Rent School Space
Community Use of Schools
Schools are hubs of the community and a convenient venue for a host of recreational, group and corporate activities. School facilities provide a place to come together, volunteer, build skills, access community programs, become physically active and build strong and healthy communities. Community groups are encouraged to utilize our spaces.
Rent School Space
Space is made available to the community when it is not needed by the school. All new requests are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. If space is required for a school function, an existing permit will be cancelled. Permit Holders will be given as much notice as possible. Every effort will be made to give the Permit Holder adequate notice. A minimum of three weeks notice is required to process a permit. Please allow six weeks notice for larger events requiring use of kitchen facilities. Community use hours of use on weekdays is from 6-10pm and weekends from 7am-11pm.
Subsidies reinstated for the remainder the 2019-20 school year
Last spring, the Peel District School Board made a difficult decision to reduce the subsidiary provided to permits for the community use of schools due to reduced Ministry funding.
On January 13, 2020, the Board of Trustees voted to reinstate the subsidies provided to community permit holders, effective immediately, for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year and reflect 2018-19 rates.
The change will be retroactive to September 1, 2019. In the coming months, Peel board staff will work to issue refunds/credits for previously booked permits. We will communicate about process and timelines as we know more.
If you have any questions, please contact Kelly O'Boyle, manager of facilities rental services, at email@example.com or 905-890-1010 ext. 2059.
How to Book
The permit system is now open and accepting new permit requests for the 2019-20 season. The first day for permits during the 2019-20 season will be September 9 and the last day will be June 7.
We only issue permits for classroom space during the 6 - 8 pm timeslot.
Auditorium requests will also be required to be submitted through the permit system. We will only issue one permit per calendar day per school during the season for auditorium space.
We have created a 2019 2020 Seasonal New Permit Request.pdf to assist with submitting a permit request.
