How do I pay for my education?
Grants, bursaries and scholarships are resources to help you finance your post-secondary education.
- Canada Student Grants are easy to apply for and are provided to students at the beginning and in the middle of the school year. You may be eligible to receive more than one grant simultaneously.
- Provincial and territorial grants and bursaries are available from the province or territory where you are a permanent resident.
- Scholarships are awarded based on merit.
Student loans are a great help if you need some financial assistance to get through school. But they are not meant to pay for your entire post-secondary education. You are still expected to contribute some money.
Canada Apprentice Loan offer financial support to apprentices in Red Seal trades so they can complete their technical training and consider a career in the skilled trades.
There are two types of Apprenticeship Grants available from the Government of Canada:
- The Apprenticeship Incentive Grant (AIG) is a taxable cash grant of $1,000 per year, up to a maximum of $2,000 per person. This grant helps registered apprentices in designated Red Seal trades get started.
- The Apprenticeship Completion Grant (ACG) is a taxable cash grant of $2,000. This grant helps registered apprentices who have completed their training become certified journeypersons in designated Red Seal trades.
Why is education important?
People who enter the trades, or earn a certificate, diploma or degree at a college, polytechnic or university, tend to earn more money and enjoy more stable employment than those who only finish high school. The lessons you learn in the classroom, or on the job site, will give you the edge that employers are looking for. You have a lot of different opportunities to develop the skills to succeed - and the Career Tool can help.
The Career Tool is one of many resources available to help you make informed education and career decisions. These include information and tools available through Job Bank and other web sites; discussions with career counsellors, parents, teachers and employers; and hands-on experience, such as work placements or volunteer opportunities.
