Our college provides competitive fees for all programs. For example, the tuition fees for our Medical Office Assistant (Diploma) program is $7,200 (+ books) and for Personal Support Worker (Certificate) program is $4,800. We also support our students to add in their skillset by attending our non-vocational programs such as phlebotomy workshop, clinical research, and intramuscular injection.
For Students who would like to apply for financial support for vocational programs, we do have following option.
For vocational program such as Medical Office Assistant (Diploma) and Personal Support Worker (Certificate) programs, you can apply for Second Career Grant. This program is available if you have been laid-off. Students who were laid-off on March 1, 2020 or later and who are opting for programs of 1 year or less in duration are being prioritized this year. Both our programs meet these requirements. We look forward to chat with you on this at (416) 233-7869
For students who would like to apply for financial support for workshops (non-vocational programs like phlebotomy workshop), we have following tax credit
In the fiscal year of 2020, the Federal Government streamlined the education tax credits and created a new tax credit called the “Canada Training Credit“. This credit provides you up to $250 back to you, i.e., 50% of tuition fees (if the program fee is $500). This tax credit is available if you are between the ages of 26 to 65 years of age. For eligibility, please have a look at the link provided above. We work hard to provide all our workshop students with T2202 to claim these tax credits in the following tax year.
In case you do not qualify for any of the above opportunities, we can also connect with you with our partner financial institutions who can help you access student loans with great term conditions. Some of these loans also work as efficiently as Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) given our competitive fees (~ 30% to 40% lower than other colleges in our area). We also support our students with flexible payment schedule so the fees are not a barrier in starting the program.
