The certificate of eligibility for English school in Quebec

  • They have already had most of the elementary or secondary education in English in Canada
  • They have a brother or sister who had English schooling for most of his or her elementary education
  • Their father or mother attended any English school in Canada for most of their elementary studies
  • Their father or mother received a certificate of eligibility to acquire English language schooling in Quebec since August 26, 1977.

The certificate of eligibility is permanent and has no limitations. For children who receive the certificate of eligibility for English language instruction in Quebec, their siblings are also eligible.

Special authorization for English only schooling

There are two broad categories for children who may receive instruction in English.

  • Children with learning disabilities as defined by Quebec's Charter of the French language, under section 81.
  • Children admitted to receive instruction based on a critical family or humanitarian reason, as determined by Quebec's Ministry of Education, Recreation and Sports.

Temporary authorization

There are several cases where temporary authorization for English language instruction can be gained. These instances include:

  • Dependent children of persons living in Quebec temporarily to study or work.
  • Dependent children of those who are not citizens of Canada but are posted in Quebec temporarily as representatives or officers of another country or international body.
  • Dependent children of any members of the Canadian Armed Forces posted temporarily in the province of Quebec.

Temporary authorizations for English instruction are often annual and expire on June 30 of any school year in which the child's family's stay in Quebec ends. You can learn more about temporary authorization conditions by clicking here.
