Dr. Helena Jaczek are pleased to announce that, 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).
Free tuition is 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:
“I am pleased that our government has made access to postsecondary education about the ability to learn and not about the ability to pay. This funding means that more students in York Region can go on to college or university and build the skills they need in order to successfully enter the workforce, without having to worry about how they will pay or having restricting debt after finishing up their studies.” - Dr. Helena Jaczek, M.P.P., Oak Ridges-Markham
“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
