Citizen Round Table
We want to hear you!

The Citizen Round Table is a consultation on how to facilitate the participation of Québec citizens in parliamentary work and activities.

Taking Part in a Public Consultation

A parliamentary committee may hold a consultation on a matter of public interest either on its own initiative or under an order of reference from the National Assembly, in which case it will seek input from individuals and organizations. Those wishing to take part may either file a brief with the committee or ask to be heard by it.

Commenting on a Subject under Study

MNAs examine matters of public interest at various times and in various forms: when the Assembly refers a matter to a parliamentary committee or a parliamentary committee itself decides to take a matter up; when a bill or draft bill is introduced; or when a public consultation is held. In most instances, the public is invited to comment on the subject at hand. The comments received are then submitted to the MNAs for their consideration.

Starting, Signing or Viewing a Petition
