QOA - The online campus for students with medical exemptions enrolled in English school boards across Quebec

Welcome to the Quebec Online Alliance (QOA)​

The online campus for students with medical exemptions from the English school boards across Quebec

This service is a first of its kind initiative for our community and represents an opportunity for students with medical exemptions to continue their studies during the course of the 2021-22 school year.
Students from seven different school boards will be participating. Rest assured, each student remains a part of his/her respective school board.

Classes will be given online using the Microsoft 365 platform and we will be providing all the support everyone needs to make this a success. Teachers are ready to go and we hope our students will enjoy the experience. For some, it may be just a continuation from last year, while for others it will be completely new. The entire team here at QOA is committed to delivering a learning experience that will allow students to continue in their educational progression.

We will be updating parents in an ongoing fashion and welcome any and all questions.

We wish to thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we start up. This project started up in the first week of September and there are still details to be attended to.
