Background

On the last Thursday of September, support staff working in Quebec school boards who are affiliated to the Fédération du personnel de soutien scolaire (FPSS-CSQ) celebrate their National Day.  Many activities are organized throughout Quebec to raise awareness of the thousands of workers who, in collaboration with teachers and professionals, contribute to academic success.

The Federation uses this National Day to encourage people to respect and appreciate the daily work accomplished by its members in every region of Quebec, in addition to promoting the development of solidarity in the workplace.

The FPSS-CSQ introduced this day in 1999 to highlight the vital role school support staff play.  The Fédération du personnel de soutien scolaire (FPSS-CSQ) is the only federation that exclusively represents school support staff in Quebec schools and centers.  It has close to 36,500 members working in school boards throughout Quebec.

Here are the dates of the next National Days:

  • September 28, 2023
  • September 26, 2024
  • September 25, 2025

World Education Support Personnel Day

In addition to our National School Support Staff Day, which takes place on the last Thursday in September, we also have World Education Support Personnel Day which was initiated by Education International.  Educational International, however, includes school support staff, higher education support staff and professionals, because in many countries education staff is divided into two groups: teaching and non-teaching staff.  In Quebec, we have separate definitions for support staff and professional staff.

So, we will celebrate our own National School Support Staff Day on September 28, 2023, and World Education Support Personnel Day on May 16, 2023.
