Agglomeration Council

January 1, 2006, marked the rebirth of the cities of L’Ancienne-Lorette and Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures. By virtue of the Act Respecting the Exercise of Certain Municipal Powers in Certain Urban Agglomerations, the Québec City agglomeration, composed of the City of Québec and the two reconstituted municipalities, was created that same day.

This new law has led to certain jurisdictions being shared between the three cities and certain others becoming exclusive local responsibilities, namely local services.


The Agglomeration Council is made up as follows:

  • Asselin, Marie-Josée – Québec City Councillor
  • Boucher, Marie-Pierre – Québec City Councillor
  • Coulombe-Leduc, Mélissa – Québec City Councillor
  • Juneau, Sylvain – Mayor of Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures
  • Marchand, Bruno – Mayor of Québec City
  • Mercier Larouche, Maude – Québec City Councillor
  • Pageau, Gaétan – Mayor of L’Ancienne-Lorette
  • Villeneuve, Claude – Québec City Councillor
  • Weiser, David – Québec City Councillor



The agglomeration council is responsible for decisions in the following areas:

  • Realty assessment
  • Public transportation
  • Road maintenance on agglomeration thoroughfares
  • Water supply
  • Water purification
  • Elimination and reclamation of waste matter
  • Monitoring and development of municipal waterways
  • Economic development
  • Social housing and aid for the homeless
  • Drug addiction and prostitution prevention
  • Public safety (Police Department, Fire Department, Civil Security Office, 9-1-1 emergency call center, municipal court)


For their part, the municipal councils and borough councils are responsible for the following:

  • Adopting and implementing master plans, adopting bylaws, and processing spot zoning applications
  • Issuing construction and renovation permits
  • Building and maintaining local aqueduct and sewer conduits
  • Collecting and transporting waste.
  • Maintaining and clearing local roadways
  • Building, maintaining, and managing sports and cultural facilities, libraries, and parks (not including shared facilities and equipment)

Expense sharing

City of Québec tax notices indicate which portion is set aside for expenses shared by all three cities and how much goes toward local services.

Taxpayers from L’Ancienne-Lorette and Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures receive two tax notices.
