School Registration for Newcomer Families

If you and your family are newcomers to Canada and you would like to register your child for school over the summer, we can help.

We understand that registering students for school is an important first step to settling for newcomers. We believe it is important for students and parents to have a good beginning at a new school, so our settlement team will guide you through the registration process in preparation for your child to start school this fall.

Your first step is to complete the EAL Newcomer Pre-registration form and email it to our newcomer reception facilitator at newcomers@retsd.mb.ca. Don’t worry about which school is designated for your child—the team will help with this! After emailing the form, you will be contacted about a meeting date within a few days. 

Choose a meeting document in your language to learn more about what will happen when you meet with someone from our settlement team:

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming your child to one of our schools!


If you have any questions about the process, please contact our newcomer reception facilitator at newcomers@retsd.mb.ca
