Tax Eligibility Information 


Register as a Catholic School Supporter

By ensuring you are a registered Catholic school supporter you

  • are protecting and preserving Catholic education in Ontario
  • you are provided the opportunity to elect your school board trustees
  • are ensuring that your municipalities assessment base is up-to-date, which is a public record of support for Catholic schools

Separate school support is an important step when registering at the Halton Catholic District School Board. At both the elementary and secondary school levels, Roman Catholic parents, ratepayers and members of the Eastern Rite are encouraged to declare their support for Catholic schools. This declaration ensures that your municipality's assessment base is up-to-date, and serves as a public record of support for Catholic schools; confirming that the publicly funded Catholic school system is strongly wanted and needed in Ontario.

If you are unsure if you are a Catholic School Supporter, you can check your property tax bill, talk to your landlord or call MPAC at 1-866-296-6722. 

If you have recently moved, ensure that your child’s school is aware so that the appropriate changes are made and school support can be directed accordingly.
