Registration Information
Posted on 11/24/2020

School Registration is on-going for the current school year.  You may register anytime during the school year.  Please see the Register all Summer Long link on our homepage for more information on registering during the summer.   (NOTE: Registration for the 2022-2023 school year will begin in January 2022)  


Step 1 - Find your school 

Use our school locator to find your child's designated school. This is the school your child should attend based on where you live in Ottawa.

If you would like to register your child in an OCDSB school that is not their designated school, you will need to apply for a cross-boundary transfer. Please be advised that not all cross-boundary transfers are approved.

New to Canada?

The Family Reception Centre is designed to help if English is not your first language. Staff can also assist with new Permanent Resident to Canada, returning from abroad or from a French language school board. Please call our Family Reception Centre at 613-239-2416 to make an appointment.

Don’t forget to collect all of the supporting documents you need to register your child:

1. Your child's proof of age (in the form of a birth certificate, baptismal certificate, registration of birth card, or passport). Note: Registration cannot be completed without one of these forms of identification.

2. Your child's proof of address (minimum of two currently dated documents of the following: property tax bill, assessment notice, purchase of sale agreement, mail redirections or rental agreement for a separately assessed unit, utility bills).

3. Your child’s Ontario health card.  Immigration documents if applicable and custody/access documentation if applicable.

Ottawa Public Health requires proof that your child has received proper immunization. All children attending school in Ontario must be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles and rubella, unless there is a valid exemption.
