Hi,

Are newly landed immigrants eligible for grant and loan for studies?

Regards

Hello Faisal,

Thank you for sharing your question with us.

You can find some detailed information in our Settlement.Org Who is eligible for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)? article.

Here is an excerpt,

You must also be a resident of Ontario. You must meet 1 of the following criteria to meet OSAP's Ontario residency requirements:

-You have always resided in Ontario OR Ontario is the last province you resided in for 12 consecutive months without being a full-time post-secondary student;


If you do not meet OSAP's Ontario residency requirements you may still be eligible. You may have to provide a detailed explanation in your History of Canadian Residency form and submit the required documents that support your residency.



I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
