Ontario College Faculty Labour Disruption

On Monday, October 16, faculty at Ontario’s 24 public colleges, represented by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU), entered a legal strike after failing to reach a new collective bargaining agreement with the College Employer Council, the provincial bargaining agent for the colleges.

For the most recent updates on the labour negotiations, visit the College Employer Council and OPSEU websites.

Information for College Applicants

Please note that the labour disruption only affects college faculty, such as professors, instructors and librarians. ontariocolleges.ca and Ontario’s public colleges are continuing to accept and process applications as normal. Use our Find a Program tool to explore open programs starting in January 2018 and beyond.

Information for College Students

It’s normal for students to have concerns about the affect of a labour disruption.

Rest assured, Ontario’s colleges remain committed to student success and will ensure students have the opportunity to complete their semester once the labour disruption ends. In the 50-year history of the Ontario college system, no student has ever lost their year due to a labour disruption.

The following list will connect you to each college’s general information page, which will provide answers to common questions for students and their families. For detailed information, we recommend contacting the colleges directly.
