The deadline to submit applications has been extended from May 25, 2017 to Thursday, June 15, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. EST. 

PRO Grants support parents in identifying barriers to parent engagement in their own community and to find local solutions to involve more parents in support of student achievement and well-being.

PRO Grants are available to school councils for a maximum of $1,000
To support equitable access to postsecondary education, special consideration will now also be given to projects that promote the value of postsecondary education (apprenticeship, college, or university) by providing parents with information on postsecondary education pathways, possibilities, and supports for their children.

Please visit the Ministry of Education’s website at for more information.
