Financing Your Education
If you're considering taking post-secondary education courses on a part-time or full-time basis and need financial aid, you’ve come to the right place.
There are many ways to pay for continuing education. Here, you’ll learn about getting money for school that does not need to be paid back, such as scholarships, grants and bursaries. You will also find out how to use government-registered savings plans to pay for your studies at an accredited university, college or trade school.
If you would like to take less formal classes or have only a few hours of class time per week, you might consider withdrawing money from your Tax Free Savings Account. The Tax Free Savings Account, also known as the TFSA, is one of the most flexible government savings options.
Unlike RESPs and RRSPs, a TFSA can be used for any purpose and you can take money out of the Tax Free Savings Account at any time.
Get information about student loans offered by federal, provincial and territorial governments, as well as tips, negotiating ideas and other information related to getting a student loan or line of credit from a bank, credit union or other private financial institutions.
You will also find alternatives to traditional in-class learning that might help you earn extra money while completing your course requirements and information and tools to help you understand the cost of education.
