Payment of Municipal Tax for 9-1-1 Service

Telephone service providers collect the municipal tax for 9-1-1 service and remit it to us. We then remit the proceeds of the tax to the body responsible for distributing them to municipalities.

The municipal tax for 9-1-1 service is collected for every month during which the provider must provide, at any time, a telephone service to a client. For each telephone service, the tax is a set monthly amount per telephone number or, in the case of a multi-line service other than a Centrex service, per outgoing access line.

Monthly amount of the municipal tax for 9-1-1 service
Period Monthly amount
Before August 1, 2016 $0.40
August 1, 2016, to December 31, 2023 $0.46
January 1 to December 31, 2024 $0.52

As of January 2025, the amount of the tax will be indexed annually based on the average consumer price index for Quebec. Indexation reflects the variation for the 12-month period ending on June 30 of the year preceding the year for which the tax is to be indexed. Note that the consumer price index excludes alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, smokers' supplies and recreational cannabis.
