Our Activities

Report on the Survey of Schools

In the late fall 2009, the Green Committee issued an online survey to the schools in order to obtain a benchmark of Green activities. The survey was distributed to students (Elementary, cycle 3; Secondary; Adult Education and Vocational Education), teachers and principals in the Board’s schools and centres. The final report provides a full analysis of the results.

Report on the Survey of the Central Office

In the late fall of 2010, the Green Committee issued an online survey to the staff of the central offices at the English Montreal School Board. Separate surveys were also issued to Pedagogical Services and Community Services. The results of these surveys will be integrated with the report of the central office survey. The deadline for completion of the survey was mid-December and the results have been summarized in a final report.

Green Awards

  • In keeping with the intent of the Green Policy, the EMSB is pleased to offer a series of Green Awards as a means to acknowledge the important and innovative green initiatives that have taken place at the grassroots level in our schools and centres. The EMSB believes that these initiatives should be recognized as they are the drivers of change in our community.
  • To be eligible for an award or prize, applicants must complete an application form, describing a school or centre-based initiative that has emerged from their Green Action Plan. Initiatives should also be linked to one of the following three pillars: (1) education, (2) green and healthy space or (3) sustainable resource use.

Green Grants

  • Since the spring of 2012, the Green Committee has offered a grants program designed to help schools, centres and the administrative building implement future environmental initiatives ensuing from their action plans, and that are linked to the four pillars of the EMSB Green Policy:
    • Pillar 1 – Education
    • Pillar 2 - Green and Healthy Space
    • Pillar 3 – Sustainable Resource Use
    • Pillar 4 – Strive to be Toxic Free
  • Applications for the 2013-2014 competition may now be submitted to the committee. Deadline for submission is March 31, 2014.  
  • Note that all funded projects require a final report issued by the date closest to the completion of your project (January 20th or June 1st). The report should summarize how the funds were spent, if the original goals were attained; if the original goals were not attained, specify reasons, and detail impact of the funding.  Grant recipients who have not issued a report, will not be eligible for future grants.
