Canada Student Grants are available to students from most provinces and territories except those from the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Quebec. These governments have their own student financial assistance programs. If you qualify for a Canada Student Loan, you are automatically assessed for most Canada Student Grants, with the exception of the Grant for Services and Equipment for Students with Permanent Disabilities, which requires a separate application. You may be eligible to receive more than one grant.
The Canada Student Grant for Part-Time Students with Dependants is available to low-income students with dependants while they are enrolled in a part-time program at a designated post-secondary institution.
- You are enrolled in a part-time degree, diploma, or certificate program (at least 12 weeks long within a period of 15 weeks in a row) at a designated post-secondary institution
- You have a dependant who will be under 12 years of age at the start of the study period (or a dependant 12 years of age or older with a permanent disability)
- You apply and qualify for part-time student financial assistance
- The province or territory where you have most recently lived for at least 12 months in a row assesses that you have enough financial need
- You and your spouse or common-law partner have a low family income as defined by the Canada Student Loans Program
Deadline: Your eligibility for this Canada Student Grant is assessed automatically when you apply and qualify for student financial assistance through your province or territory of residence.
