In Case of a Dispute

AQED encourages a positive and constructive attitude in your relations with the Direction de l’enseignement à la maison (DEM) and with your school board or school service center. It is beneficial for both parties if this relationship is one of exchange and respect, with the common goal of our children’s well-being.

However, there may be times when you find yourselves in a situation of conflict and can’t find common ground.

Count on an Active Community Presence

Teaching at home doesn’t mean being isolated. You’ll never be left on your own with AQED. One of our missions is to create networks to bring together parent-educators in Quebec. Sharing experiences in the community is enriching for everyone.

Facebook Groups

We suggest you join AQED’s English and French Facebook groups to talk to other families facing challenges similar to your own. You can also join local support groups for homeschooling families.

Regional Support

Each region of Quebec has an AQED representative. They are volunteers whose mission is to help homeschoolers in their area. Regional representatives are familiar with the specific issues in their sector. They can therefore advise you accordingly and give you access to AQED educational materials.
