The Government of Canada and the Government of Saskatchewan work together to provide financial assistance to post-secondary students. Loans and grants are available to help full-time and part-time students. Assistance is meant to supplement, not replace, other resources.
The new student aid applications for 2022-2023 are now available for post-secondary programs starting on or after August 1, 2022.
The 2022-23 Student Loan Handbook contains valuable information about the student aid program including:

Post-secondary students in Saskatchewan may be eligible for student aid offered through the Canada-Saskatchewan Integrated Student Loans Program. This program is delivered jointly by the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan to provide financial assistance that helps students pay for post-secondary education.
The amount of aid you can receive, including grants, depend on your situation. The Assessment Summary Letter you receive after applying will outline your eligibility for both provincial and federal aid.
If you are a Grade 12 graduate (2013 or later) and enrol in a Saskatchewan post-secondary institution, you may be eligible to receive the Saskatchewan Advantage Scholarship of $750 each year (maximum of $3,000).
When you apply for student aid, you are assessed for a mix of non-repayable grants and repayable loans. You can choose to decline the loans and receive only grants. For example, a student whose income is below the low-income threshold may be assessed for approximately $15,000* in financial aid ($11,000 in loans and $4,000 in grants). If grants-only funding was requested, this student would receive only grant funding of $4,000.
*Note these amounts are only an example and will not apply to all students. Your loan and grant amounts will be based on your individual circumstances.
You are eligible to apply for full-time or part-time student aid in Saskatchewan if:
