Speech synthesis, based on artificial intelligence, makes it possible to generate a spoken text from a written text.

La Cour d' appeal refused on Thursday the request for a stay made by the government of Quebec and confirmed that the children of asylum seekers will be able to access early childhood centers (CPE) and subsidized daycares while waiting for the Supreme Court to rule on the folder.

Quebec indicated last month that it was contesting the decision rendered on February 7 by the Court of Appeal which deemed “discriminatory” the fact of preventing the children of asylum seekers with a work permit to attend subsidized childcare services.

The Legault government had at the same time announced its intention to ask the highest court in the country to decide the question.

In its decision of February 7, the Court of Appeal considered that Quebec's decision contravened section 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and freedoms because it prevented women from accessing the labor market.

A directive formulated in April 2018 by the liberal government of Philippe Couillard, according to which reduced-contribution daycare places should not be accessible to asylum seekers, is at the origin of this entire debate.LoadingHead-on collision in Chapais: three dead and two seriously injured

Québec justifies its position based on article 3 of the Regulation respecting the reduced contribution of the Educational Childcare Act, according to which CPE and subsidized daycare centers are reserved for people who are in Quebec mainly to work.
