Quick Launch

International Education Services IES



Thank you for your continued support as we worked through unprecedented times due to the global pandemic.  As a school board, we continue to offer students different learning models.  Please visit the YRDSB school reopening information page for more information regarding learning models. We will also send communications out to families regarding any updates to the learning models.

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 February 2021 semester and supporting existing students in their educational goals.
