New schools

The Ottawa Catholic School Board is growing! We are opening new schools which promise to provide excellent learning environments for our students, so that they can focus on learning and personal achievement. We have French pathways at all grade levels, a variety of facility features, and are open to all on a space availability-basis. We are growing to meet the needs of our community. We want to make sure that everyone who wants to attend an OCSB school, can!


New school construction: Kanata North Catholic Elementary School

The new Kanata North Catholic Elementary School is scheduled to be built in the Marchwood Lakeside Community of Kanata North, at 785 Goulbourn Forced Road, on the south side of Terry Fox Drive.

The new school will welcome students from the existing St. Gabriel School and surrouding area. It will open as a Kindergarten to Grade 6 school and will include the same French immersion pathways available in all OCSB schools, along with before-and-after-school care and a pre-school childcare centre. It will serve as a welcome addition for new families moving into this expanding community.

This is the third time that we participating in this green building initiative which help builders design and construct buildings with a higher energy performance. Our staff are hard at work collaborating with experts at Enbridge and Sustainable Buildings Canada to plan and identify energy savings opportunities as we build our new Kanata North Catholic Elementary School.

Public consultation meeting

The OCSB held a public consultation meeting on June 15, 2017 to review the proposed attendance boundary for the new Kanata North Catholic Elementary School. The new boundary will impact the existing boundary for St. Gabriel and only students attending St. Gabriel would be affected. Minor modifications to the St. Isidore boundary are also proposed, but no exisiting students would be impacted.
