Ontario is building a stronger workforce by boosting the number of graduate spaces at each of Ryerson, York, and University of Toronto.
Combined, the three universities can create a total of 559 new masterâ€™s and 483 new PhD spaces with an additional $16.32 million in support from the Province.
Over the next three years, Ontario will invest $51.6 million to create almost 3,300 new graduate spaces at universities across the province. The new spaces will enable more students to study for careers in high-demand sectors such as engineering and environmental studies.
This investment builds on the governmentâ€™s $6.2-billion Reaching Higher plan for postsecondary education. By expanding professional and research-based graduate programs, this investment supports innovation in Ontarioâ€™s knowledge-based economy and improves the provinceâ€™s competitive position globally.
â€œOntarioâ€™s highly skilled workforce is our provinceâ€™s greatest asset,â€ said Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities John Milloy. â€œBy helping more Ontarians pursue higher education, we can strengthen our economy and attract the kind of jobs and investment that will build prosperity for all Ontario families.â€
