Closure of Sir Robert L. Borden Business and Technical Institute
On February 10, 2016, following a Pupil Accommodation Review with the school community, the Board decided to close Sir Robert L. Borden Business and Technical Institute effective June 30, 2016.
Since amalgamation in 1998, the TDSB has closed 30 schools because of declining enrolment and the need for consolidations. Nineteen of those buildings have been sold, eight are leased by the Toronto Lands Corporation, and three are being used for TDSB purposes.
Also since 1998, the TDSB has disposed of 82 properties. Sixteen of those properties were disposed of by the TDSB before the formation of the Toronto Lands Corporation. That corporation has disposed of 66 properties. Approximately 60% of the properties were purchased by public sector organizations.
