Registrations for the current 2022-2023 school year and the upcoming 2023-2024 school year
The EMSB is presently accepting registrations for the current school year as well as the upcoming school year. All registrations are by appointment only. Walk-ins are not accepted. Visitors must use the main entrance of the building when they come to their appointment at the Central Office.
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.
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.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Board may grant early entry (derogation) to a child who has not reached the age of admission. This requires an evaluation of the child by a psychologist. Learn more about this process.Early Entry (Derogation)
