We Want to Hear From You

ConsultationsThe Ottawa-Carleton District School Board is committed to effective and meaningful consultation with various stakeholders within the Ottawa community to bring about an open and inclusive policy decision-making process. Consultation is a process undertaken to seek information, advice, and informed opinion for consideration prior to decision making. At its heart, consultation is about interactive two-way communication and dialogue. The process is an opportunity for the community to provide information about key issues and their implications to foster better understanding and to allow those affected by the decision to have meaningful and substantive opportunities to influence final decisions.
