Update on Bill 21

On June 16, 2019, the provincial government in Quebec passed into law Bill 21, An Act respecting the laicity of the State (Loi sur la laïcité de l’État). As it currently stands, Bill 21 prohibits principals, vice-principals and teachers of educational institutions under the jurisdiction of a school board established under the Education Act from wearing religious symbols in the exercise of their functions. Presently, it is unclear as to how the law may apply to student teaching placements, particularly in the public-school sector. You can read the official Faculty of Education Reaction to Bill 21 hereAs always, the team in the Internships and Student Affairs Office is here to support you. If you have any questions or concerns about your student teaching placements, please contact the Internships and Student Affairs Office or your Placement Coordinator.


In the monthly "Be the Change" series, the ISA team addresses educational issues to contribute to a rich discussion and share ideas across the many facets of our educational community.

McGill University is located on land that has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes, and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we meet. Learn more.
