Borrowers with a severe permanent disability who are unable to repay their Canada Student Loans may be eligible to have their debt cancelled through the Severe Permanent Disability Benefit.

You have to apply and qualify for this benefit. Receipt of the benefit is not automatic or guaranteed. Also, once you have received this benefit, you would not be eligible to receive any additional Canada Student Grants or Canada Student Loans.

Note: The Repayment Assistance Plan for Borrowers with a Permanent Disability is also available to Student Loan borrowers who have a permanent disability.
