Cancellations and/or program changes
Ontario Tech University reserves the right to combine and/or cancel program offerings due to insufficient enrolment and to change locations and/or dates in exceptional circumstances. Decisions to cancel programs will be made as soon as possible after the applicable final deadline dates.

Although we notify registered candidates of any program changes, candidates are advised to verify program details on this website just prior to the start of class or to call 905.721.8668 ext. 2892. Early registration reduces the possibility of program cancellation.

QECO/OSSTF may not accept a copy of the letter that is issued to you by this office as proof of successful completion. Please check with QECO/OSSTF and if something more formal is required, please contact or 905.721.8668 ext. 2892.
