Applying to Toronto’s Crossing Guard Program

Crossing guards play a vital role in supporting the well-being and safety of children.

If you would like to apply to a new school crossing guard location, please fill out the form here.


The following steps must be taken to have your crossing guard application processed:

  1. The form must be completed and signed off or endorsed by the School Principal and John

  2. An email from the School Principal and John’s office must be sent to SchoolCrossingGuard@toronto.ca to confirm that the requester has reached out to both School Principal and the Ward Councillor and that they have both endorsed the requested crossing guard location.

Starting this month, there will be 704 locations across Toronto that will be part of the School Crossing Guard Program.


The program was originally operated by the Toronto Police Service until this past spring, after which it relocated to the City of Toronto.
