Student Financial Aid

Managing day to day finances properly takes time, thought, and planning. If you are a student, the costs of education can feel particularly overwhelming. But with proper financial planning, students are able to determine how much money they’ll need for tuition, text books, class supplies, as well as monthly expenditures such as rent and food. Financial aid is available to students in Canada in various forms, including student loans, grants, and scholarships. Financial experts are available to help offer students guidance and information on how to plan for and pay for post-secondary education. Do you have questions about your own, or your child’s current financial situation or education debt-load? Would you like to speak with a financial expert for yourself, a friend or loved one? Are you looking for resources within your community to help you manage your overall financial picture? Kinjunxion is here to help with sources of support and information.
