Welcome Centre 

Are you new to our school board or Canada? Are you looking to register your child for school? 

Welcome Centres in Oakville and Milton provide students and their families new to Canada, with guidance and support as they become familiar with the Region of Halton, and their new school environment.​​ 

Some of the services offered at our Welcome Centres include:

  • Math and language assessments for students
  • Access to community services and resources for parents
  • Access to the Youth Settlement Program​

Before you contact us at the Welcome Centre, we recommend that you contact your home school directly to register first


Register for School in 3 Steps!

1. Find your school - use the School Locator Tool​
2. Go to your local Catholic school to register 
3. At the school, make an appointment with the Welcome Centre
