Parents, if you have children currently in school, please take a moment to read through the material on this page. There are some important action items that you can take now to protect your child while on school property.
The first step we recommend all parents to take is to submit the amendment to the emergency medical consent form that would have been completed at the start of the school year. While you do want the school to have your explicit permission to exercise emergency medical procedures, such as an injury, you want to also explicitly state that NO COVID treatments are authorized, under any conditions. You also want to state that you do NOT authorize your child from being removed from the school and that you do NOT authorize anyone taking guardianship over your child under any circumstances.
You can find the Amendment to the Emergency Medical Consent Form HERE.
PARENTS PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION ON BILL 197. This bill was passed last year and it gives the school authority to take over guardian ship of your child and move them from "one prescribed school to another".

Masking in the school has become a widespread problem as the school boards have taken it upon themselves to create a mandate and/or policy to force your child to wear a mask while in the classroom.
We have learned that as of the fall of 2020 the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario have sent out a memo to ALL physicians stating if they are to issue a mask exemption they will be disciplined by the college.
Both of these are unacceptable and are in direct violation of your child’s rights and your rights as the guardian of your child.
We have a few solutions for you, the first being the progressive notice of liability and the other is the mask consent form. And finally, the last one BEING YOU! YOUR STRENGTH AND VOICE AS A PARENT. YOU MUST STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND DEMAND THE SCHOOLS KEEP THEIR HANDS OFF YOUR CHILD. This is a blatant overreach of power, and the first step is taking a stand and saying NO to any demands of your child you do not agree to. The first step would be to have a conversation with the school principal to resolve the matter, and to escalate as far as you need to within the board if it cannot be resolved at that level.
We have an incredible parent, Scott from Ottawa, who asserted his rights, served the Trustee in his area an NOL and was successful in removing the arbitrary mask mandate implemented by the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board! We are so proud of Scott! Learn about Scott and his action on his Facebook page HERE.
If you have exhausted all options and the school board is STILL insisting that your child, be forced into the mask, we have a mask consent form you can send into the school. This document states you agree to your child wearing a mask with the condition they will follow the safety protocols for your child; they will do a mask fit test, check the air quality of the room, test the oxygen levels while wearing the mask, etc. These are safety standards that are legislated by regulatory bodies of Canada and they must be accommodated.
You can find the mask consent form HERE.
We have a parent notice of liability package specifically for parents. The package includes a pre-filled NOL for parents to modify as needed, the accompanying affidavit to be notarized/commissioned, an invoice template and the guide to completing the NOL documents.
