UOttawa, UOF receive ON funding for additional French-language teacher education spaces


The Government of Ontario has announced the creation of an additional 110 French-language teacher education spaces at the University of Ottawa and Université de l’Ontario Français for the 2023-24 academic year. UOttawa will hold 70 of these spaces and UOF will hold 40. This move intends to address the French teacher shortages in Toronto and Eastern Ontario, and the province hopes that the added spaces will provide students with more choice and increased access to high-quality French-language postsecondary education.
