OACC outlines priorities for next Ontario budget

March 26, 2013

In its provincial pre-budget submission, the Ontario Association of Career Colleges recommends that the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs includes changes to fiscal policies which the association argues "treat career college students inequitably, and in fact serve as barriers to access to career college programs of study for many students for whom a career college is the best choice." OACC also recommends that career college students who meet all other eligible criteria immediately be granted access to the province's 30% tuition grant, and that the tuition cap under the Second Career program either be raised from $10,000 to $14,000, or applied universally and equitably to career college and community college students.
