Community Hours

Students in Ontario are required to complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement as part of the secondary school diploma requirements. Students are able to start accumulating community involvement hours in the summer before they enter grade 9.

In order to be accepted, Community Involvement hours must meet criteria outlined by the Ministry of Education. For information about Community Involvement hours, please consult OCDSB Guidelines for Community Service.

We encourage you to submit your completed hours electronically here.
Please use your student OCDSB account credentials. 

PLEASE NOTE: Upon submission electronically, the form is sent to the volunteer supervisor for review.

The supervisor will receive an email notification that a form is awaiting approval.

After the hours are approved, and the supervisor clicks on the green button, SUBMIT, an email is sent to the parent/guardian.

If the supervisor indicates the hours are incorrect, the form is returned to the student to make the necessary update(s). The student resubmits the form to the supervisor.

Every 3 days (including weekends), an email is sent to the supervisor reminding them that there is a form requiring review for the student hours submitted. The reminder email will end once the form has been approved by the Supervisor. 

If there is a delay in submission, please let the supervisor know there's an email awaiting for their approval.

Once approved by the volunteer supervisor, only then can the hours submitted online can be logged into the system.

As a backup, you can always pick up a Community Involvement Log Sheet from Student Services to fill out. Please ensure the organization, activity, supervisor name/contact information is entered clearly.
