EPCA and FCPQ team up for Symposium!

Montreal, March 28, 2022 – English Parents’ Committee Association (EPAC) is pleased to announce its ongoing collaboration with The Federation of Parents’ Committees of Quebec (FCPQ) to launch the official programming of its Symposium, which will take place on May 28, 2022 in hybrid mode at the Hôtel Le Victorin in Victoriaville and on line, under the theme “The Parents’ Role in Education.”

“Over the past two years our two organizations have worked closely on several projects and this symposium is the perfect opportunity to come together once again and discuss the different aspects of parental involvement in the school environment as well as other topics that are important for our community” says Katherine Korakakis, president of EPCA.

The Symposium will kick-off with Patricia Paquin and Louis-François Marcotte, Quebec personalities adored by the public who will share their experience of involvement in the education of their children.

After the opening conference, a youth panel will discuss their expectations of their parents in terms of their success and personal development. During the day, participants will be able to take part in reflection workshops focusing on the role of parents in education. Workshops offered in English will include:

  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in our Schools
  • Exerting influence: how parents can play an active role in school governance

Many partners will also be on hand at the Exhibitors’ Fair to present their services and products.

The complete program is now available on the FCPQ website. To register for the Symposium, click here. Note that all the English content will be virtual. This is an event not to be missed!
