Information for Volunteers

At the Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB), our parent and community volunteers help our students learn in the classroom, play on the field, and explore our neighbourhood. We greatly value the assistance and expertise of our volunteers. In our ongoing effort to provide a safe, secure learning and working environment for our staff and students, we have an application process for prospective volunteers, which includes an application form and a current Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) from the local police. Please visit https://www.ocsb.ca/volunteers/ 


OCSB Parent Involvement Committee (PIC)


The Ottawa Catholic School Board Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) is a provincially mandated committee made up of parents, a trustee, a principal and the Director of Education. The purpose of PIC is to support, encourage and enhance parent engagement at the school board level in order to improve student achievement and well-being. The parent members of the OCSB PIC are appointed by CSPA. 

Learn more about OCSB's PIC on the PIC page of the Board website.



The Catholic School Parents’ Association (CSPA)
 is a volunteer group representing the parents in our school board. We are a resource for school councils and the parent community for information on local and provincial education issues. Through our website, Twitter, and email newsletters we provide updates on education in Ottawa & Ontario; plus we share great tips, resources and information to help parents support their children in school. All parents are welcome and encouraged to join our e-mail list, follow us on Twitter or attend CSPA monthly meetings.

Visit the CSPA website to learn more about CSPA and the work we do to support parents and their children in our schools.
