Support Catholic Education - As Catholic, we
should be supporting Catholic Education. Make Sure
Your School Support Designation is English Separate (Catholic) on your
Property Tax Assessment. It’s a powerful message in support of Catholic
education. 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 or if there is a change of ownership, it is essential
that you register yourself as an English Separate Catholic school supporter. Please verify that you are
registered as an English Separate school supporter by checking the assessment
section of your Tax Bill or Property Assessment Notice or your Voter
Information Card received during an election year. To register or change your
direction of school support, please fill out a form in the narthex and return
it to the Catholic District School Board.
The 2017 Tax
Receipts are now available to be picked up
