Make Sure Your School Support Designation is English Separate (Catholic)
It’s a powerful message in support of Catholic education
By registering your child into a Dufferin-Peel Catholic school, you have chosen to support Catholic education through direction of your school support.
When you designate yourself as an English Separate school supporter, you help promote a strong political voice through your elected representative (Trustee) in ensuring your rights to a Catholic education for the young people in our province.
To verify that you are registered as an English Separate school supporter:
- Check the assessment section of your Tax Bill or Property Assessment Notice
- Check your Voter Information Card received during an election year
To register or change your direction of school support, contact the Admissions Department
905-890-0708 ext. 24512.
Application for Direction of School Support
Separate School Lease Agreement Form
A Separate School Lease Agreement is an additional document required by the government, which allows people, jointly responsible for the payment of property taxes, either directly through ownership or indirectly through the payment of rent, one of whom is non-Catholic, to direct school support to the Catholic system.
Both of the above forms should be completed and mailed to:
Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board
40 Matheson Boulevard West
Mississauga, ON L5R 1C5
All Catholics are eligible to support Catholic education!
Those Catholic ratepayers who don’t use the Catholic school system are also important to the continuation of our Catholic education system. School support direction should be made even if you don’t have children currently attending school. It is an investment in our future and all Catholic ratepayers are partners with Catholic educators in this investment.
Have you moved?
Even if you have been an English Separate supporter in the past, the designation DOES NOT follow you when you relocate. Every time you move, it is essential that you re-declare yourself as a Catholic school supporter.
