International and Indigenous Languages (IIL) Program Registration for 2019-2020

Elementary International and Indigenous Languages Program Registration for the 2019-2020 school year will begin on Thursday, April 11, 2019. We are pleased to announce that we are now offering online registration for our elementary program. Registering online will eliminate wait times and long line-ups.  To facilitate registration, on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 4:00 pm, online registration will be available for the first time through Edsby on our webpage: www.yrdsb.ca/international-languages

Families can still register in person at the language site starting April 11 and in September. Please contact our office at international.languages@yrdsb.ca  if you would like to register in person before September.

Did you know that the IIL Program has over 20 languages to choose from? Currently we have approximately 15,000 students registered in our programs across the Board.  Students from SK to Grade 8 are eligible to take language classes that run once a week during weekday evenings (from Tuesday to Friday) or Saturday mornings for 2.5 hours. There are many new and exciting things in store for the upcoming 2019/2020 school year, such as the opportunity to learn the Indigenous languages Ojibwe and Cree.

Please note that due to space limitations, registration applications will take place on a first-come-first-serve basis. Classes may be cancelled due to low enrolment or lack of teacher availability.

For more information about registration, courses, dates and locations, please visit www.yrdsb.ca/international-languages or e-mail us at international.languages@yrdsb.ca.
