Supreme Court Hearings - Loyola High School, et al. v. Attorney General of Quebec


Case # 35201
Loyola High School, et al. v. Attorney General of Quebec (March 24, 2014)

In 2008, the ERC program became mandatory in Quebec schools, replacing Catholic and Protestant programs of religious and moral instruction. The appellant, Loyola High School, is a religious educational institution. The appellant requested an exemption from the Minister of Education under regulations that allow for equivalent programs. The Minister denied the exemption on the basis that the program was deemed to be faith-based as opposed to cultural in its approach. At issue is whether the appellant has a Charter right, under freedom of religion, to continue to teach its own religious program.
