2018 School Board Trustees

You are here

A school board is a body that operates the province's publicly funded schools. The school board is governed by it's publicly elected board members (trustees). Trustees can be elected to one of four different kinds of school boards: 

  • English-language public school board: This is the default – unless you are qualified to vote for a separate or French board, you will vote for the English public school board in your area.
     
  • English language separate school board: You must be Roman Catholic, and you must be a separate school board supporter or the spouse of a separate school board supporter. If your spouse is a Roman Catholic and you are not, you are not eligible.
     
  • French language public school board: You must be a French language rights holder and you must be a supporter (or the spouse of a supporter) of the French language public school board.
     
  • French language separate school board: You must be a Roman Catholic and a French language rights holder, and you must be a supporter (or the spouse of a supporter) of the French separate school board. If your spouse is a Roman Catholic and you are not, you are not eligible.

“Supporter” refers to which school board the school portion of your property taxes goes to. The default is the public school system. In order to be a separate school supporter you must direct your taxes to the separate school system. Contact the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (1-866-296-6722) for more information.
