Resolution #52: Reducing the number of Administrative Regions (Official French version)

The last complete reform of the Province’s administrative regions dates back to 1987. Since then, major advances in information and communications technologies (ICT), such as teleconferences and cloud computing, have made possible the administration of vaster regions with fewer resources.

For this reason, a government of the Conservative Party of Québec will reduce the number of administrative regions in Québec from 17 to 9:

  • Abitibi-Outaouais,
  • Bas-Saint-Laurent--Gaspésie,
  • Capitale-nationale--Chaudière-Appalaches,
  • Laurentides-Lanaudière,
  • Montérégie-Estrie,
  • Montréal-Laval,
  • Mauricie--Centre-du-Québec, and
  • Saguenay--Lac-Saint-Jean--Côte-Nord.
