You can usually complete your application starting in May for the upcoming school year, which runs from September1 to August31. Be sure to apply in advance to obtain your financial assistance at the beginning of the school year.
You have up to 30days following your last month of study in the current school year to submit your application.
Your application is not renewed automatically. You must therefore submit one for each year of study.
To complete your application, you will need the following information:
Your permanent code (comprised of 4letters and 8digits). If you do not have a permanent code, please contact your educational institution to obtain one or apply by mail.
Your social insurance number.
The codes for your financial institution and your program of study.
Your income or an estimate of your income for the year (from January1 to December31).
Other information may be required, such as a date of a marriage or the birth of a child.
You have 45days to send us the required documents. You can either upload them in your online file or send them to us by mail. All required documents or changes in your situation (e.g. marital status, dependent child, disability) must be sent to us no later than December29 following the end of the school year.
The analysis of your application will begin once you have provided all required information and documentation.
