City Accepting Submissions for New Crossing Guard Locations

As a result of the recommendations from the Toronto Police Service Transformational Task Force, the School Crossing Guard Program is currently being transitioned from the Toronto Police Service to the City of Toronto, Transportation Services. The current School Crossing Guard Program ('Program') is administered by Toronto Police Service who will continue to run the Program until the City officially takes over on August 1, 2019.

During this transition period, the City is working closely with Toronto Police Services to update the process for approving new school crossing guard location requests.

Starting April 8, 2019, the City of Toronto will be accepting all requests for new school crossing guard locations. Residents who would like to request a new school crossing guard location should visit: There will be a form posted online that will need to be completed. There are two intake periods ending January 31 and July 31 of each year. Once a request is received, the review process takes between six and eight months to confirm results of the evaluation.

If you have any questions about the transfer of the program, please contact the School Crossing Guard hotline at 416-397-7672 or
