The City of Burlington has purchased the former Robert Bateman Highschool building and greenspace.

With sustainability and community-building in mind, the City of Burlington is repurposing the existing Robert Bateman High School into a City-owned multi-purpose community-focused asset that will align with the City’s objective of being net-zero carbon by 2040. The reuse and conversion of the former secondary school will have interior renovations, exterior building changes and minor site plan modifications as part of Phase 1.

When the renovation is complete, tenants such as Brock University, Burlington Public Library, Halton District School Board, Tech Place and City of Burlington will move into the building and begin offering services.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    The City of Burlington is looking for anyone interested in providing community programming with a long-term rental agreement for the exclusive use of space at the former Robert Bateman Highschool site. There is no commitment or expectation at this point. Tell us what services you can provide by Sept. 30, 2023.


    The building is being renovated to accommodate community partners and recreational/cultural space. The City is interested in getting the best use of this building and attracting a tenant that will provide community services or programs for the community.


    This is called a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI). An RFEI is meant to give the City an idea of the possible uses and interest for this space. The City may ask respondents for more information and, depending on the level of interest, we may subsequently issue a formal Request for Proposals (RFP). It is very important for any interested group to express their interest through this RFEI process. This is not a binding process and will not result in a contract. There is no commitment or expectation at this point. Later this year, the community will be asked about the types recreational/cultural services or programs they would like to have within former Robert Bateman School.


    The facility has approximately 21,000 square feet of space for rent, programs and user groups, as well as an additional 9000 square feet of potential temporary space available to the community.


    Exclusive use is different than an open gym or room where multiple service providers can quickly set up and take down equipment for different activities. Exclusive use means the area dedicated to the service provider on a long-term basis instead of an hourly basis.


    Tell us what services you'd be interested in providing by Sept. 30, 2023.

    All submissions should be received by 4:30 p.m. Sept. 30, 2023.


    Notice of Collection

    Personal information on this form is collected under the authority of the Municipal Act, 2001, S.O. 2001, c. 25, as amended, to collect expressions of interest for the potential exclusive use of former Robert Bateman School. Questions about this REFI collection should be directed to Denise Beard, Manager of Community Development, denise.beard@burlington.ca, 905-335-7777
