TVDSB has submitted applications for 8 new schools to the Ministry of Education. The provincial government is the only source of school board funding for new capital projects (schools and portables, for example). In order to submit applications, there needs to be a significant (urgent) need for the schools. Even so, there is no guarantee that TVDSB will receive approval for the schools requested.

Here are the schools that our communities urgently need:

New West London Elementary School

New North-Central London Elementary School

New Lucan Elementary School

New Southeast Elementary School

New Southwest London Elementary School

New Ingersoll Elementary School

New Thamesford Elementary School

New West Nissouri Elementary School

In the last provincial election, we all elected community members to represent our provincial interests.


These community members, our Members of Provincial Parliament, are important decision-makers in many issues, including education.

Like trustees, they care about their communities and want to hear from you.

Let them know that you see the urgent need for these schools too.

Some of the concerns community members have shared that are impacted by provincial decisions:​

  • communities with a demonstrated need for new schools not receiving approval for new schools

  • ​schools opening with a maximum number of portables on site due to delays in approvals for schools

  • capped enrolment on school where placing portables is no longer possible due to space/service limitations - students are then bussed out of area

  • ​delays in approving funding for schools mean that the cost of building schools rises significantly each month in our current economic climate
