This school year, more than one-third of all full-time college and university students in Ontario are receiving free tuition thanks to the new Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP).
Indira Naidoo-Harris, MPP for Halton was at Milton District High School on Friday to talk about free tuition as part of Ontario’s plan to make life more affordable to students. Along with the new OSAP, Ontario students will have access to additional proposed financial supports including:
Making postsecondary education 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.
“Going to college or university is a wonderful opportunity for young Ontarians. That’s why this government is committed to making it as easy and affordable as we possibly can for students, so that they can pursue their dreams, fulfil their potential and get the skills they’ll need for the jobs of tomorrow.”
— Deb Matthews, Deputy Premier, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development and Minister Responsible for Digital Government
“Free tuition and expanded OSAP is making postsecondary education more accessible for many students who otherwise may not have been able to afford it. It is important that we support our young people and make life easier for Ontario students. By investing now in our students' education, we are helping to secure their future success and to build a stronger, more inclusive economy."
— Indira Naidoo-Harris, MPP Halton
