The Superior North Catholic District School Board Finance Department is responsible for managing the annual budget, purchasing, and business and corporate services. Finance also works closely with individual schools to maximize budgets and resources.

Financial Budget

At the Regular Board Meeting held on June 21, 2022, the Superior North Catholic District School Board (SNCDSB) approved the 2022-2023 Budget Estimates.

The Board’s 2022-2023 Budget Estimates outline an operating revenue estimated at $22,405,688 million and expenses estimated at $22,404,003 million, and total Capital spending in the amount of $4,655,467.00 from supported and unsupported funding.

The Board estimates an Average Daily Enrolment (ADE) of 657 elementary students for the 2022-2023 school year.

Funding from the Provincial Government represents 86% of budgeted revenue with another 4.6% from Municipal Governments, 7.9% from the Federal Government and 1.5% from other miscellaneous sources.

There will be some ‘Learning Recovery’ Funding available to help address gaps in learning as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. It is uncertain at this time if this funding will continue beyond the 2022-2023 school year.

Quick Facts:

  • School boards operate on a fiscal year that runs from September 1st to August 31st.
  • Each year, the Ministry of Education provides funds to school boards through a series of grants. Visit the Ministry of Education's website for more information on education funding.
  • SNCDSB operates 9 elementary schools, currently serving over 650 students.
    The majority of the Board's funding allocation is based on student enrolment.
  • Elementary enrolments are based on Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) enrolments for October 31st and March 31st.
  • Elementary and secondary FTE enrolment values are averaged to give the annualized Average Daily Enrolment (ADE).

School Tax Support

By default, your property taxes support your municipality's English public school board. However, you may be able to change the school board that your taxes support.

You'll find information about which school board your property taxes support on your Property Assessment Notice or by visiting

As a registered Catholic school supporter, you have the opportunity to elect trustees who will represent and address your interests and concerns at the school board level and at various levels of the government.

Registering your Catholic school support ensures your school board’s assessment roll is accurate. This is important because:

  • Your school board’s assessment base is a public record of the breadth of support for Catholic schools
  • It helps track demographic trends for educational planning purposes
  • It guarantees your right to enroll your children in Catholic schools. However, we do welcome non-Catholic children to our schools. 

Benefits of changing your school support

In addition to supporting the board that best reflects your educational preferences, you will be able to vote in the next municipal election for trustees for the school board that you support.
If you do not have children registered at a Superior North Catholic District School Board school, you can still choose to support Catholic education.

The process to change your school board support

To change the school board designation that The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) has on file for you, please follow these steps:
