Who can celebrate a civil union in Quebec?

In Quebec, the persons authorized to celebrate a civil union are the same as those competent to celebrate a marriage: the clerks and assistants clerks of the Superior Court of Québec appointed by the Minister of Justice, the notaries and any other person appointed by the Minister of Justice. The last category includes the mayors, members of municipal councils or borough councils and municipal officials. The presence of two witnesses is, however, required for these celebrations.

Religious ministers (priests, pastors, rabbis) can celebrate a civil union if they have no impediment or restriction relevant of the religious society to which they belong.
