Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)

The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) provides eligible students with various types of assistance based on financial need. This assistance is intended to supplement student and family resources, not to replace it. Although assistance is not based on academic standing, you are expected to maintain satisfactory progress in your studies.
