Canada Loans & Student Grants
The Canada Student Loans Program and the Canada Student Grants Program help by providing student financial assistance in the form of loans and grants to Canadians attending post-secondary education in most provinces and territories.
Loans – money that you pay back
Grants – money that you do not pay back
The federal government’s student loans and grants make it easier for Canadian students and families to obtain a post-secondary education. Post-secondary education opens doors by providing better job opportunities. More Canadians are investing in their future by pursuing post-secondary education.
