Canada Student Loan Forgiveness

Educational Assistance for Nurses (RNs and RPNs) in Under-Served Rural or Remote Communities

Many rural and remote communities in Canada lack the primary health care they need. As of April 2013, the Government of Canada started offering Canada Student Loan Forgiveness to eligible family doctors, residents in family medicine, nurse practitioners, and nurses who work in these areas. 

Loan forgiveness can be applied to outstanding Canada Student Loan balances and only apply to the federal portion of the loan. 

Nurses could receive up to $20,000 in Canada Student Loan forgiveness over a maximum of five years ($4,000 per year). 

For more information, eligibility criteria and how to apply, please refer to our Canada Student Loan Forgiveness document.
