Policies - ESJQ - École de sténographie judiciaire du Québec



Policies and Regulations



When you are accepted to the program, the ESJQ will offer you an “Educational Service Contract” which you must sign and return to the school. This contract defines the services to which you will be entitled, the cost of these services, and the terms of payment. This contract is a formal commitment that the School makes to you, and that you make to the School.


The student may, at any moment and at their own discretion, terminate the contract by giving notice to this effect by registered mail. The contract is fully terminated upon the school’s reception of this notice.

If the student wishes to dissolve the contract BEFORE the start of the training program, a fee of $500 will be charged. In the case that the student has already paid registration or tuition fees, the amount will be deducted from their reimbursement.

If the student terminates the contract AFTER the start of the training program, they are responsible for paying the price of the educational services by hour of instruction received, to which will be added a $500 penalty provided for by ministerial regulation.


Payment of all fees may be made to the order of l’École de sténographie judiciaire du Québec and mailed to the following address :

École de sténographie judiciaire du Québec

465, rue Saint-Jean, bureau 505

Montréal, (Québec)  H2Y 2R6

Note that students whose cheques are refused by our bank will be responsible for paying an administrative fee of $20.
