Directions and Objectives

The National Assembly of Québec maintains relations with other parliaments and interparliamentary organizations.

In conducting interparliamentary and international relations, the National Assembly follows three principles:

  1. Pursuing its interparliamentary and international relations independently

Consult the National Assembly’s by-law on interparliamentary and international activities (French only, PDF 58 Ko).
