Ontario Universities' Application Centre
The Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC) is a non-profit organization that acts as a central bureau for managing the processing of applications to universities in the Canadian province of Ontario. The OUAC was founded in 1971 by the Council of Ontario Universities and the Ontario Universities' Council on Admissions, as the benefits of central application processing were recognized.
Currently, the OUAC handles undergraduate applications, and professional applications for Ontario's medical, law, education, and rehabilitation sciences programs. Applications are handled on-line through the OUAC's "Compass" system, and may alternatively be handled as paper applications.
