Contact the complaints office

• Is your complaint related to having your electricity service interrupted by Hydro-Québec for non-payment or to receiving a notice of service interruption?

If your electricity service has been interrupted or if you have received a notice of service interruption and you are not satisfied with the solution proposed by our customer services, you can file a complaint.

Describe your situation and explain why you don’t agree with the suggested solution. Remember to include your full contact information: your name, customer number as indicated on your electricity bill, address and phone number.

A complaints office representative will contact you within two business days to inform you of the results of the analysis.

If you disagree with the decision of Hydro-Québec’s complaints office or if they have not given you their written decision by the end of the 48-hour time limit, you can ask the Régie de l’énergie to review your case.
