Hi there

I have arrived to Toronto last year, and I've applied for the refuge status. I'm still waiting for the trial.
unfortunately, I'm not allowed to work, so now I'm on wellfare
I want to enroll in a college program to increase my chances of getting a job.
My question is, Can I apply for OSAP if I'm a Toronto resident but without the PR?

Please advise

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

You can find some detailed information regarding the eligibility requirements for OSAP in our Settlement.Org Who is eligible for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)? article.

If you are studying in Canada using a study permit (if you are an international student), you are not eligible for OSAP. However, you might be eligible for financial assistance from your college or university.

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.
