YRDSB now has 119 certified EcoSchools and Outdoor Education Centers with more schools getting involved each year! 
 
There are a number of environmental programs practiced in support of Eco-schools. Each school is responsible for the decisions and delivery of environmental programs and therefore these programs may not be available in every school. To learn more about the programs in a particular school visit the school’s website or contact the school’s principal.​​
