Western Québec School Board (WQSB, French: Commission scolaire Western Québec) is an English-language school district based in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada in Greater Ottawa.[1] It was formerly a Protestant school district. The chairperson is James Shea, and the director general is Mike Dubeau.

History

The WQSB was created by a series of amalgamations of smaller school boards. In 1998, when Québec's religious school boards were replaced by linguistic boards, seven English-language schools formerly designated as Roman Catholic were transferred to the WQSB. School boards in Québec had been organized along confessional lines, Catholic and Protestant, since before Canadian Confederation.
