Community Use of Schools

Community Use of Schools is an initiative that supports access to school space outside of school hours for not-for-profit community groups.  We are offering the rental of schools through a user friendly, online reservation process called eBase Community Use of Schools System. This system is being used at school boards throughout the province and has simplified the school facility rental process.

If you are a new user, you will need to create a new account.  When linked to the eBase public portal, click “Get Started” under the New User section. 
Groups who already have an account on the eBase system will use their username and password to log in under “Existing User”.

Once a permit request has been reviewed and it has been approved, a permit will be electronically issued. When you receive your permit please review your dates carefully. Groups will need to print a copy of their permit and have this on hand when attending the school. If you receive a revised permit throughout the school year, you must bring in the most recent hard copy of the permit when attending the school. 
We will require a minimum of 10 business days to process a permit.​
  • Must be at least 18 years of age.
  • Must have a valid email address.
  • All requests are subject to $16.95 non-refundable deposit ($15 + $1.95 HST).
  • Provide a valid Certificate of Liability Insurance with a minimum of $2 million per occurrence with no aggregate is preferred. As an acceptable alternate a minimum $2 million per occurrence with a minimum $4 million aggregate will be accepted. The Algoma District School Board (ADSB) must be added as an additional insured.
  • Not for Profit groups that do not carry their own insurance can also purchase insurance through the ADSB. The cost of liability insurance will be added to your permit.
As always, priority will be given to non-profit and/or charitable organizations. The option to pay online will be available.
