Education plays a vital role in everyone’s life and it’s a necessity of today’s life. The education system has changed a lot as compared to the past, whether it is a way of teaching or aim of education. Moreover, these days getting higher education needs big buck that is not everyone’s cup of tea. But, if you are planning to study in Toronto, there is good news for you. The Ontario Government has a plan to cut down all the publicly-assisted college and university tuition fees for 2019-2020 by 10%. A few days back, the Ontario Government has stated that the average university science and arts undergraduate student will probably save about $650 and the average college pupils would save $339. This great deduction of tuition fee helps students to easily manage their living charges like living in the apartments near York University and other day to day expenses.

Furthermore, the earlier Liberal government has raised the number of student grants to help low-income students to get a diploma or degree from the reputed college or university free of cost. The recent study shows that the costs of that program jumped by 25 per cent last month and it is supposed to raise around $2 billion annually by 2020-21.

Under the Liberal government’s OSAP program, families that have up to $175,000 annual income could qualify for some funding and now the threshold is decreased to $140,000. Under Privileged student could be eligible for grants that is quite enough for them to cover the full tuition fee under the earlier plan, but at the present a segment of the subsidy they obtain will be a loan.
