Who are the Quebec Board of Black Educators?
The Quebec Board of Black Educators (QBBE) is an organization founded in 1968 by a group of Educators from the Caribbean to address the cultural differences and challenges the immigrant children brought to the schools. The goal has been and still is to provide quality educational support and opportunities for English speaking black children and their families and lobbying with the School Boards and Government to eliminate the inequalities in education.
How is the QBBE funded?
QBBE is entirely enabled by monetary and in-kind donations of goods and services from Government grants, corporate supporters, foundations and individual donors, to name a few. Thanks to their championing, the QBBE is able to offer its programs and service free of charge to the community.
Where can I learn more about the QBBE?
Our website is the most comprehensive source of information about QBBE. We invite you to explore the abundant information about our services, our programs, audited financial statements, and our most recent annual reports.
How do I stay updated on the work the QBBE is doing?
A lot happens at the QBBE, so to ensure you are getting all the latest results numbers, program updates, and information, you should sign up for our mailing list to be included in news and updates about the organization. We also post regularly on our Social Media platforms (qbbe_mtl), so no matter where you live, you can always stay in touch.
Why should I give to the QBBE?
We do not see educational investment as an either/or proposition. Every community could benefit from improvements in education, more so in the communities of colour where there are inequities.

We believe that every child deserves a quality education, no matter their ethnicity, or the situation they were born into.
