We have just learned that Québec’s Minister of Education, Jean-Francois Roberge, is tabling a draft homeschooling regulation today in the National Assembly. The draft regulation contains provisions mandating ministerial examinations and the child’s attendance at the annual monitoring meeting, and reinstituting the language of “equivalency” to the cycles of instruction at school.

None of the homeschooling associations were consulted in the drafting of this regulation. We urge you to immediately get in touch with your MNA to voice your opposition to the proposed regulation. We are emailing our members with talking points to raise in your calls and communications to your MNA.

You can find the text of the regulation here:

Please stay in touch for updates about this draft regulation.
