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.

Community Supports and Resources

The Toronto District School Board is committed to the safety and well-being of our students and families, especially during the current health crisis of COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus). To ensure access to information on essential services and supports, we have developed a list of external community-based resources that we hope can offer assistance during this period.

You can search for local resources at  211 (i.e. Scarborough, Etobicoke, North York, etc.).

If you have questions related to the specific supports and resources below, please contact the organization directly. For more information on COVID-19, such as remote learning resources, mental health and well-being supports and on-going updates on the impact to our schools, please visit www.tdsb.on.ca/coronavirus
