Financial Aid

Your education is an investment in your future. We realize that every student comes from a unique financial background, so we point you toward the financial solution that is right for you.

There are many options when it comes to financing your education, including:

  • PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT STUDENT ASSISTANCE
  • Each provincial government has its own financial assistance programs for post-secondary students. Give us a call and we'll help you to get the ball rolling with your personal loan application process.

  • RBC ROYAL CREDIT LINE FOR STUDENTS ©
