The Government of Saskatchewan offers a variety of financial assistance programs available to Saskatchewan residents, including the Canada-Saskatchewan Integrated Student Loans Program. This program is delivered jointly by the Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan and provides financial assistance to full-time and part-time post-secondary students. Students who apply for a Canada-Saskatchewan Integrated Student Loan will be automatically considered for most student grants from both the Government of Canada and the Government of Saskatchewan.
Students must apply annually for financial assistance directly through Student Services and are encouraged to do so early to ensure timely receipt of funding.
