The Government of Ontario has announced that it is temporarily deferring payments for Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) loans and making online learning supports available to postsecondary institutions. All loan repayments will be subject to a six-month interest-free moratorium until September 30th. The province has also partnered with eCampusOntario to provide postsecondary institutions with interim digital learning supports in English and French that will help deliver year-end assessments. ON has additionally announced the distribution of $25M in additional funding to public colleges, universities, and Indigenous institutes to address needs such as deep cleaning, mental health supports, and health supplies in the wake of the outbreak.
