Is there financial help available for our child's education?
Education costs can be a burden on many families. The Ontario Human Rights Code and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act ensure students with disabilities do not incur costs associated with their learning that exceed those incurred by other students. For example, there is no additional cost to the student who uses material in an alternative format.
There is a government-funded bursary specifically for students with disabilities who also qualify for Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP):
- Bursary for Students with Disabilities (BSWD)
Your son or daughter may also qualify for financial assistance, scholarships or bursaries that are open to all students. More information can be found in the Money Matters section of UOIT's website.
