How to Apply for OSAP - Youtube video


The 2021-2022 OSAP application is now open!


If you’re a full-time student making your first OSAP application for the 2020-21 or 2021-22 school year, you’ll need to complete a short information session presented just before you start your application.

The session will help you understand:

  • how OSAP works
  • your roles and responsibilities if you become an OSAP recipient
  • basic financial information to support you through your postsecondary education (for example, creating a budget, understanding credit and debt)

How the module works

The module contains short, self-study sections with information you must read before you start your OSAP application. At the end of each section, you will be asked to answer a question about what you’ve just read.

Correct answers let you move to the next section of the module. When you’ve finished the information module, your OSAP application will open.

You can log in and out of the module at any time, and your progress will be saved.

If you choose to complete the module in one sitting, it will take you approximately 15 minutes.

Only full-time students making their first OSAP application for the 2020-21 or 2021-22 school year need to complete this module. If you choose to reapply to OSAP for the 2020-21 or 2021-22 school year, you will not need to complete this module again.​





In our changing society, new life experiences are everyday occurrences.  In order to cope with the increasing number of factors influencing young lives, counsellors are available in the Maple High School Guidance Department to assist students in making informed decisions regarding their educational, vocational, and personal concerns. 

Guidance and Career Education offers to students, teachers, parents, and the community a variety of services and programs.  We look forward to being of assistance to you throughout the coming year.

Counselling: Counselling is available on a one-to-one basis, with counsellors available to assist the students in planning and working toward their educational and career goals, and to help them resolve their personal and social difficulties.
Group Instructions: Counsellors will provide classroom instruction and/or small group seminars related to educational and career planning, study and examination skills, and orientation to secondary and post-secondary environments.
Liaison Support: The counsellor provides a communication and resource link to local elementary schools, to social service agencies in the community, to part-time and full-time employment opportunities, and to post-secondary educational and career facilities including apprenticeship programs, colleges (public and private), and universities.
Career Resources: Students are encouraged to come to the Guidance Department to make appointments with their alpha counselor.  Parents are invited to take an active role in their child’s educational and career planning decisions.  Interviews with Guidance Department personnel may be arranged by calling the school.  Information on careers and post-secondary education is available in the career centre. 
Course Changes
The selection of courses is the responsibility of the student in conjunction with his/her parent or guardian where appropriate.  Course selections are normally done in February for the following year.  Subject teachers and guidance counsellors are available to provide valuable assistance to students.  Once courses are selected it is very difficult to make changes as staffing and timetabling are driven by initial student choices.  They will only be made for sound educational reasons.
A student may request a change in the level of difficulty in a course provided this is done no later than one week after report cards are distributed in November and April.  It should be noted that level of difficulty changes might be contingent on space available in the desired class.
