Student Loans

The government provides OSAP for Ontario students. Other forms of government student aid exist for out-of-province and U.S. students. Requirements change from year to year, so check the SFA office each year for details.

Bursaries

If you experience a sudden and unexpected financial need, and have exhausted all income sources, you may qualify for a one-time bursary for emergency assistance.
