Indigenous Education

At the TDSB, the Urban Indigenous Education Centre is pleased to offer a variety of services with the goal of closing the opportunity gap for Indigenous students. This mandate is approached by infusing Indigenous perspectives across the curriculum for all students as well as by providing direct wrap-around supports to enhance the overall achievement of First Nation, Métis and Inuit students throughout the TDSB.

Staff at the Urban Indigenous Education Centre include a Centrally Assigned Principal, a Centrally Assigned Vice Principal, an Itinerant Student Success Teacher, an Itinerant Culture and Traditions Instructor, a Child and Youth Counsellor, a Social Worker, Instructional Leaders and Community Liaison Workers who collectively offer a wide range of services that include:

  • Family advocacy and connection to community resources
  • One-on-one and group itinerant support
  • Professional development and support for school staff (ie. Land Acknowledgement, cultural awareness, etc.)
  • Referrals and student networking within the Indigenous community

The TDSB Urban Indigenous Education Centre has updated its Referral Form to an Access/Consent to Service Form.

By completing the Access/Consent to Service Form, you are providing the named First Nation, Metis, and/or Inuit student an opportunity to connect with the services offered by the TDSB Urban Indigenous Education Centre. We offer a range of services to students and families, utilizing a holistic approach to support overall achievement and well-being.
