History Of The EMSB

With a youth and adult sector population of more than 39,000 students, the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) is the largest English public school board in Quebec. Established on July 1, 1998, when the province created new boards along linguistic lines, our network consists of some 85 schools and centres. There are 40 elementary schools, 17 secondary schools, 11 outreach schools, 10 social affairs institutions and 11 adult and vocational centres.

What Are The Eligibility Requirements For Students To Register At The EMSB?

New registrations for the next school year should be completed at your neighborhood school where your child will be attending. An application for the Certificate of Eligibility will also be filled out at this location.

  • For Pre Kindergarten students, the child must be four (4) years of age before Sept. 30th.
  • Pre Kindergarten is offered in certain schools recognized by the MEQ as inner city.
  • For Kindergarten students, the child must be five (5) years of age before Sept. 30th. Otherwise, you can apply for derogation. Please contact your elementary school or Student Services Department for details.
  • For Grade 1 students, the child must be six (6) years of age before Sept. 30th. Otherwise, you can apply for derogation. Please contact your elementary school or Student Services Department for details

If you cannot find the document, please mention to the school that the eligibility has been granted. Also, provide the child's Long Version Birth Certificate, showing the parents' names. Bring the Certificate of Eligibility and birth certificate showing the parents' names directly to the school your child will be attending.

If one parent attended an English Elementary School in Quebec before August 1977, the parents must clearly indicate the elementary schools attended, as well as provide the child's Long Version Birth Certificate showing the parents' names.

If one parent attended an English Elementary School in Canada, they should provide a letter (on official school letter head) of proof of majority of primary education in English (100%) or percentage of English and percentage of French if applicable. (Parents must have a minimum of four years, except in Ontario, which must have five years).

If the child is attending or has attended Elementary or Secondary schools in English in Canada, parents should provide a letter (on official school letter head) of majority of primary or secondary education in English or percentage in English and percentage in French, if applicable.

If the child has a sibling who is attending or has attended the majority of English elementary or secondary school in Canada, parents should provide a letter (on official school letter head) of majority of primary or secondary education in English or percentage in English and percentage in French, if applicable.

If the student or a sibling attended an English private school in Quebec, this article no longer applies, since the modifications that were made to the French Language Charter on October 1, 2002 (Bill 104).
