Funding

Loans:

Government student loans are available to students who can demonstrate financial need. Therefore, funds are loaned only to students whose financial resources from parents, summer employment, part-time work, and other sources do not cover the estimated cost of their education.

Canada Student Loans, a federal program, and British Columbia Student Loans, a provincial program, both provide interest-free loans for full-time students who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents.

As part of the Canada and Provincial Student Loans Program, assistance options are available for full-time or part-time students with permanent disabilities.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
