Éducaloi’s mission is to inform Quebecers about their legal rights and responsibilities. We don't answer legal questions about specific situations or give advice about what to do in a specific situation.

If you need legal information or advice about a specific situation, here is a list of places to turn:

Lawyers and Notaries

Find a Lawyer or Notary

The website of the Québec Bar (lawyers' association) has some useful tools: 

The JurisRéférence website also has search tools:

You don't know any notaries? The website of the Chambre des notaires du Québec (notaries' association) has a way to search for a notary using various search criteria, including language and region.

La Chambre des notaires also has a bilingual legal information help line that lets Quebecers speak to a notary free of charge:1-800-668-2473. You can also ask questions by email: go to the pages on the website dealing with 1-800-Notaire 2.0. (The website is in French only.)
