Government funding sources

ֱ Canadian students from outside of Quebec are eligible for government aid assistance through their province of residence.

Out-of-province government aid has two funding sources*:

  • federal government aid: known as the (CSFA Program)
  • provincial government aid: each province or territory has its own

Students need only submit one application through their provincial portal. They are then assessed for both types of government aid at once.

*The Northwest Territories and Nunavut have stand-alone government aid programs that are not integrated with the Canada Student Financial Assistance Program.

Student responsibilities

It is the student’s responsibility to:

  • complete their government aid application on time
  • check their application status on their provincial government aid account before coming toScholarships and Student Aidfor related inquiries
  • refer back to their provincial aid account regularly for file and funding updates
  • create a CSFAaccount (in addition to their provincial aid account)
  • inform the ministry of any changes in income, including those related to bursaries, scholarships and awards. Important: in the case of the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), Scholarships and Student Aiddeclares to the ministry, on your behalf, all bursaries (need-based awards) you have received. Do not report these to OSAP as this will result in twice the amount being recorded on your file.)

Scholarships and Student Aid’s role

  • Scholarships and Student Aidassists all government aid agencies in administering the student aid programs by confirming student registration status
  • We help students with the application, appeals process and eligibility requirements
  • When required, we inform students about their government jurisdiction policies and procedures
