GUELPH, ON, May 10, 2017 – OCAS and Doublethink Inc., makers of myBlueprint Education Planner, have announced a partnership to introduce a fast and simple college application experience into myBlueprint’s leading career development platform.

Using OCAS’ custom apply links embedded into program listings, high school students using myBlueprint will have the ability to apply directly to any Ontario college program with just a few clicks.

“With students already using myBlueprint to research career options and plan towards post-secondary, a collaboration with OCAS is a natural next step,” says Gil Silberstein, President of myBlueprint. “We are excited to be working with OCAS to reduce barriers for students and streamline the process of applying to Ontario colleges.”

Used by over 500,000 students from Grades 7 to 12 across Canada, the partnership with myBlueprint will help OCAS share the value of hands-on training through a college education with a younger demographic of post-secondary explorers.

“myBlueprint is an excellent tool that helps parents and guidance counsellors support students in making informed decisions about their future,” says Karen Creditor, Chief Executive Officer at OCAS. “By extending OCAS technology in partnership with myBlueprint, together we raise awareness of all the exciting pathways and programs available at Ontario’s public colleges.”
