Did you know that?
Even if your children attend a French-language Catholic school, you may be registered as a taxpayer in the English Public school board by default. As a parent in a French-language Catholic school, you have the right to allocate your school support to your child's board.
Why is this?
We encourage all parents to declare themselves as taxpayers of the French-language Catholic education system. One of the ways the Province of Ontario uses school support allocations as an indicator to make funding projections is to register as a taxpayer. In addition, by registering as a French-language Catholic taxpayer, you are entitled to vote in municipal elections for school trustees who will represent your interests at our Board table.
How to check the assignment

- Call the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) at 1-866-296-6722.
