About HLF

Every student deserves an equal opportunity to learn.
We’re here to help.


Imagine being 9 years old and being the only kid in your class who can’t participate in gym class because your parents can’t afford running shoes. Imagine being kicked out of your house at 16 and trying to finish school while struggling to live on your own.

About 1 in 10 students of the Halton District School Board (HDSB) live at or below the poverty line and encounter financial barriers like these that make it difficult for them to regularly attend or fully engage in school. The Halton Learning Foundation’s (HLF) mission is to help to eliminate these barriers to learning by providing emergency funds, student subsidies, scholarships and school grants.

With your support, every student in our community will have the opportunity to stay in school, to be engaged in learning, and to explore possibilities for the future.
