Enriched activities (QUEBEC CITIZENS ONLY)
Petition Background (Preamble):
The purpose of this petition is to provide Quebec citizens with the opportunity to :
Ask the Quebec government to respect the right of daycares to offer, and parents to request/purchase, optional enriched extra-curricular programs, services and activities.
Whereas since September 1, 2006, parents wishing to offer enriched extra-curricular programs, services and activities («activities») to their child are no longer allowed to make a voluntary contribution due to the incorrect position taken by the government re. the interpretation of the Loi ;
Whereas parents have the fundamental right under the Loi to request/purchase such «activities» for their child and are prepared to pay a supplementary contribution to the basic $7, so long as the «activities» are optional and not imposed upon them ;
Whereas the removal of these «activities» is detrimental to the children and impacts negatively on the balance between work and family life by forcing families to seek such «activities» on evenings and week-ends instead of using such time for valuable family interaction ;
Therefore the undersigned ask the National Assembly to ask the Ministre de la Famille to respect the legal right of childcare services to offer, and parents to request/purchase, optional enriched extra-curricular programs, services and activities.
