ON invests $50M in Virtual Learning Strategy

December 15, 2020
The Government of Ontario has invested $50M in a Virtual Learning Strategy. The Virtual Learning Strategy will position ON as a global leader in virtual education as it focuses on accessibility and sustainable growth. The funds will be used to create high-quality, accessible virtual learning and education technologies for postsecondary students, including lifelong learners and international students studying from home. “The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of high-quality and accessible virtual learning,” said Ross Romano, Minister of College and Universities. “It became abundantly clear during [the early days of COVID-19] that Ontario could once again demonstrate our world renowned leadership in postsecondary education by developing our own ‘Ontario Made’ virtual strategy with education that is flexible and responsive to the needs of the labour market.” ON (ON)
