COMMUNICATIONS DEPARTMENT

About Us

The Communications Department is the sole source of official information from Niagara Catholic, and should always be the first point of contact during inclement weather and emergencies. Niagara Catholic’s Communications Department also oversees the Board’s three social media accounts, works closely with the media to promote our schools and the Board, and creates a variety of reports, documents and videos.

Contact the Communications Department:

Jennifer Pellegrini, Communications Officer, 905.735.0240 ext. 297 or by email.
