The Canada Student Financial Assistance Program is the financial assistance program in the form of loans and grants administered by the federal government and participating provinces and territories to assist eligible students to supplement the cost of postsecondary education. Please note that applicants must apply for a provincial or territorial student loan through their province of residence and must meet all eligibility and residency requirements.
Further details are available on provincial student aid websites. Students are advised to apply early for government student aid, as it can take up to 8 weeks to process following receipt of the application.
