Ontario Education Number (OEN) Extension Project
OEN is a unique, numerical identifier assigned by the Ministry of Education to
elementary/secondary students
MTCU is working with colleges and universities to extend the use of OEN in the postsecondary
sector and (if feasible) to the employment and training sector
The OEN Extension Project makes available to institutions a validation and verification model
for student records that already have an OEN, and provides a mechanism for colleges and
universities to request that an OEN be assigned to students who do not have one
The project builds on the existing OEN registry in collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of
Education, and MTCU works closely with universities, colleges and the Ontario College
Application Services (OCAS)
This initiative is one of the MTCU’s priorities, is an integral part of the success of the Ministry
and sector data collection work and has potential to support innovation and transformation in
the sector

Policy and Research Implications
The extension of the collection of student level data, including the OEN, will assist in
developing a better evidence base for the Ministry and for the sector
When fully implemented, the OEN will improve the ability to measure and promote
student success by:
•
•
•
providing more meaningful and accurate measures of student flows and outcomes
informing tracking and research related to student pathways
improving data for evaluation, financial monitoring, planning and policy development
The value of OEN-based data will increase over time as more student cohorts that
have OENs progress through the system
I am looking forward to hearing the presentations and wishing all of us interesting
and productive conversations on some of the key issues of the Ontario
postsecondary education
