Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

OSAP continuation of interest-free status

If you are continuing in your studies but are not receiving OSAP aid for your current study period, you must make sure that your previous loans remain in interest-free status. Interest-free status means that you do not have to start repaying your loans while in school. During this time, the Government of Canada and/or the Province of Ontario will pay the interest on those loans on your behalf.

When you are no longer studying full-time, however, you will be required to start repaying your loan(s) six months after the end of your last study period.

If you currently are enrolled full-time and you are receiving OSAP for your current period of study, do not complete this form.
