Loans: are based on individual financial need and is intended to supplement the student’s income, not to replace other financial assistance. Applications forms, paper or online, are available and should be completed as early as possible to allow for sufficient processing time prior to the start of class. There is generally a waiting period of 4-6 weeks between the date of the application and when the loan money becomes available, and students should plan their finances accordingly.
Grants: You may be eligible for a grant if you are taking ESL, a professional program or upgrading that earns you a certificate or diploma. Grant funding is also available to Employment Insurance (EI) recipients as well as those who do not qualify for EI benefits. If you are approved for a training grant, please be advised that it can take 8-10 weeks for processing.
