About Us

With deep gratitude and respect, we are honoured to be learning and unlearning on the ancestral and unceded lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) & səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation).

Sir William Osler is on the west side of Vancouver and nestled on a beautiful site beside Montgomery Park. Our staff and students use our outside space as much as our indoor space! With a collection of Chestnut and Redwood along with shrubs our school garden is brimming with opportunities to embrace nature. Field studies take the classes to Musqueam Bog to learn the indigenous stories knowledge keepers share.

There are twelve divisions, one being a MACC, Multi Age Cluster Class program. Student enrolment has been on the rise with many families coming through the Newcomers Welcome Center. We have welcomed students from many countries around the world, adding to the cultural fabric of Osler. At this time our enrolment number is 283. The staff strive to ensure VBE Education Plan Goals are front and center when it comes to equity and inclusion, such as ‘Ensuring that students develop and can implement a plan for a successful transition upon

completion of in the secondary school.’ In past years our School Plan has percolated while health matters have focused increased attention. 2022-2023 reflects on our past goals centered around the social emotional wellbeing of students. It was important for the Osler staff to connect with students and families and to provide support and comfort at the forefront. By first working with students on their self-regulation, resilience and stamina, our academic goals can be further developed. Continued focus of self-regulation has supported learners and while we continue to continue this work, we also highlight our practice on literacy.
