Regroupement de comités de parents autonomes du Québec (RCPAQ) is the voice of English and French-speaking parents in the public school system in their region. It represents the parents of some 200,000 students, or 20% of all students in Quebec, spread over more than half of the province's territory.

Its main objectives are to represent, support, accompany and inform parents and member parent committees.

RCPAQ fosters, values, facilitates, promotes and encourages parental involvement in the Quebec school environment.
