Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

Regarding your question about OSAP, you can find some detailed information in our Settlement.Org Who is eligible for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)? article.

Here is an excerpt,

To be eligible to apply for financial assistance from the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), you must be a:

-Canadian citizen;
-Permanent resident; or
-Protected person/convention refugee with a Protected Persons Status Document (PPSD).

If you do not meet OSAP's Ontario residency requirements you may still be eligible. You may have to provide a detailed explanation in your History of Canadian Residency form and submit the required documents that support your residency.


I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
