Additional Post-Secondary Education Grants for Students With Permanent Disabilities

Released on July 30, 2018

The Canada-Saskatchewan Integrated Student Loan program has specific features to help students with permanent disabilities pay for post-secondary education. 

Students with a permanent disability:

  • May be eligible to receive the Canada Student Grant for Students with Permanent Disabilities, which provides up to $2,000 per school year to assist with educational or living costs;
  • May take a reduced course load and be eligible for loans and grants for a longer academic period;
  • May be eligible to receive the Canada-Saskatchewan Student Grant for Services & Equipment, which provides up to $10,000 per program year to purchase education-related services and assistive equipment, such as: tutors, interpreters, computer software and specialized transportation; and
  • Do not have to make the fixed student contribution.
“Our government wants all students to have the opportunity to access post-secondary education,” Advanced Education Minister Tina Beaudry-Mellor said.  “We hope that these additional grants and features will make it easier for students with permanent disabilities to pursue post-secondary education.”
There are also new updates this year to the Canada-Saskatchewan Integrated Student Loan program that benefit students with permanent disabilities. 

These include:
  • Ability to request grants-only funding, which is money that you do not need to pay back; and decline the loans portion, which is money you must pay back.
  • Students with a permanent disability enrolled in adult basic education, can apply for the Canada-Saskatchewan Student Grant for Services & Equipment without applying for a student loan.  They may also be eligible for the Provincial Training Allowance.
Students can now submit their student financial assistance applications for the 2018-19 student loan year for academic programs beginning on or after August 1, 2018.  Students are encouraged to apply early.  Students with permanent disabilities are eligible to access all student loan and grant programs.
