Extraordinary Lives Start With a Great Catholic Education

2022-23 Public Budget Consultation




 Catalog-Item Reuse ‭[1]‬


The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) has embraced the use of public webcasts and online data collection and reporting for budget development, which will continue with the 2022-2023 process. The Ministry of Education released the Grants for Student Needs (GSN) on February 17, 2022 and all school boards are required to submit a compliant budget by the end of June 2022.

Funding resources have been limited in recent years for DPCDSB, compounded by declining enrolment and significant increases in Long-Term Disability (LTD) benefit costs. The budget development process involves making decisions on expenditure areas where these limited funding resources should be directed. Consultation with, and input from, our community members helps inform the budget process.

 Public Budget Consultation Webcast - April 28, 2022  

Summary of Current Issues and Budget Pressures 

The GSN are the primary revenue source for the DPCDSB. Information is available on the Ministry of Education website

The development of the 2022-2023 Budget will be guided by a collaborative and transparent process, ensuring all decisions align with the DPCDSB Multi-Year Strategic Plan (MYSP).

During the 2020-2021 year, the DPCDSB entered into a Financial Recovery Plan with the Ministry to address a significant expenditure concern with LTD. DPCDSB will operate under the Financial Recovery Plan until the issue has been resolved. Prudent fiscal management will be required to meet a compliant 2022-2023 operational budget objective. 

All stakeholders are encouraged to review DPCDSB Financial Statements
