The Federation of Quebec Parents 'Committees (FCPQ) and the Association of Anglophone Parents' Committees (ACPA) announce the launch of the site PARENTS.QUEBEC

The site PARENTS.QUEBEC is intended to complement the Open School, a government platform launched last spring, and will help parents to effectively support their children according to their specific needs. Beyond the educational components, this new tool will make it possible to find resources, depending on the region, the needs and the age of the children.

“The daily life of families has been turned upside down since last March and the situation shows the importance of having a tool that answers parents' questions and helps them find resources according to their needs,” explains Kévin Roy, president of the FCPQ. .

For several years, the FCPQ and the APCA have wanted to boost support for parents and bring together the resources aimed at them. Together, they took the initiative to make this request a reality and, with the support of the Government of Quebec, created the portal PARENTS.QUEBEC.

For the ACPA, the active participation of parents is an essential element in the educational success of children. "This tool will fill a void that was regularly pointed out to us by parents who do not know where to turn when they want to support their children," says Katherine Korakakis, president of the APCA.

“Since the start of the pandemic, parents have demonstrated incredible strength and resilience as they juggle school and work from home. Their desire for help was heard. This tool will become a reference for answering their questions, ”added the Minister of Education, Jean-François Roberge.

Note that a second phase of the project is in development and that it will be announced in the coming months.
