Quebec autonomism is a political belief that Quebec should seek to gain more autonomy as a province, while remaining a part of the Canadian federation. Drawing inspiration from René Lévesque's "beau risque", and Robert Bourassa's work on the Meech Lake Accord and Charlottetown Accord, its goals are, in short:
- Setting out the procedures for constitutional change
- A sharing of jurisdictions between the federal government and Quebec
- Framework for federal spending powers
- Institutional reform
- Reform of intergovernmental policies
In a speech to delegates of the ADQ, party leader Mario Dumont, on May 8, 2006, Dumont said that Quebec should seek to re-open negotiations with the federal government over Quebec's status in Confederation, and should eventually ratify the Constitution of Canada.
