Register as a Catholic School Supporter 

By ensuring you are a registered separate school supporter:

  • you are able to vote for Catholic school board trustees​
  • you are ensuring that your municipalities property 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 and Eastern Rite parents are encouraged to ​declare their support for Catholic schools.

When you delcare your support for the Catholic school board through your property taxes, you are protecting and preserving Catholic education in Ontario​, by helping to further confirm that the publicly funded Catholic school system is strongly wanted and needed.


Have you recently moved?

When you move, your school support automatically defaults to public. If you have recently moved, you must fill out and submit a new Direction of School Support form​, as further explained in the electronic forms section below.


How to check if you are a Catholic School supporter

  • review your property tax bill
  • talk to your landlord
  • call MPAC at 1-866-296-6722
  • visit AboutMyProperty.ca​
