Upper Canada District School Board has Wi-Fi access in all its schools and workplace environments. To assure the health and safety of students, staff, parents, volunteers and community members, our School District follows the guidance and direction set out by Health Canada for the use of Wi-Fi systems to safeguard everyone, including children.
Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Arlene King, and Public Health Ontario have confirmed the safety of this technology in school and workplace settings.
We will continue to follow the guidance of these trusted and credible health organizations.
