Mackenzie Registration Information

Students coming to us for grade 9 from one of our feeder schools will have their registration facilitated by their home school.

Others who are joining Mackenzie from non-TDSB school boards, or are transferring at atypical times, please follow the three-step process below:

Step 1

Please use the TDSB Find your School (search by your principal residence address) to ensure you are in the William Lyon Mackenzie C.I. catchment area.

 If you are already a TDSB student, proceed to Step Two

If you are new to the TDSB, the following documents are required when registering a child to attend a TDSB school. Once you have them assembled, move to Step Two:

  • Proof of age (birth certificate, Canadian passport, Canadian Citizenship card or certificate or baptismal record).
  • Proof of immunization (the card that shows a list of vaccines your child has received):
    1. Report online www.toronto.ca/studentvaccines.  OR
    2. If unable to report online, parents can provide immunization information to the school using this form Request for Immunization Information for New Students and the school will mail a copy to Toronto Public Health. Toronto Public Health accepts and translates foreign immunization records.  OR
    3. If requesting an exemption, call 416-392-1250.
  • Verification of date of arrival, if your child was not born in Canada. Families who are permanent residents and refugee claimants may register directly at the school. Children without immigration status are welcome in our schools and information about them or their families will not be shared with immigration authorities. To register, please visit the International Programs and Admissions Office at 5050 Yonge Street, on the main floor, for a TDSB school admission letter.

Step 2

Print, fill in, and assemble all the necessary documentation from the list below. Once you have Step Two complete, move to Step Three:

  • Proof of address, including one property tax bill, lease agreement or deed, or current purchase and sale agreement
  • two of the following current documents: Utility bill (e.g. hydro, gas, water), cable TV, internet, or home phone bill, insurance policy (home, tenant, auto or life), mortgage statement. Original correspondence from a government agency or legal clinic may be accepted as a second proof of address document.
  • Individual Education Plan (IEP) if applicable
  • Last Report Card
  • Health Card
  • Student Registration Form
  • Grade 9 Course Selection Form - For course selection choices for grade 9, please visit our course selection site for grade 9 options: Grade 9 Electives

Step 3

Drop off your packages in a sealed envelope to the designated box outside the Mackenzie Student Services office door.  You’ll need to enter the school from the Main Entrance.  Drop off times are between 1-2pm and 3-4pm, Monday to Friday.
