Canada Student Loan Borrowers in British Columbia and Ontario:
Are you affected by the wildfires and need help making your loan payments? Contact the government at 1-888-815-4514 to fast-track your application for the Repayment Assistance Plan.
The Repayment Assistance Plan (RAP) and the Repayment Assistance Plan for Borrowers with a Permanent Disability (RAP-PD) makes it easier for you to manage your student loan debt by reducing your monthly payment.
Your monthly student loan payments would either be reduced or you would not have to make any payments, depending on your financial situation. If you have a permanent disability, it could also depend on your permanent disability-related expenses, which include allowable uninsured medical expenses, special care and other expenses directly related to your permanent disability.
Enrolment is not automatic and you must re-apply for this plan every six months.
Note: If your loans were issued to you by Prince Edward Island or Manitoba, you must apply directly to your province for repayment assistance for your provincial loan. Contact your provincial student financial assistance office to find out more.
