How do I enrol my child in school?

You need to provide all of the following information to register your child for school:

  • Proof of your child’s age – A birth certificate or passport.
  • Proof of address – A copy of a bank statement, telephone or electrical bill or apartment lease with your name and address.
  • Proof of guardianship – Required if your child is under 18 years of age and is not living with a parent.
  • Proof of student’s immigration status* – One of:
  • Birth certificate
  • Passport
  • Permanent Resident Card
  • Confirmation of Permanent Residence (IMM 5292) or Record of Landing (IMM 1000)

Immunization record – Proof that your son or daughter has been immunized.

*It is important to know that all children aged 6-18 can attend school, regardless of their immigration status or the immigration status of their parents. This is outlined in the Education Act, the law that governs public schools in Ontario.

In some school boards, newcomer students go to an assessment or reception centre where their mathematics and English language skills are tested. Read more in How is my child assessed to start school in Ontario?

Find a list of school reception centres in Ontario.

If you have your child’s previous report card or textbook, or any other school information that might be helpful, bring it to the centre.

That information is then sent to the student’s school to help teachers understand what he or she has already learned. If you have your child’s previous report card or textbook, or any other school information that might be helpful, please bring it to the centre.

If your son or daughter is starting secondary (high) school, the guidance counsellor will talk to your child about his or her previous schooling, interests and goals for after graduation. The counsellor will then help your child choose the appropriate courses.

Many community agencies can help you with registering your child for school. For example, they can help you find an interpreter, if you would like one. To find help, go to Services Near Me and search for “settlement services” in your area.
