The Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC) is a not-for-profit, centralized application service for applicants to Ontario universities. The OUAC is operated by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) to facilitate the process of applying to first-year undergraduate programs (bachelor's degrees) and to advanced standing in these programs. Each school is completely autonomous in reaching its own admission decisions, with the OUAC providing only the application processing service.

Founded in 1971 by the Committee of Presidents of the Universities of Ontario (now called the Council of Ontario Universities) and the Ontario Universities' Council on Admissions, the activities of the OUAC are monitored by an 18-member Advisory Board. This board is appointed by, and reports to, the Council of Ontario Universities and is responsible for overseeing the operations and management of the OUAC. The board includes representation from each of its user groups and is chaired by a university president.
