QC changes English eligibility certificates requirements, delays some parts of Bill 96


The Government of Quebec has changed the English eligibility certificate requirements for those applying to English cégeps. Cégeps will now have access to a database that lists the names and codes of students who have English eligibility. The change reportedly was made in response to feedback from English cégeps, which said that it would not be possible for them to change their staffing and curriculum to accommodate the law. Other parts of Bill 96 will be delayed or amended, such as the requirement for students to complete the preparatory courses for the French exit exam and the admission priority for anglophone students.
