Ontario is making college and university more accessible and affordable for low- and middle-income students and their families through the new Ontario Student Grant.
The non-repayable Ontario Student Grant will start in the 2017-18 academic year.
Making Tuition More Affordable
“The OSG will make average college or university tuition free for students with financial need from families with incomes of $50,000 or less, and will make tuition more affordable for middle-class families.
Under the new OSG:
Students from families with incomes under $50,000 will have no provincial student debt.
More than 50 per cent of students from families with incomes of $83,000 or less will receive non-repayable grants that will exceed average college or university tuition.
All students will be the same or better off as under the Ontario Tuition Grant.
Ninety per cent of dependent college students and 70 per cent of dependent university students from families with incomes under $50,000 will receive grants greater than their average cost of tuition.
In addition, the Province will:
Increase access to interest-free and low-cost loans for middle- and upper-income families.
Expand financial support for mature and married students.
Raise the Ontario weekly assistance maximum levels for individuals and married and sole-support parents.”
Ontario is making college and university more accessible and affordable for low- and middle-income students and their families through the single-largest modernization ever of the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP).
Premier Kathleen Wynne was at Jarvis Collegiate in Toronto today to present details about the new Ontario Student Grant, which was announced in the 2016 Budget. Under the new grant program, the government will replace a number of existing provincial assistance programs with a single, targeted, non-repayable Ontario Student Grant starting in the 2017-18 academic year. The changes to OSAP will make average tuition free for more than 150,000 eligible low- and middle-income students, and will reduce the cost for many more by:
Providing the majority of eligible students whose parents earn the median annual income of $83,300 or less with enough in grants to more than cover their tuition costs
Eliminating provincial student loan debt for eligible students whose parents earn less than $50,000
Ensuring that no eligible student receives less non-repayable aid through the new grant than they currently do through the 30% Off Ontario Tuition Grant.
The following new agreements signed on October 31, 2014, as part of Premier Kathleen Wynne’s mission to China will bring 850 new jobs to Ontario communities:
Yiwu North America Corporation announced a $100-million investment to establish a new trading centre in Whitchurch-Stouffville.
The centre will serve as a hub for international manufacturers and distributors to market their products in North America.
The first phase of the project is expected to create 800 jobs.
Respon International, in a joint venture with Love & Health Venture Capital, will develop the Respon Financial Plaza and offer financial management and services in Canada.
The company will invest $9 million and create 50 new jobs.
Tourism Toronto signed an agreement with Perfect China to hold its annual convention in the city in 2016.
Perfect China markets health food, household and beauty products internationally.
The value of this opportunity is $25 million and will bring 5,000 Chinese visitors to Toronto.
New deals announced on November 1, the final day of the mission, included:
Huawei, one of the world’s leading telecommunications technology companies. Huawei’s Canadian headquarters is in Markham.
The company is planning a major expansion in Ontario valued at up to $210 million over the next five years.
The investment will create up to 325 new jobs in Ontario, including approximately 250 positions for engineers and researchers and at least 75 new marketing, sales and support positions.
Ontario delegates signed 26 agreements during the week-long mission.
This mission builds on Minister of Research and Innovation Reza Moridi’s science and technology mission to China in March 2014, which resulted in 12 new collaboration projects between Ontario and Chinese research institutions and industry partners.
Ontario attracted a total of $966 million in new investment by Chinese companies during Premier Kathleen Wynne’s mission to China. These projects will create 1,800 jobs in communities across the province.
