In Quebec, there is no legislation governing the supervision and support of allergic children in schools. Quebec also has no standardized training for school personnel, while other provinces and territories have either policies, protocols, guidelines, or legislation aimed at standardizing practices.
These shortcomings are even more apparent when we compare Quebec with the other Canadian provinces and territories.
At present, each Quebec Centre de service scolaire develops its own allergy management guidelines and protocol and schools then integrate them to the best of their ability.
The responsibility for equipping school workers to react promptly in the event of an allergic reaction often falls to parents.
