There was a minor change in the laws regarding international contests open to the province of Quebec.
Over the summer, the Quebec legislature quietly passed changes removing the application of these requirements to international contests. Now, contests/sweepstakes that are open to Quebec entrants are not subject to any of the Régie requirements if they are also open to entrants from outside of Canada. This means that no Régie registration or fees are required for international contests. The Régie requirements will, unfortunately, continue to apply to contests that are open in Quebec only, or that are open to Canadians but not internationally.
