School Fees

In spring 2017, the provincial government passed legislation that sets out what kind of fees schools can and cannot charge for. The changes take effect for the 2017-18 school year.

The fee sheets are detailed and include every fee that might be charged, for every grade. It is important to know that you may not have to pay for every item. Your school will tell you what your fees are in September and will also provide a detailed explanation of what the fee is for, in September.

Based on the changes from the province, your fees may be reduced, eliminated, or may not change at all.
