Micro-credentials Programs Eligible for OSAP

Monday, March 22, 2021

The Ontario government is expanding the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) to include nearly 600 micro-credential programs.

Micro-credentials are rapid training programs that help people retrain and upgrade their skills to find new employment. Offered by colleges, universities and Indigenous Institutes, micro-credential programs are short in duration, can be completed online, and are often designed for the specific needs of employers and jobs. They can also be taken in isolation or packaged together alongside degrees, diplomas and certificates.
