Board Meetings

Due to physical distancing and COVID-19, we are running all our Board meetings virtually. Tune in live from the comfort of your home on our YouTube channel.

Time and location of meetings

Closed Committee of the Whole sessions are held prior to the Regular Board meeting when required, and in accordance with Section 207 (2) of the Education Act.

All Regular Board meetings are open to the public.

When: On the second and fourth Tuesday of every month during the school year* at 7:00 pm

Where: Catholic Education Centre Boardroom

570 West Hunt Club Road

Attending as a guest

We kindly ask that all guests respect standards of decorum, civility and propriety while attending our meetings. We will share these guidelines with you before the meeting begins to promote and maintain an atmosphere of dignity and respect.

Our Board of Trustees welcomes your constructive input during our public Board meetings. Two ways you can share your voice is by registering as a delegation, or by making a public session presentation.

Registering as a delegation

Each delegation is given five minutes to speak at the meeting. A delegation can be made up of a maximum of two people. A maximum of two delegations is allowed at each meeting, however, the Chairperson has the discretion to allow for additional presenters or grant an extension of presentation time.

How to register:

  1. Complete a Delegation Registration Form
  2. Submit the form no later than seven days before the meeting to Corporate.Affairs@ocsb.ca or by mail to 570 West Hunt Club Road, Nepean, ON K2G 3R4.

The reason for your delegation, the names of the presenters, and copies of your presentations will be published in the meeting agenda and minutes.

Making a presentation

Guests may give a presentation to the Board during the public session of the meeting. Each presenter has a maximum of three minutes to present. If necessary, the Chairperson has the discretion to allow for an extension of presentation time.

How to present:

If you are intending on presenting at one of our virtual regular board meetings, please email hilary.close@ocsb.ca at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the 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.

Guidelines for public session presentations can be viewed below.
