More information

Me Sabrina Béland was appointed returning officer for the 2021 general election of the City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue by the Commission municipale du Québec. Her mandate during the election period is to see to the smooth running of the election and, as such, to train other election officials and direct their work.

You can reach the returning officer in any of the following ways:

By mail or in person:

Office of the returning officer
Ville de Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue
109 rue Sainte-Anne
Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue (Quebec) H9X 1M2

The returning officer can be met in person, by appointment only, Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The primary election official for each municipality is the municipality itself. Under the Loi sur les élections et les référendums dans les municipalités, the clerk, in the larger agglomerations, and the secretary-treasurer, in the less populous, are usually the returning officers.

However, the Act gives important responsibilities to the Directeur général des Élections du Québec (DGEQ), who “may, on request, provide the returning officer with all the assistance he/she needs to perform his/her duties” (art. 90 of the LERM). The DGEQ can also "provide information to the public", in particular through its Information Center and by broadcasting advertising. The DGEQ can also provide training on the application of the AERM to representatives and official agents of authorized candidates and political parties, as well as to returning officers. Also, he/she may, on his/her own initiative or at the request of an individual, investigate the application of a significant part of the AERM.
