September 10, 2022

From September 2 to 5, 2022, on behalf of The Montreal Gazette, Leger surveyed residents in Montreal and Laval about their voting intentions for the next Quebec provincial election on October 3, 2022.


  • If a provincial election were held today, 28% of decided voters who live in Montreal or Laval would vote for Dominique Anglade’s Québec Liberal Party, 24% would vote for François Legault’s Coalition Avenir Québec, 19% would vote for Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois’ Québec Solidaire Party and 13% would vote for Éric Duhaime’s Conservative Party of Québec.

  • 30% of Montreal and Laval residents think François Legault would make the best premier of Quebec, followed by Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois (14%) and Dominique Anglade (13%).
  • According to Montreal and Laval residents, the campaign issues that will have the most impact on who they vote for are inflation/cost of living (24%), healthcare (23%) and language/Bill 96 (18%).
  • 24% of Montreal and Laval residents think Dominique Anglade would be the strongest advocate for Anglophones at the National Assembly, followed by Balarama Holness (12%).


  • A web survey was conducted among 600 respondents 18 years of age or older who are eligible to vote in Quebec’s election and live on the Island of Montreal or Laval.
  • The data was collected from September 2 to 5, 2022.
  • No margin of error can be associated with a non-probability sample (web panel in this case). However, for comparative purposes, a probability sample of 600 respondents would have a margin of error of ±4%, 19 times out of 20.
  • The results were weighted according to gender, age, mother tongue, borough or city, education and presence of children in the householdin order to ensure a representative sample of the Montreal and Laval population.
