Community Planning and Partnerships

Building Community Partnerships

As outlined in Policy I-37 Community Planning and Facility Partnerships, the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) believes in supporting the development of facility partnership opportunities with community organizations and public service providers whose operations enhance and respect the Board’s vision, mission statement, values and Multi-Year Strategic Plan.

Community partnerships foster opportunities to create complete neighbourhoods offering an array of services and programs located in community hubs accessible to students and residents alike.

The Community Planning & Facility Partnership Process

The Community Planning and Facility Partnership (CPFP) procedure is an annual consultation process that provides Board approved partners, and other potential community partners within the region, an opportunity for entering into partnership(s) within HCDSB’s existing and future facilities.

All new partnerships are to be cost-neutral, where fees will be charged to partners on a cost-recovery basis to cover operating costs, capital costs, administrative costs and property taxes (if applicable), for the space occupied by the partner.

Current Community Partnership Opportunities

Community agencies and public service providers can learn about HCDSB’s current partnership opportunities by using the Community Partnership Opportunities interactive map. Future capital projects (red dots) and schools with underutilized spaces (blue dots) are both highlighted throughout the map.

How to Submit a Proposal

After reading both the Community Planning & Facility Partnerships policy and procedure, interested agencies are asked to complete the Application for Interest for Community Planning & Facility Partnerships Form, and submit it via email to the Office of the Director of Education and Planning Services.

Becoming a Partner

Partnerships will be evaluated based on how well the proposal meets the community partner and partnership selection criteria outlined in Administrative Procedure VI-78. The Board will have full discretion when evaluating partners and their compatibility and suitability for each facility.
