Can I Apply for OSAP as a Refugee?

One of the main sources of post-secondary financial assistance is OSAP – the Ontario Student Assistance Program.

In 2003, the Canadian law changed allowing convention refugee students and all protected persons in Canada, eligible to apply for Canadian Student Loans.

Protected persons and refugees are those who have been legally recognized by the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) and who have a Letter of Determination from the IRB or from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).
