For French-language Catholic school boards, capital needs continue to grow. Over the past ten years, the student population has continued to grow at a steady rate of two to three percent annually. Many school buildings have reached or exceeded their capacity while a growing number of rights holders are requesting access to a French-language Catholic school in their community. Francophone students who attend our French-language Catholic schools are entitled to adequate learning environments. That is why AFOCSC remains a key partner with the Ministry of Education in providing solutions to advance capital projects and meet the needs of students and school communities.
