NO TO LAW 21 CAMPAIGN
Quebec’s Law 21 is discriminatory and divisive and must be fought on all fronts. The “No to Law 21” campaign, in partnership with Quebec Federation of Home and School Associations, invites Quebecers from all faiths, backgrounds and walks of life to proudly wear a button to demonstrate their opposition to this law.
QFHSA will be helping with the ordering and distribution of the buttons. To make a donation to this campaign, click on the donate button and choose the “No to Law 21” Fund.
Notice: QFHSA Annual Membership Fee Increase
At the 2018 Annual General Meeting, April 28, 2018, Treasurer Leah Trineer submitted a Notice of Motion to the delegates representing the member Home and School Associations. This notice advised the delegates that a motion to increase the QFHSA membership fee from $18 to $20 would be brought to the floor for a vote at the 2019 Annual General Meeting. (The annual membership fee had not been increased since 2012, when it went from $16 to $18.) This would give the member associations time to inform their membership.
On May 4, 2019 at the QFHSA Annual General Meeting, Treasurer Leah Trineer called for a Motion to adopt the new membership fee of $20.00 per family per year, effective September 2019. The motion was adopted unanimously.
All Home and School Association Presidents, Treasurers and Membership Chairs were subsequently advised of this increase.
