As the largest school Board in Canada, we represent nearly 600 schools and serve more than 250,000 students each year. We are proud that many of our schools have active, student-led Gender and Sexuality Alliances (GSAs) that show tremendous leadership, advocacy and support in their schools.
In 2011, our Board of Trustees officially declared themselves a GSA in support of safe and positive schools in the TDSB.
Outstanding GSAs are honoured every year through the Director’s Gender and Sexuality Alliances Awards. Each year, this award recognizes three outstanding alliances and provides $1,000 to support their work creating safe spaces for queer and trans youth and their allies, projects in anti-homophobia and anti-transphobia actions and education, and building student leaders in political action.
