Register a Student

The Western Québec School Board is proud to provide English language instruction as well as French Immersion programs.

First steps

  • Verify that the child is eligible to English education in Québec;
  • Use our School Locator tool to determine the child’s boundary school. To apply for a transfer to another WQ school, jump to Cross-Boundary Requests;
  • Obtain a copy of all necessary documents:
    • Child’s original long-form birth certificate bearing parents’ names;
    • Canadian Citizenship of the parent who will render the child eligible;
    • Québec driver’s licence of the parent/guardian responsible for the child or Lease/House Deed and a utility bill;
  • Come back on this webpage later, as it will be updated with correct registration dates and times for every school.
  • In the meantime, parents can contact WQ Admissions or your boundary school for any and all other questions.

Good to know

  • To register for kindergarten (K5) for school year 2020-2021, a child must be 5 years of age by September 30, 2020.
  • To register for Pre-Kindergarten (K4) for the same school year, a child must be 4 years of age by September 30, 2020. In the list below, schools which offer a K4 program are identified.

International Students

For information on registration of international students to an Elementary or Secondary school, contact the Admissions Department directly.

Registration Dates

Parents who have all required documents and are ready to register their child for school can do so during registration time slots. Registrations usually take place directly at the boundary school somewhere in the second half of January of the year the child is eligible to attend K4 or K5. For the child to begin for school year 2020-2021 for example, registrations will begin on 29 January 2020, by appointment only. All information will be available in time on this very page.

Cross-Boundary Requests

Parents are asked to register their child in their boundary school. Cross-Boundary Requests allow parents to request to send their child to another school located outside of the boundaries of a given school (in other words, the territory served by a school). This transfer request is made to the Department of School Organization, which will review it individually before submitting a recommendation to the General Directorate.
