Rent School Space:
Community Use of Schools
Schools are hubs of the community and a convenient venue for a host of recreational, group and corporate activities. School facilities provide a place to come together, volunteer, build skills, access community programs, become physically active and build strong and healthy communities. Community groups are encouraged to utilize our spaces.
Rent School Space
Space is made available to the community when it is not needed by the school. All new requests are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. If space is required for a school function, an existing permit will be cancelled. Permit Holders will be given as much notice as possible. Every effort will be made to give the Permit Holder adequate notice. A minimum of three weeks notice is required to process a permit. Please allow six weeks notice for larger events requiring use of kitchen facilities. Community use hours of use on weekdays is from 6-10pm and weekends from 7am-11pm.

are no longer able to subsidize permit fees and have made the difficult
decision to increase fees in order to cover the costs associated with the
Fees have been aligned to be comparable or lower than permits at other school
boards and municipalities in the Greater Toronto Area.
important to note that the Peel board does not profit from these community
permits. The permit fee increase is necessary to cover permit operational and
labour costs so that we can continue to provide programming to support student
success and well-being in Peel schools.
