All Canadian students are eligible to apply for financial assistance through the Canada Student Loan Program. The actual amount of assistance received through this program will vary depending on individual family circumstances and the province of residence.
When to Apply
Students must submit their applications for a Canada Student Loan by May 31st as it may take up to 8-10 weeks for the university to receive the funds.
Where to Apply
Students are required to apply for their Canada Student Loan from the province where they have resided for the last twelve consecutive months.
How to Apply
All provinces encourage students to apply online at their website. Read the application and instructions carefully to make certain that you provide all the required information.
