I am attaching the link for the video for 20-21 student loans. Sorry for the delay, it has taken sometime to work through the 20-21 federal changes along with decisions the province has made to support students for 20/21. The major changes for 20/21 include doubling federal grants for eligible students and removing student and spouse contributions both federally and provincially for 20/21. While parental contributions remains, for parents who have experienced reduced employment and wages in 2020, they can if required complete the Estimate of Parental Income Form (found in the appeal section of our website), this may reduce their parental contributions in student aid assessments.
The video is approx five minutes long, and it is at a high level. We encourage both students and parents to contact our office if they have questions and concerns. The online application became available June 1st at, please let students and parents know of this video and that the 20/21 loan application is available.
