School Permits

By Order of the Premier of Ontario​, all publicly funded schools in Ontario will be closed for the rest of the school year to interrupt the spread of COVID-19.  

These closures also include the cancellation of all permits requesting the use of both indoor and outdoor school facilities.  

We understand this Order interrupts the program(s) you offer but thank you for your understanding.​

Permits commence on or about the second week of September and end on or about the second week of June. Summer permits will start the second week of July and end two full weeks before Labour day. Exact start and end dates will be confirmed upon issue of the permit. Permits do run on PA days but not in the evenings of March Break.

Please note that all applications to renew permits are due on or before January 31, 2020. Late submission of a renewal request may result in losing the current timeslot for the 2020-21 year. New permit requests are accepted throughout the year and will be approved in accordance with our policy and procedure.

All denied permits are placed on our waiting list and you will be contacted if a space becomes available. Please do not place numerous requests if you are only looking to permit one day, time and location.

Please note effective September 2020, fees will increase by 1.9%.

Submitting an Application

Please visit the eBase Community Use page to view an introductory video, create a user name/password and to submit applications. This web application allows users to:

  • view an electronic record of their permit history including requests, bookings, communication with the permit department and permit fees

  • update contact and online payment information

  • view site availability prior to submitting requests.

General Information

Please check the eBase site frequently for updates and messages about your permit request. You will be notified electronically once your permit has been completely processed or if we are unable to grant your request.

Using the credit card option for monthly payments ensures a zero balance at the end of each month and at the end of your permit. You will be charged for the actual usage at the end of each month. This will also result in a quicker turn around in receiving your permit as the postdated payments will not have to be received before we forward your permit to you.

The Board believes that all learners, leaders and community members have a shared responsibility for minimizing their effect on the environment and taking an active role in protecting it. As permit- holders and users of Board facilities, are expected to support the Board’s efforts to reduce and divert waste, and to reduce energy and water use in our schools.
