Increase in the Municipal Tax for 9-1-1 Service as of January 1, 2024
On June 7, 2023, a draft regulation amending the Regulation respecting the municipal tax for 9-1-1 service was published in the Gazette officielle du Québec. In it, the Quebec Minister of Municipal Affairs announced that the municipal tax for 9-1-1 service will increase from $0.46 to $0.52. This increase will apply as of January 1, 2024, and is designed to ensure the long-term funding of Quebec's 9-1-1 emergency centers.
In addition, as of January 1, 2025, the amount of the tax will be indexed each year according to the annual variation in the average consumer price index in Quebec, for the 12-month period ending on June 30 of the year preceding that for which the amount of the tax is to be indexed.
Thus, no later than September 30 of the year preceding the year for which the amount of the tax is to be indexed, the minister will publish the result of the indexation in Part 1 of the Gazette officielle du Québec.
