Frequently Asked Questions
about home based learning in Quebec

Is homeschooling legal in Quebec?

Yes. Section 15(4) of the Quebec Education Act allows children to be exempt from compulsory attendance at school if their home schooling and educational experience are "equivalent to what is provided at school" according to an evaluation by or at the request of the school board.

Do I need to be a certified teacher to educate my child at home in Quebec?

No. There is no such requirement in the Education Act.
