ON announces new supports for PSE, OSAP for micro-credentials

March 22, 2021

The Government of Ontario has announced a $106.4M investment in Canadian colleges and universities to support the sustainability of the postsecondary sector. This fund will provide immediate, targeted support for the institutions that are most affected by decreases in tuition and ancillary revenues and have incurred expenses related to the pandemic. ON also announced it will be expanding the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) to include nearly 600 micro-credentials, ensuring financial assistance for more learners to upskill or reskill to meet the needs of industry. Last year, ON announced it would be investing in the establishment of micro-credentials in the province. ON (1) | ON (2) (ON)
