SAAQ: waiting times available online tomorrow
The SAAQ website.
While service is slowing down and endless lines line up outside Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) service points, waiting times for an appointment at each establishment of the SAAQ will be posted online starting tomorrow, March 14.
This is what Geneviève Guilbault, Minister of Transport and Sustainable Mobility, announced at a press briefing on Monday afternoon.
In addition, truckers will in turn benefit from a period of 90 days – like drivers and their license – to renew the registration that allows them to drive their vehicle outside Quebec.
Truck drivers will have until June 12 to regularize their situation. The measure is made possible thanks to a ministerial decree. Employers should have access to accurate information tomorrow.
Seven service centers in SAAQ establishments have been deployed since today by the provincial government to help citizens create an authentication service account governmental (SAG) and also to accompany them for certain services of the SAAQClic site.
Among these seven centres, one was set up at the SAAQ Langelier, located in the borough of Saint-Léonard, in Montreal. Ms. Guilbault was at this point of service to announce the new measures to reduce waiting.
It’t’t be the deployment of the SAAQClic platform and the digitization of SAAQ services that complicated the situation to get an appointment. The government’s ultimate goal is that many Quebecers have created an account at SAG, because it’s this authentication system that will be used by all government services, eventually.
