Elementary School Registration Week

Elementary School Registration Week for the 2022-2023 academic year will take place from Monday, January 31 to Friday, February 4, 2022. If one child from a family is already enrolled in a particular school, a sibling registration period will take place a week earlier.

Registrations for the 2021-2022 school year and for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year

The EMSB is now accepting registrations for the current school year and for the upcoming school year. This is by appointment only. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, walk-ins are no longer accepted. All visitors must use the main entrance of the building when they come to their appointment at the Central Office.

If you live outside of EMSB territory (i.e.: North Shore, South Shore, West Island, Lasalle, Verdun, Lachine, Châteauguay), you must contact the School Board of your territory to apply for a Certificate of English Eligibility. The EMSB cannot apply for your child’s eligibility, unless your child will be attending an EMSB school.

We ask that you kindly complete the questionnaire below to help us guide you to the correct office to apply for a Certificate of English Eligibility for your child.
