Our story began in 1968.
When Canada opened its doors to immigration in the late ’60s, a large influx of immigrants from the Caribbean entered the Quebec school system which was ill-equipped to address the cultural differences and challenges the immigrant children brought to the schools. The lack of blacks pursuing higher learning was alarming. There was a deep cultural malaise endemic in the school system that prevented Black students from completing high school.
In response to the growing educational and societal needs of the English speaking Black communities, a group of Black educators, mostly from the Caribbean, founded the Quebec Board of Black Educators (QBBE).
Who we serve
