As Ontario’s economy continues to transform, a postsecondary education is increasingly vital for developing the broad set of skills required in today’s and tomorrow’s workplaces. Government and educators must continue working together to ensure that all Ontarians who are willing and qualified can access a postsecondary education and the learning and economic opportunities that come with it.
Ontario’s universities are committed to helping ensure any willing and qualified Ontarian can access a university education. To achieve that, universities are engaged in a wide range of work:
Our eINFO website offers comprehensive and easily accessible information about programs, scholarships and the application process to support prospective students in making informed decisions.
Universities are committed to increasing access for students from low-income families. We provide students with more than $900 million in scholarships and bursaries, and run programs to reach out into our communities and help underserved students prepare for a postsecondary education.
Universities also work closely with high school counsellors, and are committed to doing so further to continue improving the delivery of information about options at colleges and universities and how students can best use a postsecondary education to set themselves up for the jobs of the future.
Help high schools prepare students for the transition to university by providing students with training on managing university workloads, financial literacy and living independently.
Continue to improve access to data about in-demand jobs and marketable skills, so students and parents can better assess career opportunities and understand how a university education can help lead the way to a successful future.
Work with universities to attract and support first-generation university students.
