Sudbury Catholic District School Board

Make Your Vote Count in the Upcoming Municipal & School Board Elections

The Sudbury Catholic District School Board invites members of the community to ensure to make your vote count on October 24, 2022 in the Ontario municipal and school board elections.

Your direction of school support must be designated as “English Separate” (Catholic) in order to vote for Sudbury Catholic School Trustees.

How to Check?

Visit voterlookup.ca to confirm and/or update your electoral information in a few easy steps. You can also change/update your school support for electoral purposes and add names to your property address. To confirm your electoral information on voterlookup.ca, you will need:

  • your city;
  • your last name and first name;
  • your date of birth; and
  • your address or your property roll number.

Take a few minutes to verify your information at voterlookup.ca and encourage your friends and family to do the same.  

Important Information

Even if you have been an English Separate (Catholic) school supporter in the past, the designation DOES NOT follow you when you relocate. Every time you move, it is essential that you re-declare yourself as a English Separate (Catholic) school supporter.

You don’t have to have children in school to direct your school support to Catholic education. In Greater Sudbury there are more people who DO NOT have children in school than DO have children in school. Their support is vital to the continuation of our Catholic education system. It is an investment in our future and all Catholic ratepayers are partners with Catholic educators in this investment.

This information is for property owners and tenants in Ontario who would like to change which school board they support through a portion of their property taxes.

To change the school board designation that MPAC has on file for you, please follow these steps:

Step 1: Complete Forms

  1. You must complete and attach an Application for Direction of School Support form (Form Link).
  2. If you are Roman Catholic but your joint owner or tenant is not, and you want to change your designation to a English Separate (Catholic), you must complete and submit a Separate School Lease Agreement. (Lease Agreement Link).

Here in Ontario, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for collecting the information (name, date of birth, citizenship and school support) in order to create a Preliminary List of Electors for municipal and school board elections.

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is an independent, not-for-profit corporation funded by all Ontario municipalities.

Their role is to accurately assess and classify all properties in Ontario. They do this in compliance with the Assessment Act and regulations set by the Government of Ontario.

MPAC is the largest assessment jurisdiction in North America, assessing and classifying more than 5 million properties in Ontario representing $3 trillion in property value.

MPAC is accountable to the Province, municipalities and property taxpayers of Ontario through a 13-member Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is comprised of provincial, municipal and taxpayer representatives appointed by the Minister of Finance.
