How to Register

There are two registration processes: one for Canadian Students and one for Newcomer Students. Please review the criteria within each process to find out which is the right process for your child.

Which school will my child go to?

Students are assigned to schools in their catchment area. To find the schools closest to your family’s home, use the school finder. In some instances, students can attend a school outside of their catchment by requesting an intra-district school placement.

Registration for Canadian Students

Your child is considered a Canadian Student if they meet the following criteria:

Canadian student criteria
  • They were born in Canada
  • They have previously attended a Canadian school
  • The language spoken at home is English or French
  • or:
  • They were homeschooled and are returning to public school

If your child meets the above criteria, they can be registered by following the steps below.

Step 1: Pre-register through the EECD Parent Portal 

The Parent Portal allows EECD (Education and Early Childhood Development) to uniquely identify your child and provide targeted services throughout their time in the New Brunswick public school system. Follow the instructions on the EECD Parent Portal to create your account and apply for pre-registration. 

If you cannot register online, please reach out to your school to schedule an appointment to register onsite. Use the school finder to locate your child’s school. 

Step 2: Wait to be contacted by your child’s school 

You will be contacted by your child’s school after you complete the pre-registration. If you do not hear from your child’s school by the last week of August, contact the district.

As you wait to hear from your child’s school, learn about topics like busing, school cancellation, and French Second Language on the Current Students page.

Step 3: Finish your child’s registration onsite 

Your child’s registration will be completed in-person at their new school. Most schools will register new grade 1 to 12 students on August 29, 2022. But you should confirm the date by viewing your school’s website. If you need help along the way, please contact us at the district office.   

Registration for Newcomer Students

Your child is considered a Newcomer Student if they meet the following criteria:

Newcomer student criteria
  • They were born outside of Canada
  • or:
  • They were born in Canada but their home language is not English or French
  • or:
  • They are a Canadian citizen returning to New Brunswick from another Country

Please note that the parents of a Newcomer Student must be living in Canada as a permanent resident or Canadian citizen.
