Local Government Week 2023 – October 16 to 20


A montage of photos of trustees.

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.

OPSBA has created resources to facilitate in-person and virtual sessions with students in Grade 5 or 10 classrooms, including a short PowerPoint presentation and video. The slide deck allows trustees to modify them to add local board information. We encourage you to be inspired about what you do locally and how it impacts your students and community. Please see the resources below:

OPSBA will be promoting LGW centrally using the social media hashtag #LocalGovWeek and asking stakeholders and education partners to use this as well.
