Wait List / Lottery Application
If a child has completed their Kindergarten year in another school, they currently experience a 5 to 7 year wait (up to 10 years in the North) for their name to reach the top of the wait list.
Applications may be submitted year round, and must include a copy of the birth certificate and most recent report card if the child is already in school (may be the June report card if they have not yet received the first one of the new year).
To add your child to the Wait List, please print the form below, fill it out and mail to the address provided on the application with the required documents. Applications must include a valid email address and a phone number in order to be processed. You will receive a confirmation by email within 3 weeks.

Online Wait List System
The Online Wait List System is for parents who have received a confirmation email stating that their child has been added to the wait list. You may log in to view your family profile, send an address update and renew the application each October. If your child was added before October 1, 2016 and the applications was renewed on time each year, you can view the rank. If your child was added on or after October 1, 2016 or the application was renewed late, they are part of the lottery system; no rank is associated with your child. We do not give out passwords, however, if you are unable to login, please email the exact id/password you are trying so that we can identify the issue. It is your responsibility to login and renew each October. We do not make exceptions for any reason if the renewal is done late.

Lottery System Information
*Updated June 8th, 2017*
In order to create an opportunity for all families that would like to join the FFCA community, we have implemented a Weighted Lottery System for any student added to the wait list on or after October 1st, 2016 who does not have sibling or priority status. For every year that your child's application is renewed, your child will receive an additional entry into the lottery. The lottery system will not take effect until the year 2022/23 for kindergarten students and possibly 5 to 7 years after that for grade level students because we have to exhaust all currently ranked children on the wait list before implementing a lottery system. Have a look at the Question and Answer PDF document below for additional information. Please note: if there are discrepancies between the 4 versions of the PDF, the official version is in English.

If you forget to renew during the month of October, you can still log in to the Online Wait List System and renew your application, however the entry date will be removed and your child/ren will be added to the future lottery pool. Mark it in your calendar as there are NO EXCEPTIONS!!! Most of your questions can be answered in the Frequently Asked Questions document below.
