External financial support

Quebec government loans

The Quebec Government Student Loans and Bursaries Program (Aide financière aux études or AFE) gives interest-free loans based on need, not academic performance, for the duration of full-time studies. It also gives gifts of money, called bursaries; to qualify, a student must have already been awarded the maximum loan. Students should apply as early as the end of May or a minimum of four to six weeks before the start of classes. The AFE’s assistance assessment simulator gives an approximate idea of how much of a loan they can expect.
