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

Gay-Straight Alliances

As the largest school Board in Canada, we represent nearly 600 schools and serve more than 250,000 students each year.  We are proud that 60 of our schools have active student-led trans-positive Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) that show tremendous leadership, advocacy and support in their schools.

In 2011, our Board of Trustees officially declared themselves a Gay-Straight Alliance in support of safe and positive schools in the TDSB. 

Outstanding GSAs are honoured every year through the Director’s Gay-Straight Alliance Awards. Each year this award will see three outstanding alliances receive $1,000 to support their work creating safe spaces for queer and trans youth and their allies, projects in anti-homophobia and anti-transphobia actions and education, and building student leaders in political action.

To learn more about what a GSA is please visit our frequently asked questions.

Speak to your school principal or staff from our Gender-Based Violence Prevention Office if you want to find out further information about the GSA in your school.
