Community Use of Schools

YCDSB will not be issuing permits for the community use of schools due to the COVID-19 health & safety concerns. YCDSB is monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will provide an update here at the end of September.

Please note: In the event that school transportation is cancelled due to inclement weather, all evening permits are also cancelled.

For programs running during lunch time or after school (prior to 6:00 pm) please visit our Special Interest Providers page.

2021-2022 Permit Year

Renewal applications will be accepted until January 31, 2021 for the 2021-2022 permit year. Your application must be submitted before the deadline to retain your time slot(s). As of February 1st, 2021 all remaining time slots will be open to all applicants. Ensure you receive a confirmation # when submitting as this can be used to check the status at a later date.

Tentative start date for permits will be September 20, 2021 and the end date will be June 17, 2022. Permit availability and fees may be subject to change based on the provincial government COVID regulations as well as York Public Health requirements that will be in effect in September of 2021. The regulations and requirements may postpone the start of the permit year.
