Community Hours

Community Service Hours


Every student must complete 40 hours of community involvement activities as one of the requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

The community involvement graduation requirement of 40 hours will be restored in 2022-23. Students working towards their OSSD should make sure they meet these graduation requirements in time for their graduating year. For students who are graduating in the 2021-2022 school year, we reduced the graduation requirement to a minimum of 20 hours of community involvement activities.

Students can start accumulating their community involvement hours in the summer before entering Grade 9.
