Resolution #9: User Pays concept (Official French version)

When society decides to allow the State to provide certain goods and services that are qualified as public, it's a good practice to make their cost reasonably born by individuals who are the primary beneficiaries. This approach reduces wasteful consumption of goods and services provided for free or at a fraction of the real cost and maintains equity between individuals and generations.

A CPQ government will deploy the most realistic possible application of this concept in most goods and services that the Québec government provides but, not increasing the overall tax burden of Québec taxpayers.
