Post Secondary Education

Youth in care are encouraged to pursue post secondary education and are provided support with the application process, applying for OSAP and getting ready for the great experience of post secondary education.

Government initiatives regarding post secondary education have been implemented over the past few years for youth in care and former youth in care. They have included assistance with tuition and reimbursement of application fees.

Also through the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies, YouthCAN (Communication & Advocacy Network) has become a great support for youth in care. They advocate for the needs of our youth and bring our youth together yearly at conferences located on campuses where youth learn about post secondary education opportunities, life skill, ongoing initiatives, and most importantly meet and support other youth in care. 



YicSource is the Nipissing & Parry Sound Children’s Aid Society's youth web portal: A website created for youth in care (or formerly in care), by youth in care. Created by ParNipCAS’ Youth Network Coordinator, you can find information here regarding discussions, Youth Group meetings & information, links for bursary & scholarship applications, how to stay connected to other youth, and can even share experiences.
