About Us

About ONTransfer.ca

ONTransfer.ca is an online service offered by the Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT) that provides searching functionality for students and stakeholders to explore program pathways and course equivalencies across postsecondary institutions. Ongoing collaboration and data initiatives with Ontario institutions allow for informative search results and assistance in student mobility.

In addition to online search features, ONTransfer.ca connects institutional partners to each other and to prospective transfer students through published institutional resources, marketing and advertising campaigns, committees and student engagement programs, and fairs and conferences held at various times of the year.

ONCAT Overview

Established in 2011, the Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT) was created to enhance academic pathways and reduce barriers for students looking to transfer among Ontario’s public colleges, universities, and Indigenous Institutes. Working with our network of Ontario’s 45 colleges and universities, Indigenous Institutes, students, government, guidance counsellors, as well as other stakeholders provincially and nationally, ONCAT is building a culture and understanding of transfer so that students can pursue a more seamless and affordable postsecondary education.

ONCAT is funded by the Government of Ontario.
