The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) has once again voted for John McAllister to serve as chair of the bord, with Corina Parisien as Vice-Chair for 2022-2023.

The vote was cast during the organizational meeting on November 16, after the trustees were sworn in for the 2022 to 2026 term.

This will be McAllister’s fourth consecutive year as Chair, and his fifth overall.

“I’m excited to serve as Chair for the Board, especially with so many new faces at the table,” he said. “I’m proud and humbled that my fellow trustees have bestowed their confidence in me once again.”

Parisien is new to the position of Vice-Chair and is on her second term as trustee. She was first elected in 2018 and acts as a mentor to the student trustees. She has also sat on various committees including chairing the Trustee Innovation Awards committee.

“I look forward to the next four years and I’m excited to sit as Vice-Chair this year,” said Parisien. “I think we are going to be doing some wonderful things for education and look forward to what we will be bringing to the table.”
