BC Anaphylactic and Child Safety Framework and the Anaphylaxis Protection Order


In May 2007, the Ministry of Education established a Provincial Anaphylaxis Advisory Committee comprised of health, education, parent and anaphylaxis organizations to provide assistance in the development of a provincial Anaphylactic and Child Safety Framework to outline provincial expectations with respect to managing anaphylaxis in the school setting.  The purpose of the Framework is to provide boards of education with a broad overview of the key elements required in district policy, procedures and guidelines at the board level to ensure appropriate and consistent management of anaphylaxis in the school setting and throughout the education system.

On September 13, 2007, the Ministry of Education announced the signing of the Anaphylaxis Protection Order. This ministerial order, which carries the force of law, requires all BC school districts to develop and implement anaphylaxis policies that meet the rigorous provincial standards outlined in the British Columbia Anaphylactic and Child Safety Framework (September 2007).
