Community Use of Schools

**UPDATE - PLEASE NOTE**


Unfortunately, the Community Use of Schools program continues to be on hold at this time.  We will be working out the details over the coming weeks, but don't expect to have the Community Use program available until mid to late October, at the very earliest.

Please feel free to create a permit for your group using the Community Use of Schools system, as in prior years.  We will begin the approval process once we have determined our start date and safety procedures.

We will continue to post updates on the website as they become available, so please check back on a regular basis.  Of course, if you have any questions that have not been addressed, please don't hesitate to contact us at communityuseofschools@dsb1.ca!

Our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as we develop a plan to keep everyone safe! 



Community Use of Schools is an initiative of the Ontario Ministry of Education that supports access to school space, outside of school hours, for community members to come together, volunteer, build skills, access community programs, become physically active and build strong and healthy communities.

Our schools are welcoming and inclusive environments that offer parent groups and community organizations fair and equitable access to the use of school space at affordable rates, to help support and promote healthy, active lifestyles for community youth.
