Canada Student Grant for Part-Time Students with Dependants
The Canada Student Grant for Part-Time Students with Dependants is available to low-income students with dependants while they are enrolled in a part-time program at a designated post-secondary institution.
Note: This Grant is not available to students from the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Quebec as these provinces and territories operate their own student financial assistance programs.
You are eligible if:
- you are enrolled in a part-time degree, diploma, or certificate program (at least 12 weeks long within a period of 15 weeks in a row) at a designated post-secondary institution;
- you have a dependant who will be under 12 years of age at the start of the study period (or a dependant 12 years of age or older with a permanent disability);
- you apply and qualify for part-time student financial assistance;
- the province or territory where you have most recently lived for at least 12 months in a row assesses that you have enough financial need;
- you and your spouse or common-law partner have a low family income as defined by the Canada Student Loans Program.
Note: As of August 1, 2018, access to grants for students with dependants will be expanded.
