Ministère De L’Éducation: COVID-19: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS; 27 April 2021

Hello Summer — Oh how we’ve missed thee!!

It’s been a long, hard year... but together, we accomplished some amazing feats. From the beginning of the pandemic, EPCA quickly realized our number one initiative would be to build our community, connect families, and attempt to reduce parent anxiety.

Just look at what EPCA - with the support of parents across the province - was able to accomplish this year:
• Built a stronger partnership with our sister parent organizations;
• Provided training to parents across the province on a variety of topics;
• Provided training to Parents' Committees across our network;
• Launched Parents.Quebec, a portal for all parents across Quebec to find the resources they need in their communities;
• Partnered with Ecole Branchee to produce guides for parents with tips on how to survive the pandemic and best use technology;
• Lobbied the government on a range of topics that touch our community and made sure our voices were heard; and
• Media contributions - see my latest interview on the back-to-school plan here.

Summer is starting, but that doesn’t mean our forward momentum will come to an end. We will be planning for next year and looking forward to bring parents more resources, training, and tools to help them with their most important job; being an engaged parent! Do not forget that EPCA resources are for everyone. We hope that engagement and enthusiasm grow.

This has truly been a year we won’t soon forget. Rest, recover, and revel in the fact that we all did something extraordinary this year. I look forward to seeing you all in the fall.

Happy Summer!!!

WHAT WE DO
OUR STRATEGY

The English Parents' Committee Association, the EPCA, is a coalition of parents' committees of Quebec's English school boards; it represents nearly 100,000 students in the young anglophone sector. EPCA is a non-profit association funded by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEES).
The EPCA advocates for public education in English in Quebec and lobbies for questions that concern members of our parent committee.
