Supporting equity through opportunity.

Within Halton, there is economic diversity from community to community. Some school communities and parent councils have a harder time than others raising funds to assist with additional purchases above and beyond core education funding.

School grants available through the Halton Learning Foundation enable schools in the Halton District School Board to purchase needed resources and fund educational programs and experiences. This ensures all students have equitable opportunities to develop critical 21st century skills. Annually, HLF supports about 100 programs in schools across Halton in the following key areas:

Learning & Achievement

Equity & Inclusion

Indigenous Awareness

Mental Health & Wellbeing

“We forget that not every family in Halton has the same access to the community and the world around them. The HLF grant removed the financial barrier to ensure every student could participate in this learning opportunity."
