Tuition Assistance
and Subsidies

PEACE School is committed to admitting and enrolling students who desire and are suited to our holistic, enhanced academic and arts programs. We are developing a plan for scholarship, bursary and endowment funding, to assist those who wish this form of education and do not have the financial means. As we are a charitable, not for profit organization, and do not receive government funding from the Ministry of Education, we rely on enrollment tuition and the generosity of community donations to build these funds. Please download the attached Tuition Assistance document for information on how to apply.

Indigenous students are eligible for full subsidies, plus expenditures to attend a private school of choice. For more information visit Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada to view the Elementary/Secondary Education Program – National Program Guidelines 2017-18

Tax Benefits

There are other ways to offset the costs of tuition. The NEW National Child Benefit is a joint initiative of the federal, provincial, and territorial governments that may provide benefits up to $1300 per child per year up to age 18 to all eligible parents. The Canada child benefit (CCB) is a non-taxable amount paid monthly to help eligible families with the cost of raising children under 18 years of age. The CCB may include an additional amount for the child disability benefit.
