**Offering a special Worker Recovery Scholarship for students who lost their job due to COVID-19. Click for scholarship details for the Toronto and Cambridge campuses.**

You may qualify for free training if you have been on Employment Insurance in the last 3 years. Industry partners may subsidize up to 80% of your training through Merit Ontario and CLAC Union Scholarships.

Your education is one of the most important investments you’ll make in your lifetime, and we realize that you may need assistance in paying for tuition. Our Educational Funding department will help you to navigate through the different funding options that may be available to you.

Financial assistance may be available for those who qualify.


Self-funding all, or part of your education, is one of the best ways to invest in your future. Perhaps you’ve set aside money over the years to invest in an education (RRSP, RESP), or you’re planning to work while in school. Your family and relatives can also be a source of financial support to consider. Arrangements may be made with our Educational Funding department for full, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly payment of your tuition education.

Student Loans

Student Line of Credit

A Student Line of Credit gives you access to funds that you can use to pay for tuition and other expenses. With most student line of credit you only have to apply once, and the money is there for you to borrow as you need it. And, in most cases there are no annual or monthly fees – you pay interest only on what you borrow.

There are many Student Line of Credit programs offering a variety of specially designed programs.

  • Bank of Montreal – BMO Student Line of Credit.
  • TD Canada – Trust Student Line of Credit.
  • RBC Royal Bank – Royal Line of Credit for Student.
  • Scotiabank – ScotiaLine Personal Line of Credit for Students.
  • CIBC – Education Line of Credit.
