Attending college is an exciting time in your life – it’s the moment you begin to see the path to that first job or where you set your sights on a career that could take you to opportunities throughout Ontario, across Canada, or around the globe.
The money you spend on your college education is an important investment in yourself and your future, and Cambrian College offers various financial aid supports that can help you cover the cost of your education so that you can keep focused on kick-starting your career.
You can get all of your questions answered at Cambrian’s Spring Open House on April 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Financial aid info sessions will be hosted by OSAP and awards experts who will help guide you towards an affordable and achievable top-quality college education.
