Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Excursion Directory

Besides being exclusive to the Toronto District School Board, our Directory focuses on risk management vetting and offers the applicable TDSB information and forms. This is why we are moving toward allowing excursions only to vendor venues who are members. For activities considered high risk, this already is the current practice. For non-high-risk considered activities, a vendor would be required to provide all the information requested in our membership application each time a school books your venue. To overcome those inefficiencies, we encourage you to acquire the obvious benefits by becoming a member for both your organization and the TDSB, including:

  • The TDSB is the largest school board in Canada with over 550 schools and 250,000 students. Presence on the Directory will provide direct access to all TDSB trip organizers and educators.
  • Value: Our low cost contains no profit element and is applied to recovering a portion of our administration cost as well as make a vendor selection more efficient for the trip organizer and vendor.
  • Future upgrades to our Directory platform that will allow for additional features, such as photos, video and system alert functionality, which will provide additional promotional options and features for vendors interested in a promotion option.
  • Ensuring compliance with industry guidelines and regulations, such as OPHEA. Our Directory also includes risk management information, procedures and forms applicable to TDSB requirements.
  • One-stop shopping for all approved vendor locations.
