UOF receives less than 50 applications for first enrolment: CBC

January 26, 2021
Universite de l'Ontario Francais has reportedly only received 19 applications from Ontario students, according to CBC and Radio Canada, for a total of just over 40 applications as of January 22nd. The institution had originally aimed to have 200 students for the Fall 2021 semester, which will be the institution’s first semester. Rector Andre Roy told Radio Canada that the university needs the solidarity of the Franco-Ontarian community, and that they must be patient to see interest in the program manifest in the form of applications. CBC explains that other universities have also experienced a decrease in the number of applications and admissions this year, and Radio Canada shares the perspective of other Franco-Ontarian institutions that faced low application numbers in their early years.
