Ontario Universities’ Fair at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre

About the OUF

The Ontario Universities’ Fair (OUF) began in 1997 as a way to help secondary school students gather information about Ontario’s 21 universities. The OUF gives you an opportunity to speak with representatives from each Ontario university about programs, campus life and anything else that may help you make a decision about which Ontario university to choose.

Each university has its own booth, staffed with representatives who can answer your questions and provide additional materials about programs, admission requirements and student life. Each university also offers a scheduled information session several times throughout the OUF weekend.

The OUF draws more than 120,000 students, parents and educators over the three-day event. Visit:

Register online for the OUF Passport
