Ontario Minister of Education Leona DombrowskyTORONTO - The Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association conference takes place April 28 to 30 at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.

Ontario Minister of Education Leona Dombrowksy will be a keynote speaker at the conference on the opening day of the annual conference.

Among the topics conference speakers and participants will discuss will be the Ontario government’s equity and inclusive education strategy and how it applies to Catholic schools and how the strategy will be implemented in Catholic schools. The issue has caused controversy as Catholic school boards try to implement the strategy while staying true to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Marc Kielburger, co-founder of the children’s rights organizations Free the Children and Me to We, will also give a talk entitled “The World Needs Your Kid: Raising children who care and contribute.”

Also addressing the trustees will be Fr. Leonard Altilia, S.J., who will speak on “Trustees and the Mandate to Evangelize.”
