Appearing as a guest at a regular meeting
The Board of Trustees welcomes constructive input from the public during Board meetings. People can appear as a delegation or present at a public session. In recognition of our Catholic values and standards of decorum, civility and propriety, guidelines have been created to promote an atmosphere of dignity and respect. Guests will be informed on the guidelines prior to the start of the Board meeting.
How to present during the public session portion
Guests can address the Board during the public session portion of a meeting. Guest presenters are asked to sign in at least ten minutes before the start of the 7:30 pm meeting. Presenters will be asked to come forward in order of names appearing on the sign-in sheet. Other guests of the meeting (who are not presenting) should remain seated behind the presentation table. Each presenter is provided a maximum of three minutes for their presentation. If necessary, the Chairperson has the discretion to allow for an extension of presentation time.
How to appear as a delegation at a meeting
Delegations can be made up of a maximum of two people. Each delegation will be given five minutes to speak at the meeting. The reason for the delegation, the names of the presenters, and copies of their presentations will be published in the meeting agenda and minutes. There is a maximum of two delegations allowed at each meeting. If necessary, the Chairperson has the discretion to allow for additional presenters or an extension of presentation time. Complete a Delegation Registration Form and submit it no later than seven dates before the meeting. Email the form to Corporate.Affairs@ocsb.ca or mail it to 570 West Hunt Club Road, Nepean, ON K2G 3R4.

Our Declaration for the International Decade for People of African Descent
Shelley Montgomery, Superintendent of Leading and Learning
The United Nations (UN) has declared 2015-2024 an International Decade for People of African Descent to strengthen national, regional and international cooperation in relation to the full enjoyment of economic, social, cultural, civil and political rights by people of African descent, and their full and equal participation in all aspects of society.
Consistent with Catholic teachings, the OCSB provides a loving and positive environment which respects and promotes the dignity of all people. Respecting the UN’s International Decade for People of African Descent Declaration, a committee was formed with the mandate to develop and support an OCSB Declaration for People of African Descent as well as to create tangible commitments that will be included in our Equity Action Plan. The committee membership consisted of OCSB staff and representatives from the Ottawa community.read more
