The Court of Appeal confirms the right of asylum seekers to send their children to early childhood centers (CPE) and subsidized daycares in the province.

This decision, published Wednesday, confirms the judgment rendered by the Superior Court in May 2022, which restored asylum seekers' access to these childcare services.

The court thus rejects the government of Quebec, which had appealed the case a few months later.

The debate surrounding asylum seekers' access to CPEs and subsidized daycares in the province stems from a directive issued by the liberal government of Philippe Couillard in April 2018 according to which people from this category temporary immigration detainees were not eligible for such services.

The case pitted the State against Bijou Cibuabua Kanyinda, a mother supported by the Commission on Human Rights and Youth Rights.

Quebec has around 160,000 applicants #x27;asylum at present.

Parents with access to CPEs and subsidized daycares in the province only pay 9.10 $ per day per child. Prices for unsubsidized daycares are much higher, but parents of children who attend them can benefit from significant tax credits from the governments of Quebec and Canada.

More details will follow.
