National School Support Staff Day

The Fédération du personnel de soutien scolaire (FPSS-CSQ), an affiliate of the Centrale des syndicats du Québec (CSQ), is using National School Support Staff Day to highlight and pay tribute to the essential work accomplished by its 27,000 members who ensure that everything functions well in our schools.

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 30 000 members working in school boards throughout Quebec.

Here are the dates of the next National Days:

  • September 26, 2019
