Update - February 2017
Demographics and Enrolment Ad Hoc Committee
The committee looked at what strategy to use to get wider access to English education. After living through Major School Change, being silent is not an option, we need to do something. Article 26(3) of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights clearly states: Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children. However, it is unlikely that any Quebec Government is going to allow parents free choice to select which linguistic school their children could go to. We decided to lobby the government to allow children 12 years and older who are coming to Quebec, who have done most of their education in English to attend English schools. Subsequently a resolution was passed at the Parent Committee meeting to ask our English Parent Committee Association (EPCA) delegates to get EPCA to lobby the government on the above. We are also in the process of submitting a resolution to the Quebec Federation of Home and School Associations (QFHSA) to do the same.
