Who is eligible to become a Catholic board trustee?

A person is qualified to be nominated as a candidate and to hold office as a member of the Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools' Board of Education if he/she is an elector of the school division on the day of the election. An elector is one who is:

  • a Canadian citizen;

  • 18 years of age;

  • a resident of the school division for at least three months and a resident of Saskatchewan for six months; and

  • a Catholic.

Qualification as an elector has no connection to owning property or declaring taxes to a school board.

In order to run for the Catholic school board, you must be Roman Catholic (or another Catholic rite that recognizes the pope as the leader of your church), and all of the people signing your nomination paper must be Catholic.

 

An employee of the Board of Education may seek nomination and election if he/she has first obtained a leave of absence in accordance with subsection 80(1) of The Labour Standards Act. If that employee is elected, he/she is deemed to have resigned from the position of employment on the day before the day on which he/she is declared elected unless for any reason the results of the election are overturned.
