School Registration

Thank you for choosing YRDSB and welcome. Registering for school takes a few easy steps.

If any of the following apply, please visit the Reception Centre

  • Students new to Canada (residing in Canada less than 6 months)

  • Students transferring to YRDSB from home schooling in Ontario

  • Students transferring to YRDSB from other boards in Ontario/other provinces with time-sensitive documents, e.g. work permits, refugee claimants

  • Returning students from outside Canada who have been residing elsewhere internationally for over one year

All other students should register as follows:
Step 1:  Using our School Locator, find your home school using your home address.  Any requests for transfer will be arranged through your home school.  

Step 2: Download and complete any required forms:

Step 3: Find and bring these supporting documents (originals required) to bring with you to the school:

  • Proof of child’s age (Birth Certificate/Passport)

  • Proof of your child’s address - two documents, one from each of the categories below showing the home address;

    • Category A - notice of tax assessment, current rental/lease agreement, agreement to purchase including proof of purchase provided before the pupil attends the school, or property tax bill, and

    • Category B - utility bill, bank statement or other official document.

Note:  Family living with relatives or friends must provide a letter of residency from the friend/relative, a property tax bill, and one utility bill in the name of the friend/relative.  

Step 4:  Visit your home school.  They will help to identify and explain any special programs available to your child.



  • While a new school is being built, registrations will take place at a nearby school. Please visit our New Schools on our website for more information.  

  • Elementary schools are closed during July and August.  Please contact the Community Education Centre in your area to set up your registration appointment.
