Voluntary Self-Identification for Indigenous Students


Why is it important to Self-Identify?


Self-identification directs TCDSB in providing culturally relevant programming and services for indigenous students.​

It also allows us to meet the following objectives for indigenous students:

  • help fulfill the personal and academic goals of each student;
  • expands and improves current programs and services;
  • develop new strategies to meet the needs of Indigenous students; and
  • connect with academic and school supports dedicated to the needs of Indigenous students.

Gathered self-identification information is used for statistical purposes:

  • cultural relevant recourses (i.e., Elder and Knowledge Keeper)
  • summer work experience
  • employment opportunities
  • dedicated grants and bursaries
  • funding requests
  • ministry reporting

To self-identify, submit the Self-Identification Form​ to your school Guidance Counsellor.
