From My Genealogy Life blog: Yesterday a post by Gail Dever alerted me about a webinar hosted by Family Search covering Quebec Notary records. 

I arrived to the webinar in time and enjoyed watching the class and learned ow to find Notary records online.I have spent quite a but of time working with the index to Quebec Notary records created by Ancestry. 

At Ancestry some of the records have been added but for the most part I have found it is mainly an index. If you keep reading you will find out how to find them online.LINK
