We live in a world where laws are increasingly complex and affect every aspect of our daily lives.

Whatever the event – the purchase of a home, a business start-up, a marriage, the birth of a child, the illness or death of a loved one – there are legal rules to protect your future and that of your family. Are you familiar with them? Do you know the difference between legal myths and realities?

1-800-NOTAIRE is a free service which provides the entire population of Québec with access to basic legal information. Since it was first launched in March 2007, the service has answered over 250,000 calls from every part of Québec.

With a team of 11 notaries who have over 20 years of experience, the 1-800-NOTAIRE service answers questions from Quebecers by providing general legal information. As it is not the mission of the Chambre des notaires to issue legal opinions, the answers provided must not be taken as such. To receive a personalized legal opinion, the user must consult a notary who is duly listed on the roll of the Order.

1-800-NOTAIRE offers answers by phone.

Telephone service
