We have an on-campus, work-study program geared to students with financial need. Approximately 400 work-study positions are available. You can earn up to $2,000 and gain valuable work experience and networking opportunities. 


GOVERNMENT-SPONSORED STUDENT LOANS AND GRANTS

The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is a financial aid program that can make it easier for students and families to go to college or university.

The program offers suport for school through two kinds of funding:

  • Grants: money you don’t have to pay back (conditions apply)
  • A student loan: money you need to repay after graduation.

Funding is available for both full- and part-time postsecondary students, and is based on a number of factors, including your family income. Some students may get their tuition fully covered by OSAP.

For the loan portion, there are also programs to help you repay your student loan once you’re done school.

Both the Ontario government and federal government provide this money.
