To ensure that clear guidelines regarding the school fees billed to parents of preschoolers and elementary and secondary students are in place, Quebecers were invited to participate in an online consultation to express their opinions and make suggestions. It was held from January 7 to 25, 2019.

The aim of this consultation was to arrive at a consensus on school fees so that all Québec students can continue to have access to an active and dynamic public school system. It gave respondents the opportunity to share their views on the principles that should guide future discussions on the fees associated with attending public school, particularly those that relate to:

  • educational services, including school activities and field trips
  • school supplies
  • other subjects, including school daycare services and school transportation
