How do I pay for my education?

Grants, Bursaries and Scholarships

Grants, bursaries and scholarships are resources to help you finance your post-secondary education.

Student Loan

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

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.

Apprenticeship Grants

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?

The value of post-secondary education

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.

Disclaimer: Many graduates have more than one post-secondary certificate, diploma or degree. The information in this tool is presented based on the highest credential held by graduates. For example, to get an idea of how Bachelor’s students do when they get a Master’s degree, you would select the "Master’s" button in the tool.
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.
