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.

The Gay-Straight Alliance Awards

Apply now for the Director's Gay-Straight Alliance/Queer-Straight Alliance Awards and you could win $1,000 for your school's GSA/QSA
Application Deadline: Friday, June 9, 2017

The Director's G.S.A. Awards are designed to recognize and honour three outstanding trans-positive Gay-Straight Alliances/Queer-Straight Alliances in the Toronto District School Board. Three $1,000 awards will go to student-led groups that have demonstrated a committed effort in helping create a school climate that is safer and more positive for students and staff of all sexual orientations, sexual identities, gender identities and gender expressions. While we recognize the responsibility those in power have in supporting the creation of safe, affirming and liberating schools for all students and staff – we also recognize the significant, unmatched and crucial impact that student leaders and peer educators have.

Be it through meetings, healthy relationship building, school climate surveys, workshops for staff, peer education, school-wide campaigns, film-showings, debates, panels, assemblies, conferences, theatre, student videos, article writing, posters, brochures, websites, visual art, political activism, rallies, letter-writing, community partnerships, other school G.S.A. partnerships, advocacy, and providing personal support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirited, trans, queer, and questioning youth... these G.S.A.’s have pioneered programs that have increased respect for LGBTQ persons, and that challenge gender-stereotypes, biphobia, homophobia and transphobia.

Consideration will also be given to groups that have overcome the most adversity in order to receive the recognition that they rightly deserve. These G.S.A.’s have dealt with discrimination, biphobia, homophobia, transphobia, harassment, and bullying, yet they have overcome all of this because they believe that it is important to have a support system in their school.
