OCSTA Statement – 2022 Provincial Election
June 3, 2022
“On behalf of the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association, I congratulate Premier Doug Ford and all newly elected and re-elected members of Provincial Parliament. We look forward to continuing to work with the provincial government and all MPPs in support of the faith formation, academic achievement and well-being of the 550,000 students who attend publicly funded Catholic schools throughout Ontario.
For over 90 years, the OCSTA has worked with successive provincial governments in a spirit of collaboration and partnership. The priorities we advance are informed by Ontario’s 29 Catholic school boards, and the 237 Catholic School Trustees who serve on them. While the health and safety of students and staff remain of utmost priority, Catholic School Trustees across Ontario look with much hope as their schools return to a state of normalcy and as they continue to “place Christ and the teachings of the Catholic Church at the centre” of publicly funded Catholic education.”
