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.
