What this benefit offers

If you have a severe permanent disability that prevents you from working in a gainful way for the rest of your life, you may be able to have your student loans cancelled through the Severe Permanent Disability Benefit.

You have to apply for the Severe Permanent Disability Benefit; receipt of the benefit is not automatic. Once you have received this benefit, you would not be eligible to receive any additional Canada Student Loans or Canada Student Grants.

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