|Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)|
Financial assistance may be available for those who qualify. Information and the online application procedure for the Ontario Student Assistance Program are available at osap.gov.on.ca.
It is not necessary to be accepted to a post-secondary institute to apply online. The advantage is increased processing speed and instant award assessment at the end of the application session.
We recommend you investigate 'Student Credit Lines' at Canadian chartered banks. The rates and conditions are comparable. For further info on education planning strategies visit http://www.canlearn.ca.
