I have like everyone else the 911 fee, which is Quebec Municipal Tax : 0.40$.
My question, what happens if I manage my plan and remove it ? Cause, apparently I can. Is it legal to do it ? Will it be still possible to use the 911 service? Cause, you know, I call them daily to know the deals at Timmy's

You can call 911 even without a SIM card, that would never be blocked.

I'm not sure though what would happen if you removed the $0.40 from your account, I'd say try it but don't come crying to me if your service got cut off, hahaha! :D

Hi José, as it's a mandatory tax from the Quebec government, it can not be removed from your account. Self Serve shouldn't even give you the option to do it actually, but, if removed, the $0.40 Quebec Municipal Tax would be automatically added back to your account. Thank you!

If you see a good answer, give it a star.

thanks all !

just to let you know, Yannick, it gives me the option.
perhaps, the website does not verify my ip adress to confirm that I'm in Quebec. Or maybe it's because I'm still signed in Alberta Region even if I moved to Quebec.

Why is it called "Quebec Municipal Tax"? Is the e911 service managed from the city of Quebec QC?

Because 911is a municipal responsibility in Québec, so that's why they call it that.
