The Toronto Catholic District
School Board is an inclusive learning
community rooted in the love of
Christ, educating all students to grow
in grace and knowledge and lead
lives of faith, hope and charity.
ORIGINALLY KNOWN AS
the Metropolitan
Separate School Board upon its incorporation in
1953, the Board existed prior to that in smaller,
segmented formats dating back to the early
1840s. The name was officially changed to the
TCDSB in 1998 as a result of the Fewer School
Boards Act, legislated by the Ontario government
of the day. With an annual budget of $1.2 billion,
the TCDSB is one of the City of Toronto’s largest
employers with 13,000 full and part-time staff. As
the largest publicly-funded Catholic school sys-
tem in the world, it provides education to almost
100,000 students in 201 school sites, represent-
ing nearly 500,000 Catholic ratepayers.
Currently, the TCDSB is midway through an
unprecedented five-year, $403 million capital
investment program to improve learning envi-
ronments for students through the construction
of new schools as well as renovating, expanding
and improving older facilities.
