To help cover educational related expenses for the 2021/2022 academic year, the Canada Student Financial Assistance Program offers a grant of $4000 to eligible students with permanent disabilities.
- Have applied and qualified for a minimum of $1 of need in Student Loan funding.
- Enrolled in a full-time or part-time program at a designated post-secondary institution.
- Medical/Physical/Mental Disability: Permanent Disability Medical Form completed by a qualified medical practitioner.
- Learning Disability: Full copy of a psycho-educational assessment with a re evaluation (under the age of 18) prepared by a registered psychologist that is no more than five years old (or completed when the student was 18 or older).
How to Apply?
An application separate from the Student Loan application is not required. Students will answer “yes” to the disability verification question within the Student Loan Application. Students must then forward to Student Financial Services the required medical documentation to verify their permanent disability.
Applications cannot be assessed until all medical documentation has been received
