The Ottawa Catholic School Board is proud to provide the public with information about how we run our publicly funded organization. As a Broader Public Sector (BPS) organization, we are required to publish online business plans and other business or financial documents. This supports the Government of Ontario's mandate for openness and transparency.

Broader Public Sector (BPS) accountability resources

The Government of Ontario's Management Board of Cabinet has issued this directive under the authority of the Broader Public Sector Accountability Act, 2010 (Part V.1 – Business Plans). This directive requires us to publish our business plans and financial documents on one webpage for easy reference.

Moving forward with our priorities and strategic plan

Our mission is to provide all our students with a well-rounded education for the mind, body and spirit through an emphasis on academic excellence, social responsibility and Catholic values. Our Board Priorities focus on three core elements, which have remained consistent over several years: Success for Students; Success for Staff; and Stewardship of Resources. 

Our Multi-Year Strategic Plan (MYSP) provides vision for the Board by establishing strategic direction, with an emphasis on student achievement. Operational plans, such as the Board Innovation Plan for Student Achievement and Wellness (BIPSAW), flow out of the MYSP. These documents outline our priorities and goals for performance measures, evidence gathering methods and targets for improvement.

Reflecting and evaluating last year’s success

The OCSB is pleased to share news of each last year’s success in the online 2016 Director's Annual Report. The report shares information about the important work that our Board does to foster student success, and highlights the work and achievements of students and staff across our school system.

The budget for the Ottawa Catholic School Board’s 2016-2017 fiscal year was approved and adopted by the Board of Trustees at its meeting of June 14, 2016. Our 2016-2017 Budget Summary presents the Board's financial and operations plan, and all necessary disclosures. The 2016 Audited Financial Statements are designed to provide assurance that financial transactions are properly authorized and recorded in compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements.
