AffiliationQuebec is a registered political party in Quebec, Canada. It is strongly in favour of Canadian unity and opposes Quebec nationalism and sovereignty. Aside from the party's federalist agenda, its stated mission is to "actively pursue the full rights and interests of staunch Canadians living in the Province of Quebec." It also opposes Quebec's language law. Since the resignation of its leader and only publicly-professed member in December 2008, the party has not had any activities.

Its founder and leader, Allen E. Nutik, announced his plan to form the party in May 2007. He described Affiliation Quebec as: "A NEW political party to refocus the agenda! We don't want to be LIED TO, nor undervalued again." He aimed his message primarily at Western Montreal anglophones. Nutik predicted that the party would succeed the defunct Alliance Quebec and aimed to build on voter disappointment with the Quebec Liberal Party and the Action démocratique du Québec, which Nutik said didn't offer any particular consideration to minorities. Although the party's first meeting attracted several dozen people, Nutik was at first unable to collect the 100 signatures of supporters necessary to officially register the group as an official political party with the Chief Electoral Officer of Quebec. The party was eventually registered on January 15, 2008.[1]

On March 2, 2008, AffiliationQuebec held a rally, inviting Howard Galganov to speak. At the rally, an AffiliationQuebec supporter wrestled with a member of a small, sovereigntist fringe group protesting the Galganov speech.[2]

When founding the party, Nutik announced his intention to run as a candidate for the next election of the National Assembly of Quebec. He later said that he wanted the party to run candidates in six or seven of the assembly's 125 ridings. In October 2008, with the resignation of Notre-Dame-de-Grace riding Member of the National Assembly Russell Copeman, Nutik declared his intention to contest the seat. However, on November 10, 2008, Nutik announced that neither he nor his party would be running in the Quebec provincial election of 2008, citing lack of support.[3] After the election was concluded, Nutik stepped down as party leader, stating that he was "with Mario" (a reference to Mario Dumont, who had recently stepped down as leader of the Action démocratique du Québec).[4] The party did not submit an annual report to the Director General of Elections for 2008[5] and appears to no longer be active.
