TDSB facilities are a vibrant part of the community that welcome hundreds of organizations and agencies into our classrooms, gyms and other spaces throughout the year when they are not being used for school activities. Permits are approved depending on the availability of space and resources and are issued on a first come, first served basis. Fees are charged according to an established schedule.
