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 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.
