To help give you an understanding of the kinds of grants medical students can receive, AISM provides some useful information.

 Who obtains a grant? #

A government grant depends on which province or territory you are from as each one has its own student loan and grant service, coordinated with the Government of Canada. Below we have provided some examples showing how different areas operate.

Canada Student Grants #

The Canada Student Grant is aimed at Low-Income Families whose parents don’t earn enough to support them through their studies abroad.

 This grant provides USD 250 a month for the duration of your studies But please note that it is not available to students from Northwest Territories, Nunavut or Quebec, as these provinces and territories have their own student financial aid available. Information can be found here here.
