Welcome to St. Joseph the Worker School and thank you for enquiring about our school.

Updated: January 4, 2021

The purpose of this post is to highlight some of the main points about applying to register your child in Kindergarten – Grade 7 for the academic year 2021-2022.


The New Enrollment Information Meeting for school registration (Kindergarten and available placement in other grades) at St. Joseph the Worker Elementary School will be held via ZOOM on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. 

Please email the School Office at office@stjosephtheworker.ca to register for the January 20th, 2021 evening meeting.


Paul Fraser, our Principal, will host the Zoom meeting and be available to answer questions that you may have.  Registration packages can be picked up at either the school or parish office after January 20, 2021.  Registration packages will also be available for download on our school website AFTER January 20, 2021.   Fully completed applications will be accepted up until 4 p.m. on Friday, February 19, 2021.


All applications will be processed and interview times will be scheduled.  The interview (for parents and child) will last approximately 15 minutes and will be conducted by Fr. Pierre Ducharme, Mr. Paul Fraser and a member of our PEC.   Letters of acceptance will be sent out by the end of March 2021.  Every applicant is interviewed.


Please be advised that priority for admission to St. Joseph the Worker Elementary School is given to families who are registered in St. Joseph the Worker Parish.  Registration applications are available at the parish office and be sure to ask for offertory envelopes.  Even if you have signed up for automatic bank/credit card withdrawal, please ensure that you put your empty envelope in the offertory (with your name on the front).  During the temporary Covid-19 church closure, you are able to drop off your envelope at the parish office.  Space for Kindergarten is limited as we only accept 25 students each year.  We usually increase class size by one student up until Grade 4.


Tuition Rates for September 2021 – June 2022 have yet to be determined.

Last year fees for Parishioners were:

1 child:  $3,040           2 children: $6,080          3 or more children $8,482
