Provincial and Demonstration Schools Residence Regulation
Regulation - Minister
Bill or Act:
Summary of Proposal:
EDU directly operates seven English Provincial and Demonstration schools across four sites (Milton, Belleville, London and Brantford). The schools offer the Ontario curriculum at the elementary and secondary levels as well as specialized integrated programming and student residences. The fifth Provincial and Demonstration school site is Centre Jules Léger (CJL) which provides the French-language equivalent. It is operated by the CJLC (which is governed by trustees appointed from among the elected trustees of the French-language school boards) and is located in Ottawa. Each Provincial and Demonstration school has residences on site.
While operational policies currently exist setting requirements for the operation of residences, a new regulation would enhance student safety, support a healthy and supportive environment, and promote consistency across residences directly operated by EDU and CJLC respectively. The regulation, if approved and made, would enshrine many of the existing elements currently set out in policy and also adopt practices from children and youth residences and child-care settings under the Child, Youth and Family Services Act, 2017 (CYFSA) and the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 (CCEYA).
