I am pleased to advise you the New Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is currently accepting applications.  This new program will make average tuition free for more than 210,000 students, and an additional 230,000 students would have less student debt.  The New OSAP is available to dependent students, mature students, married students, and students with children.


The Ontario government believes that attending college or university should be based on your potential and not on your ability to pay.  That’s why we transformed the Ontario Student Assistance Program so that starting this fall, hundreds of thousands of eligible students will qualify for free tuition or more generous grants.


We’ve made these changes because we want every Ontarian to be able to fulfill their potential and get the skills they need to contribute to the economy.  Ensuring that college and university is more affordable for students and families is part of our government’s plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.


For more information on the New OSAP and to find out how much you could receive in grants and loans, or to apply for the New OSAP go to:
