Earlier this afternoon, Premier François Legault announced that all schools and centres in the Outaouais region will remain closed through to the end of the day on Friday, May 7. As a result of this directive, all Outaouais schools and centres will maintain distance learning, and are scheduled to reopen to students on Monday, May 10th.

Please take note that these measures do not apply to WQSB schools and centres located in region 08, as they will maintain in-school learning; namely:

  • G. Théberge School
  • Golden Valley School
  • Noranda School
  • Anishnabe Adult Education Centre
  • Western Québec Continuing Education Centre in Val d’Or
