Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)

The Ontario Student Assistance Program offers financial assistance to help students from lower income families meet the costs of postsecondary education. OSAP assistance is intended to supplement financial resources of students and their families. (A student must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada or a protected person.)

Assistance is based on financial need as established by the federal and/or provincial governments and as determined by the Ontario Student Assistance Program. The amount of loan and/or grant students are eligible to receive is based on the information they provide.

Online application is recommended as there are no application fees; website (osap.gov.on.ca) is available 24 hours a day, and students can get an on-the-spot estimate of the amount of funding they may receive.
