Disposition process

When the Board decides it no longer needs a property, we may declare it surplus. To offer surplus property for sale or lease, we must follow rules set out in the Education Act. These rules are in Ontario Regulation 444/98 – Disposition of Surplus Real Property. Under this regulation:

  • Boards first offer surplus property to a list of preferred agencies.
  • These organizations have at least 90 days to express interest and/or present an offer. It may take an additional 90 days to formalize an offer (180-day period).
  • If there are no successful offers, the Board may request permission to sell on the open market.

For more information on the board’s disposition process please read Administrative Procedure 4880 – Disposition of Surplus Real Property (School Sites/Land)
