Our Conversation with Ontarians

Over the past year, Ontario’s universities reached out to Ontarians to find out about your hopes, concerns, ideas and aspirations for the future. We interacted with more than half a million people, including parents, students, businesses, not-for-profits, health and social service agencies, arts and culture organizations, researchers and academics, community and government leaders, and so many more.
