What's Happening

It's that time of year again - back to school!

Thousands of students will be returning to school in September. Motorists should be on the watch for crossing guards, pedestrians, cyclists, students getting on and off school buses and school zone speed limits.

These speed limits are set by individual municipalities. Effective hours and maximum speeds can vary, so drivers are reminded to watch for signage.

Federal Election 2015

election 2015
The next Canadian federal election will be held on October 19, 2015. While K-12 education is largely a provincial responsibility in Canada, decisions made at the federal level can and do impact the well-being of children in general, and their education in particular. Our federal election page contains links to each of the major federal political parties’ websites, their party platforms, and media coverage of relevant party announcements. This page will be updated as new information emerges, so check back often.
