New Scholarship! The Healthy Democracy Student Leadership Award

The Healthy Democracy Student Leadership Award, new for 2024, is a partnership between the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) and the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA), and is being awarded in the amount of $1,000 to one graduating English public school student in each of OPSBA’s five regions. Scholarship recipients are students of strong leadership skills and potential, who care deeply about their communities and furthering their own learning.

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.

Local Government Week 2023 – October 16 to 20

Local Government Week (LGW) aims to increase youth and public awareness about the important role local government plays in our communities. Please join OPSBA, our member trustees and our education partners in raising civic awareness and promoting the role of trustees among Ontario students.
