The Toronto District School Board administers all publicly-funded elementary and secondary schools in the City of Toronto, which includes the former municipalities of East York, Etobicoke, North York, Scarborough, Toronto and York.
Amalgamation of these municipalities took place on January 1, 1998, and the respective school boards were also merged to become the largest school board in Canada, and the fourth largest in North America. There are currently more than 270,000 students in 558 schools, and countless others closed over the years that may have war memorials that should be included in For King and Country.
The Toronto District School Board has the largest education-based archival, artifact and fine art collection in Canada, including more than 7,000 works of art, thousands of photographs, and hundreds of thousands of historic documents, images and artifacts—overall a collection of more than one million items. Unfortunately, access to the collection is very limited at this point.
