Discover our School
Our school respectfully acknowledges that we are located on the ancestral, traditional and unceded Indigenous territory of the Algonquin Peoples,
on whose territory we pray, learn, play and work.
The OCSB acknowledges the suffering experienced by Indigenous peoples in Canada's Residential Schools and is committed to Truth and Reconciliation. Read the OCSB Response to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action to learn more.
