Ontario will cover college tuition for low-income students

Changes in student aid unveiled by the Ontario provincial government last week are “the most radical shift in decades in how one province delivers loans and grants to college and university students” according to The Globe and Mail. Suggesting that the overall costs would remain roughly the same, and the shift simplifies and consolidates several loan and grant programs into one program, the government predicted that most college students whose family income is less than $50,000 a year will receive grants large enough to cover their whole tuition. Grants for university students, who pay higher tuition, may not offset the entire amount.
