Ontario is making college and university more affordable for students and families in Brampton West and across the province by making tuition fee free for over 210,000 students. The new OSAP will make average tuition free for students whose families make less than $50,000 a year. Students from families that earn more will also benefit from more generous grants and loans, and about 80 per cent of all OSAP recipients will graduate with less provincial debt.
More Ontario students are now graduating from postsecondary programs than ever before, but some people hesitate to apply for college or university because they worry about the cost. The new OSAP will help more students seek an advanced education, regardless of their family’s income. We are levelling the playing field so more students from Brampton West can go on to college or university regardless of their financial backgrounds.
By entering basic information at Ontario.ca/osap, in just a few clicks students will learn whether they qualify for free tuition and how much aid they could receive from the new OSAP.
This is the most ambitious reform of student financial assistance in North America because our government believes that a person’s ability to access postsecondary education should be based on their ability to learn, and not on their ability to pay.
Expanding access to college and university is part of our government’s plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
