Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Google Translate Frequently Asked Questions

Excursions Directory

The TDSB Excursions Directory is an internal, online listing of pre-qualified and approved vendors for school excursions. An excursion vendor is any organization that provides a venue or service for school excursions/field trips during instructional hours and off TDSB sites. 

When deciding on a class or school trip, staff in the TDSB’s 583 elementary and secondary schools use the Excursions Directory to access information about approved vendors who provide excursion venues and services. Vendors who are part of the Excursions Directory only have to be vetted once by the TDSB and are paid via electronic funds transfer.  

If you are a vendor that is interested in having your excursion opportunity listed in the TDSB’s Excursions Directory, please complete the online application. Your application will be reviewed by TDSB staff to determine curriculum relevance. There will also be an operational review of submitted documentation related to insurance, safety standards and contractual requirements.

Once your vendor review is complete and has been approved, your information and applicable forms will be added to the TDSB’s Excursions Directory where teachers and school staff will be able to access this information to plan their excursions. The following information will also be added:

  • Vendor logo
  • Vendor website link
  • Vendor order process and contact information
  • TDSB vendor number
  • TDSB payment process
  • Approved registration forms, waivers and information package (if applicable)
  • One electronic flyer

The cost for your organization to be included on the Excursions Directory is a flat administrative fee of $250 + HST paid annually.

Excursions are divided into the following categories:

  • Athletics/Outdoor Activities
  • Camp
  • Conservation Centre
  • Cruise Operator
  • Cultural Centre
  • Farm
  • Gallery/Museum
  • Outdoor Education Centre
