WARD 9 – Quick Facts

  • Ward 9 includes the ridings of St Paul’s, Toronto-Centre and Trinity-Spadina; City Wards 19, 20, 21, 22, 27 and 28 – and over 28,000 Catholic ratepayers.
  • 14 TCDSB schools:  12 elementary & 2 secondary (St Joseph College School and St Michael’s Choir School).
  • As Trustee for Ward 9, I am Trustee for the TCDSB’s alternative learning program, Monsignor Fraser College, for which there are six campuses across the city.
  • Our oldest schools were founded in the 1800s:  St Paul (1842), St Mary (1854), St Joseph College School (1854), Our Lady of Perpetual Help (1858), St Francis of Assisi (1886), Our Lady of Lourdes (1891).
  • The newest school was constructed in 2005:  Our Lady of Lourdes.

Community Goals for our Downtown Schools

  • CLOSING THE OPPORTUNITY GAP. Our students should be provided with the opportunities and tools they need to discover their true talents and vocation, make discerning decisions, and support the creation of a just society.  As a Catholic Board it’s our responsibility to reflect our values in the decisions we makes as a system.  As a system, therefore, we must do all we can to close the opportunity gap in our schools – every student that enters our doors, should have the same opportunities for success and growth.  Every student should feel of great value by the investment we make in them as a human being and child of God.
  • WORKING WITH COMMUNITY PARTNERS TO ENRICH CATHOLIC EDUCATION.  We are blessed in this city to have access to so much which can enrich our students and provide fantastic learning opportunities.  Whether that’s working with Salt & Light Network, taking advantage of Diocesean programs like Tutus Tuus, introducing our students to individuals who, through their work or life, are living examples of ‘serving our Lord through each other’, or partnering with local organizations to expand our range of available educational tools – we must connect in order to enrich the lives and opportunities of our students.
  • BRINGING THE COMMUNITY INTO OUR SCHOOLS.  Given the cost of living in the city, many families with children are moving out of the city’s core.  Everyone agrees that our schools are an important part of our community and should indeed form a hub  –  but, our current funding model means that small schools can’t survive.  Therefore, we must not only share with the community the great things that are happening in our schools, but develop community-based partnership which benefit everyone.
  • BROADENING AVAILABLE PROGRAMMING.  We should be providing new programming opportunities for our downtown students which are linked with, or supported by, local centres of higher learning or businesses.
