Community Involvement Requirement

Every student who begins Secondary School in Ontario is required to complete 40 hours of community involvement in order to receive their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). By volunteering their time within the community, students’ sense of civic responsibility and global citizenship is strengthened and broadened. Many students volunteer their time to help people in need or charitable organizations that raise money to benefit a wide range of noble causes. It is truly an enriching experience and one that often inspires a career choice.

Students entering high school in Ontario in grades 11 or 12 may have the number of community hours reduced to recognize the volunteer work completed in the student’s home province (outside of Ontario) or home country. The principal will decide how many hours will be granted once the student has been accepted into Westfield Secondary School.

At Westfield, we cooperate with government organizations, such as Toronto Daily Bread Food Bank, North York Harvest Food Bank, Canadian Red Cross, Toronto Animal Services, Toronto Humane Society, North York Community House, Toronto Public Library, North Toronto Cat Rescue, Salvation Army …etc…where we can help our students find volunteer placements that they have an interest in time.
