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 YR​DSB 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

The Reception Centre is located at 36 Regatta Avenue, Richmond Hill, ON.

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 are arranged through your home school.  


Step 2: Download and complete any required forms:

    • Direction of Tax Support form (required if property tax bill/municipal property assessment is not provided)

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.
