Canada Student Loan forgiveness for family doctors and nurses - Apply


Once you have completed a year of service in an under-served rural or remote community, you have 90 days to apply for loan forgiveness.

Applications for Canada Student Loan forgiveness for Family Doctors and Nurses practicing in under-served rural or remote communities are now available online.

Paper versions are also available through the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC).

Note: To maintain your eligibility, you must re-apply every year. A reminder letter will be sent to you each year as long as the Canada Student Financial Assistance Program records indicate that you may be eligible.

Once your application for loan forgiveness has been approved, your Canada Student Loan balance will be reduced. Your monthly payments will also be reduced unless you opt out on your application form. You can request changes to your monthly payments at any time by contacting the NSLSC: Loan repayment options - NSLSC.
