Canada Student Loans & Ontario Student Aid Program

Planning your education is an important life decision. How much will your program cost in time, money and effort? What kinds of college financial resources may be available? The objective of student financial assistance is to help eligible students who do not have the resources to meet the costs of postsecondary education. The intention is to promote equality of opportunity for postsecondary studies by providing financial assistance for educational costs and basic living expenses where students (and their families) do not have the resources to meet these costs.

Student Grants

Your dedicated Admissions Representative will provide program information, discuss admission requirements, and guide you through a step-by-step estimate of potential grants or loans you may qualify for.

Grants For Students With Children

Grants for Students with Children assists full-time and part-time postsecondary students with dependents. An eligible dependent, by definition, is someone for whom you receive the Canada Child Tax Benefit or for whom you claim a deduction on your federal tax return.

Child-Care Bursary

This non-repayable bursary assists students who have child-care costs for three or more children.
