measures to counter the spread of Covid-19 during the 2021 municipal elections, those attending must wear a mask and maintain proper social distancing in the building.

We thank you in advance for understanding the need to limit the number of people in the chambers as we continue our efforts to bring the pandemic under control.

The election results will appear first on the Élections Québec website (https://donnees.electionsmunicipales.quebec/resultats.html?v=82015) and then on Val-des-Monts’ site (https://www.val-des-monts.net/50-lections-municipales).

Mail-in Ballots Available to Eligible Voters on the Electoral List

At its regular meeting on May 4, 2021, the Municipality of Val-des-Monts passed Motion 21-05-129, which allows mail-in ballots for all those appearing on the electoral or referendum list, be they regular voters or individuals allowed to vote as non-residents.

This measure is a first in Val-des-Monts, and Council authorized it to ease both voter access and the 2021 municipal elections overall as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. What’s more, mail-in ballots will allow more citizens to take part in the democratic process designed to make their voices heard at the municipal level.

Mail-in ballots will therefore be available to those meeting the following criteria and appearing on the official electoral list :

  1. Persons appearing on the electoral or referendum list as a registered voter or as someone authorized to vote in a capacity other than that of resident of Val-des-Monts for the elections on November 7, 2021.
  1. Residents of Val-des-Monts living in a private seniors residence listed in the registry provided under chapter S-4.2 of the Act Respecting Health Services and Social Services or living in a facility as described in the second paragraph of section 50.

Public notices


Election of the Warden of the MRC des Collines-de-l'Outaouais

For the first time, on November 7th, you will be invited to vote for your new MRC des Collines-de-l'Outaouais warden!

In the past, the MRC's Warden was chosen from among the mayors who sat on the Council of Mayors. At its meeting held on February 20, 2020, the Council of Mayors of the MRC des Collines unanimously adopted a bylaw according to which the choice of the Warden will henceforth be made by universal suffrage. This bylaw cannot be repealed.

The Warden represents not only the mayors, but also the citizens of his MRC. He or she represents the interests of several municipalities. The role of the Warden allows several municipalities to speak with one voice on common issues.

If you live on the territory of a municipality of the MRC des Collines-de-l'Outaouais, you must vote for the Warden in the municipality where you reside at the same time as the vote for your mayor and municipal councillor, on November 7, 2021.

If you live in a municipality, but own one or more properties elsewhere in the MRC des Collines-de-l'Outaouais, you must vote for the Warden in the municipality where you reside (where your permanent residence is located).

Municipal elections will be held on Sunday, November 5, 2017 in all Quebec municipalities. Visit this page regularly for all the up-to-date information regarding the electoral process to be conducted at the Municipality of Val-des-Monts.
