Community Involvement

Community Involvement: Approved Activities


According to Ontario Ministry of Education policy: 


Community involvement activities may take place in a variety of settings, including business, not-for-profit organizations, public sector institutions (including hospitals), and informal settings. Students may not fulfil the requirements through activities that are counted towards a credit (cooperative education and work experience, for example), through paid work, or by assuming duties normally performed by a paid employee. 

The requirement is to be completed outside students’ normal instructional hours--that is, the activities are to take place in students’ designated lunch hours, after school, on weekends, or during school holidays. 


Ontario Secondary Schools, Grades 9-12, Program and Diploma Requirements, 1999

  • Fundraising or office work for Not-for-Profit Organizations in a physical or online environment. 

  • Sports/ recreation for Children or Seniors- Unavailable for 2020-2021 school year

  • Individual assistance for seniors or other members of the community who need extra help in daily life- unavailable for 2020-2021 school year

  • School activities outside regular hours that will benefit the community (online setting or partnerships with local establishments) 


If you are not sure if your chosen activity will count towards the hours, please ask the principal about it before beginning the activity.
