Our monthly Board meetings are held on the last working Monday of the month. Committee of the Whole (COW) meetings are held on the second and third working Mondays of each month. If one of those Mondays is a holiday, then this schedule changes.

By order of the Ontario Minister of Education, all public schools are closed from March 14th through to May 1st in response to the emergence of COVID-19. This includes the Education Centre. The Ministry of Education and the Government of Ontario has introduced new legislation allowing for Board Meetings to occur electronically.  Regulation 463/97 was amended by Regulation 42/20, and removes the requirement for any persons to be physically present at electronic meetings if all schools have been closed by the Minister, the Medical Officer of Health or Cabinet. 

Meetings will be live streamed as a means of facilitating meetings which are “open to the public”, as required under s.207 of the Education Act. Please check back regularly as the meeting schedule will change as information becomes available.
