Other information

The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board is the Catholic school board for the city of Hamilton, Ontario which includes the former Wentworth County. It operates 55 schools: 48 elementary, and 7 secondary schools.


The Hamilton Separate School Board (HSSB) was established in 1855 and the seven other boards were formed for the next 114 years in Wentworth County. In 1969, the boards became known as the Hamilton-Wentworth Roman Catholic Separate School Board (HWRCSSB).[3]

Following the Ontario government's passage of the Fewer School Boards Act of 1997, the HWRCSSB became the English-language Separate District School Board No. 47 in 1998 and was renamed to the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board in 1999. French language schools operated by its francophone unit, the Le conseil des écoles séparées catholiques romaines de Hamilton-Wentworth became part of French-language Separate District School Board No. 58, which later became the Conseil scolaire de district catholique Centre-Sud.[3]
