|Municipal Courts of Quebec (Cours municipales du Québec)||
There are 86 municipal courts located across Québec, established by the Act respecting municipal courts. Each court is presided over by a municipal judge. Municipal courts have limited jurisdiction in civil matters, exercised mostly in connection with municipal tax claims. They hear cases involving offences under municipal by-laws and Québec statutes such as the Highway Safety Code. Municipal courts are also authorized to hear and decide cases concerning offences under Part XXVII of the Criminal Code, which are criminal offences punishable on summary conviction.
