Facility Rentals


Update: August 16, 2023



The Facility Rentals Department of the Board of Education of School District No. 61 (Greater Victoria) is responsible for administering the rental of school facilities to internal and external clients. All permit requests, internal and external, must go through the Facility Rentals Department for approval by using the ebase website.

Due to safety concerns, nut and nut products, shellfish, and latex (e.g., balloons) are common allergens and pose a significant health risk to students and community members. Permit holders are requested to refrain from bringing these materials into District facilities.

Any substance use such as alcohol, cannabis, tobacco, and vaping are not permitted in or on any School District property including private vehicles on school property. Breach of this requirement will be grounds for the School District to cancel the group’s access to District property.
