Ensuring that Ontario’s postsecondary institutions offer responsive and flexible digital courses and programs will help students learn and build the skills they need to be competitive in today’s economy.


Through high-quality virtual learning courses and programs, we can give students more flexibility and access to the world-class learning of our postsecondary sector.
