Schools are the heart of the community and a convenient venue for recreational sports, education programs, group and corporate activities. School facilities provide a great place to come together, learn new skills, become physically active and build strong and healthy communities. Community groups are encouraged to utilize our spaces.
Community Use of Schools (CUS) is an initiative of the Ministry of Education that supports access to school space outside of school hours for community groups. Our school facilities are available for community use from mid-September to June, Monday to Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Our schools are not open for community use during Christmas, March and Summer Breaks or Statutory Holidays. Community Use permits for the upcoming school year are not accepted until approximately May of each year (unless otherwise specified). During this peak time, permit applications are reviewed and approved as soon as we can with user groups being advised of their approved school sites and specific dates for each permit. Once the permit is approved, an email copy will be sent to the individual making the request.
