School Uniform Provider – Public Consultation 

The Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) is seeking feedback from parents, students and staff on our next school uniform provider.

Why a Public Consultation?

HCDSB’s current contract with its sole school uniform provider, ISW Uniforms, will expire on December 31, 2020.  In accordance with Procedure VI-11, Purchasing, the Request for Proposal (RFP) will need to be issued by the Spring of 2020, and awarded by the end of June, 2020 in order to allow the successful proponent with adequate time to launch the uniform program.
Before moving ahead with the RFP process, we are seeking input from parents, students and staff on the characteristics of an ideal school uniform provider.
This consultation is not intended to solicit comments that are specific to our current school uniform provider, or any individual provider – past or present. This consultation is also not intended to solicit feedback about the process in place to determine whether schools should or should not have school uniforms.
The only intent of this consultation is to gather input around the desired standard – the features and options we should be looking for as we begin our search for the next school uniform provider.

How Can You Provide Feedback?

  • We have scheduled two (2) public consultation meetings for parents and students (see below).  
  • Once the consultation meetings have taken place, we will open up an online survey to gather additional feedback from parents, students and staff.
  • In addition, we are also seeking separate input from each of our Catholic School Councils, our Halton Catholic Parent Involvement Committee (CPIC), and our Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC).
