2022 - 2023 Budget

School districts operate on a fiscal year that runs from 01 September to 31 August. The District’s budget for the upcoming fiscal year must be approved by the Board before the end of June of the current year. To meet this timeline, a staff-recommended budget was presented to the Committee of the Whole Budget (COW Budget) on 30 May 2022.

At a Special Board meeting on 14 June 2022, trustees approved the OCDSB's 2022-2023 operating budget of $1.056 billion and capital budget of $124.5 million.

For 2022-2023, the staff-recommended budget is focused on maintaining supports for students while continuing to manage the additional costs of measures designed to maintain safe and healthy schools and working environments.

The budget includes funds to continue to support the work required to achieve the goals of the strategic plan. This will support:

  • The continued need to support investments in technology for student learning, including devices, software licenses and network infrastructure;
  • Important investments in staffing to support equity, human rights and inclusion objectives;
  • The continued focus on mental health supports for students and staff, including reengagement initiatives with students; and
  • Ensuring resources and support for school administration in addressing student supervision.


The following resources are provided for reference as part of the District's budget consultation and approval process.
