Its headquarters is on Matheson Boulevard West in Mississauga.[3] The board was previously known as the Dufferin-Peel Separate School Board (DPSSB) before 1998.



The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board is the successor to The Dufferin-Peel Separate School Board (French: Conseil des écoles séparées catholiques de Dufferin & Peel, which was established in 1969 by the merger of eight small separate boards.

As of 1986 the Dufferin-Peel Separate School Board was Ontario's second largest Catholic school board.[4] On January 1, 1998, the DPSSB was renamed to DPCDSB and its French schools within the board became part of the Conseil scolaire de district catholique Centre-Sud.

By 1999 the district had a co-operative transportation service with the Peel District School Board. During that year its school operation costs were $4.65 ($6.68 when adjusted for inflation) per square foot. The funding guidelines by a ministry[clarification needed] were $5.20 ($7.47 when adjusted for inflation).[5]

Around the time of the DPSSB's existence, the board operated six francophone schools.


As of 1999, there is one dual DPCDSB-Peel District School Board Catholic-secular public school.[5]
