Canada Student Grant for Students with Permanent Disabilities

The Canada Student Loan Program offers a grant to eligible students with permanent disabilities up to $2,000 per loan year to cover educational related expenses.

Who is eligible?

  • 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).

Application process and supporting documentation

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.
