college is right for you is to visit the campus! Potential students and
their families can attend Open Houses in order to tour campus facilities, visit program
and service booths, and ask questions about the college and programs available.
Below please find a PDF list
of college open houses.

|Introducing A New Way to Explore Highly Competitive Programs |
You're receiving this message because you're a subscriber of the Website subscription. If you would like to change your subscription preferences, please visit the OCAS Communications Preference Centre.
We're excited to announce a new feature in our Find a Program search tool that makes it easier than ever to identify highly competitive programs at Ontario's colleges.
What is a Highly Competitive Program?
For those who aren't already aware, highly competitive programs are those that historically receive more applications than there are spaces available. To be considered for these programs, applicants applying for the fall start date must complete their applications by February 1st – the date commonly known as the Equal Consideration Date. After this date, applications to these programs may be closed. Those applying to programs beginning at other times of the year will need to contact the colleges for information about application processing dates.
The Highly Competitive Program Filter
Building on existing filters in Find a Program – such as College, Program Category, Credential and more – we've now added a Highly Competitive filter with two selection options:
- No – displaying only programs that are not highly competitive
- Yes – displaying only programs that are highly competitive
How to Search
There are two different ways to search for programs with the highly competitive filter. College explorers can start their search by keyword, college or category to identify the programs they're interested in, and then select the new Highly Competitive filter to see which programs in their search results are highly competitive.
Alternatively, the filter can also be used as a starting point to identify all highly competitive programs, and then layered with additional filters to target a search more deeply.
Once a search is complete and users have found the programs they're interested in, deeper program details – such as admission requirements, tuition costs and course requirements – can be found by clicking the Visit link next to each program listing leading directly to the college's own program pages.
