Consultations on the Ethics and Religious culture program of study
The Ethics and Religious Culture program aims to broaden students’ reflection on community life. By reflecting on the common good and the recognition of others, both integral components of self-knowledge, students acquire the tools they need to carry out their duties as citizens in an ethical and responsible manner. The program is compulsory from Elementary 1 to Secondary V, except for Secondary III.
The Ethics and Religious Culture program will be revised in the coming years. The main objective of this revision is to come up with new and enriching themes to completely or partially replace the content associated with religious culture.
Quebecers were invited to participate in an online public consultation and to share their opinion on some of the themes that could eventually be included in Québec’s curriculum. It was held from January 10 to February 21, 2020.
Their participation will help the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur and its partners identify content to help meet students’ needs, as well as our expectations as a society.
