Council of Commissioners

Governance

Every school board in Quebec is governed by a Council of Commissioners whose members are elected, or appointed, under the Act respecting School Elections.

At New Frontiers, our territory is divided into 10 wards, each represented by a commissioner. Our Council also includes our Chair, and four commissioners who represent our parents.

Minutes from our most recent Council meetings are posted here; should you require minutes from previous years, please contact our Secretary General.

Council Meetings

These meetings are open to the public and are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. at Howick Elementary School. However, due to public health guidelines currently in force, Council meetings are being held virtually. Should you have questions to ask or if you wish to “attend” virtually, email secgen@nfsb.qc.ca prior to 6:00 pm on the day of the meeting in question. We thank you for your understanding.
