No Funding for New Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est Schools

October 31, 2016, OTTAWA - The CECCE is very disappointed that it was not granted any funding for new school construction during the latest round of funding.

Because of continuously increasing enrolment, the CECCE has received funding to build new schools every year for the past 10 years. That includes funding for its two new schools in Orleans and the new school planned for Arnprior.

There are 750 more students enrolled in CECCE schools now than at this time last year, enough to fill two elementary schools.

The CECCE is still seeking funding for its Kemptville pavilion, which is currently fully funded by the board so that it can provide French Catholic education to more than 120 students in their home community, and for schools in Kingston and the Glebe. The CECCE also has several other priority projects in the works for rapidly growing sectors so that it can make French Catholic education available to more families.

The CECCE has been growing for more than 10 years. By refusing to fund new French Catholic schools within the Centre-Est district, the Ministry of Education is depriving families of their constitutional right to choose French Catholic education for their children.

According to CECCE Chair Johanne Lacombe, “The CECCE will continue to keep provincial elected representatives and the Ministry of Education apprised of its needs in terms of facilities. At upcoming meetings, the CECCE will ensure that they are aware of the current state of its properties and will seek explanations about the criteria used to grant funding for new school construction.”

success and well-being of each student
