Thank you for your continued support as we work through these unprecedented times due to the global pandemic. Please visit the YRDSB school reopening information page for more information regarding learning models available to our students.
We are guided in our work by the Ministry of Education, York Region Public Health – including Ontario Public Health – and IRCC to ensure the safety of international students. Ontario is on the Designated Learning Institution (DLI) list to accept international students. YRDSB is on the list of approved boards open to receive international students.
At this time, our work is directed at welcoming new international students to the September 2021 semester and supporting existing students in their educational goals.
Before leaving for Canada, please check the following directives:
- Immigration, Refugee & Citizenship Canada (IRCC)
- Ministry of Education - Schools with approved COVID-19 Readiness Plans
What you must do before coming to Canada:
International students, and accompanying family members, entering Canada must follow the Pre-departure, Travel & Arrival guidelines and complete and return the Self-Isolation Plan to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to departure. The guidelines are available in English, Chinese, Farsi and Vietnamese.
