2018-2019 Budget Consultation Process 


The Halton Catholic District School Board maintains a strong financial position and we take great pride in being fiscally responsible and allocating resources efficiently and effectively to focus on our students. Resources however are limited as to how they can be spent. This is also compounded by the fact that our Board receives the lowest amount of funding per pupil among all publicly funded school boards in Ontario.

In light of these challenges, our Board must make decisions each year on where to direct these limited resources. As part of our budgetary process, we are consulting with the members of our community to gather feedback, which will help to guide and inform the budget process.
