Before its induction into the Musée de la civilisation, the Quorum Project was a web application from CLESSN at Université Laval which allowed Quebecers to continuously take the pulse of their society on the issues of the day.

Let’s reach Quorum!

Quorum Project is a multidisciplinary Web application, the result of work between numerous research groups from Laval University and other research institutions in Quebec, as well as partners from civil society and the new technologies sector. The platform allows Quebecers to take the pulse of their society in real time, to understand the mood and perceptions of public decision-makers, the media and general public opinion in relation to the issues of the day .

As a first file, Projet Quorum offers to answer a short questionnaire in order to obtain a personalized profile regarding the management of the COVID-19 crisis. In addition to directly serving public decision-makers and journalists as a democratic tool, the Quorum Project profile becomes an opportunity to compare yourself to those who make decisions that affect everyday life.

Let’s reach Quorum! By creating an account from the drop-down menu, it becomes possible to save your profile and badge, and see them evolve when other questions on issues of public interest are added. There are already more than 16,000 different macaron possibilities! Thanks to your account, your macaron will accumulate layers and personalize itself with each new file. It’s an effective and fun way to make your voice heard.

Quorum Project is an initiative led by the Chair of Leadership in Teaching Digital Social Sciences (CLESSN) at Laval University. The holder of the CLESSN is Professor Yannick Dufresne. CLESSN has devoted considerable efforts during 2020 to obtain the strictest ethical authorizations, as expected of an application that collects individual data. It can thus guarantee its users the highest standards in terms of respect for private life.


Thanks to our many partners who have enabled and continue to enable the democratic goals behind Quorum Project.
