First Steps

  • Verify that the child is eligible to English education in Québec;
  • Use our School Locator to determine the child’s boundary school. To apply for a transfer to another WQ school, see 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 license of the parent/guardian responsible for the child or Lease/House Deed and a utility bill;
  • In the meantime, parents can contact the Admissions team or their boundary school for any and all other questions.

Registration of International Students

For information on registration of an international student to an Elementary or Secondary school, contact the School Organization Department directly.

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.
