The Party Cubacois CAQ seeks a plan by the government to “ensure the quality of education in higher education institutions”, as well as “improvement in mental health care for students”.

It has been two months since the government announced new sums to improve mental health care, but so far nothing has materialized. We do not even know when or how, ”said Sylvain Roy, a PQ spokeswoman for higher education, citing figures from the Quebec College Student Federation.
The establishment of hybrid classes was one of the proposals made by the Quebec student unions.
Last fall, the Minister of Higher Education, Daniel McCann, indicated that she was working to take some steps to help students alleviate the mental health problems associated with distance studies. And solitude.
