OPSBA welcomes federal announcement of National School Food Program

The Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA) is extremely pleased to see the federal government’s investment of $1 billion over five years to support a new National School Food Program. OPSBA has been advocating for this much-needed investment for years, since it was initially mentioned in the 2019 federal budget. We are hopeful that the Ontario government will move quickly and collaboratively to ensure the positive impacts of this program can be felt as early as the start of the next school year.

Statements on mandatory Black history learning

“Since its inception, OPSBA’s Black Trustees’ Caucus (BTC) has been advocating for this enhancement to Ontario’s curriculum and we are thrilled it has come to fruition. The minister has said it before, and BTC strongly affirms, Black history is Canadian history.”
