The lowest unit of local government in Quebec is the local municipality, (Municipalité locale) to distinguish it from the higher-level regional county municipality or RCM, which is also a municipal government at the supralocal level.

Eight municipalities are further subdivided into boroughs.

There are also eleven agglomerations grouping a number of municipalities and exercising some of the powers which, elsewhere in Quebec, would be exercised by a municipality.

With the exception of some Aboriginal communities, municipalities are governed by the Towns and Cities Act and the Municipal Code of Québec.
