Easy, saber.

Sarah, the PSE is basically like an additional document that they look at together with your application. The reason for this is so they can see that you are a well rounded student. They want to know more about your experiences and personality, and it especially comes in handy in competitive programs or when you are slightly above or below cut-offs, as it gives them something other than academics to consider.

Yes, it is required. Unsure if York requires it, but U of T usually has one that they require. It's probably in your email you got after you applied.
