  • Continuing education: Every day, the job market becomes more competitive. Continuing education can help you keep up with the latest technologies, knowledge and skills needed to help you keep your job, get a new job or change careers.
  • Get your high school diploma: Having a high school diploma gives you greater job options and helps you earn more money. There are several options to choose from when looking at getting your high school diploma.

Canada Student Loans Program

  • Apply for student loans: Government student loans are a great way to help you pay for your post-secondary education at a designated college, university or other post-secondary institution.

Repaying your student loan

Canada Student Grants

  • Student grants: Grants, bursaries and scholarships help you pay for your post-secondary education by giving you money that does not need to be paid back. They can be offered through governments, schools or private organizations.

Education savings

  • Saving for your child’s education: Many parents wonder how much to save for their child's education. They also wonder how soon they should start. The answer is simple: Save early, earn more. Even small savings each year will translate into substantial savings later.
