A Future Driven by Positive Change
Ontario’s 21 universities, with campuses in 30 communities, support local and provincial economies. We draw talented learners from across the globe. We champion game-changing research.
The world is changing at a rapid pace, and the challenges facing Ontarians are more complex than ever before. We need to find creative ways to adapt, capitalize on our province’s strengths, and bolster our competitive assets within today’s global economy to nurture a brighter future.
Our universities are working within this tumultuous time to build up the next generation of leaders and future makers. Ontario universities are educating tomorrow’s leaders, finding solutions to global issues through research, fostering jobs through entrepreneurship, and contributing to the health of our communities. Whether it’s partnerships with parents, students, business, government, health care, the arts and social services, we’re working with Ontarians to build a brighter future for the province.
