Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board is committed to effective, meaningful consultation with the Hamilton community and to a culture of consultation within and among its constituent groups and/or individuals.
At its heart, consultation is about interactive two-way communication and dialogue. The process is an opportunity for:
- the Board to inform the public about key issues and their implications, and to be better understood; and
- the public to have meaningful and substantive opportunities to influence Board decisions.
All public consultations are posted in the chart below for your information and your consultation is earnestly sought. Parents/guardians, caregivers, School Council members, staff, students and members of the community are urged to respond.
You may fill out one of the surveys below through our online survey tool, or written comments may also be sent by Canada Post to:

French Immersion Location Consultation
Hamilton‐Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) has been offering French Immersion to non‐French speaking students for many years. We recognize that French is one of Canada’s two official languages and it is a language that is used widely around the world. Proficiency in French is a valuable skill and an element of student achievement. HWDSB has been, and will continue to, provide quality programs which develop students’ ability to communicate in French.
In order to address current accommodation pressures in the Flamborough and Waterdown areas, the Board of Trustees made a recommendation, in June 2016, to open a second French Immersion site in the area. We are seeking public feedback on that recommendation.
