Act to amend the Educational Childcare Act

The Minister of Families, Minister responsible for Seniors and Minister responsible for Anti-Bullying had adopted on October 22, 2014 Bill 2, the Act to amend the Educational Childcare Act.

The legislative amendments followed a judgment handed down by the Court of Appeal in September 2013.

The bill seeks to clarify the notion of related person stipulated in the Educational Childcare Act from the standpoint of certain ties between the individuals targeted, including relatives. The legislative amendments stipulate that a relative who establishes the absence of an economic tie is not related within the meaning of sections 93.1 and 93.2 of the Act. They also cover economic ties similar to those found in a family between persons who are not related.
