Ontario Skills Passport
The Ontario Skills Passport (OSP) provides clear descriptions of the Essential Skills and work habits important for work, learning and life. Essential Skills are used in virtually all occupations and are transferable from school to work, job to job and sector to sector.
The OSP offers high school students, adult learners, job seekers, workers, employers, teachers, trainers, practitioners, job developers and counsellors a common language, resources and tools that help build competence, confidence and connections.
In the Getting Started section of the OSP website (, you can access the OSP Webcast and Flowcharts to get an overview of the OSP and how people are using it. In the Resources section, you can access the OSP Tracker, OSP brochure and teacher/practitioner-developed resources to support the use of the OSP in a variety of educational and training contexts.

The Near North District School Board is committed to supporting an inclusive and
accessible environment.
