Community Use of Schools

Ontario's schools should be community hubs where all people can gather to learn, participate in community-based organizations and stay active. The Ontario government is helping to ensure that school space is more affordable and accessible to the communities that school serve.

We are providing $20 million annually to help school boards lower or eliminate the fees they charge community groups to use school space after hours.

Please contact the permit office at your local school board to find out what the fees are in your area.

For more information about Community Use of Schools, please contact your local Ministry of Education Regional Office.
