Who we are ?

Introduction

The purpose of the Quebec English School Boards Association (QESBA) is to advocate appropriate education for students in both the youth and adult sectors and to enhance the effectiveness of school commissioners and member school boards in the areas of education, finance, administration and labour relations. Because school commissioners and boards are valued clients, the prime focus of the Association is to fulfill the needs of school boards. In this perspective, we communicate, collaborate and cooperate with other educational organizations including the Ministry of Education. The Association must act with integrity, endorse an open style of operating, respect the diversity of school board regions and promote the responsible administration of school boards. All these objectives should be attained by providing adequate information to our member boards.

Our History

Since 1929, the Quebec English School Boards Association (QESBA) and its predecessors have served as a vehicle through which its school board members, elected commissioners, and parents have shared ideas and worked together to achieve the common goal of ensuring quality educational services focused on student success. In fulfilling this key role, the QESBA and its predecessors have contributed to modern public education policy in Québec, including the creation of linguistic school boards, the management of ever increasing demands on teachers and school administrators, understanding and promoting the diversity of school communities, and preparing students to effectively contribute to a predominantly French-speaking Québec society. The QESBA has consistently advocated for the acknowledgement and protection of the education rights of the Official Language Minority in Québec, specifically Section 23 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and most notably the Official Language Minority Community’s right to manage and control its school boards and schools.
