Testing for drugs and other prohibited substances

The ENPQ has a “Zero Tolerance” Policy Concerning the Use of and the Offences Related to Drugs and Other Prohibited Substances.

Consequently, you will be tested for drugs and other prohibited substance at the time of your medical examination. However, you will not be tested for cannabis.

Furthermore, the ENPQ could require that you be specifically tested for drugs and other prohibited substances if it has reasonable grounds to believe that the “Zero Tolerance” policy is not respected during training.

If the case arises, a confirmation test shall be administered for each drug detected and the related fees are your responsibility. Please refer to the “Zero Tolerance” Policy Concerning the Use of and the Offences Related to Drugs and Other Prohibited Substances.

If you fail this test, your program will be automatically interrupted.

Fortuitous event

If you are unable to show up for your medical examination or your physical fitness evaluation (for which you will be asked to attend), due to fortuitous events, you can present a written request for a deferral to the Registrar’s office, who, after analyzing your request, could give you the authorization to attend another evaluation session on a new date. This measure is exceptional and does not apply to travel and other work-related constraints.

If your request for a deferral is denied and you decide not to show up to either one of these evaluations,, your admission will no longer be valid for the current school year. You will have to submit a new application for admission for the next school year.

Examples of fortuitous events: death of a next of kin, illness, court testimony.
