The resourceful student seeking financial assistance has a number of avenues to explore. Here are some possible sources of student assistance however we encourage you to call the Financial Aid Department to discuss all your options.

Repaying Your Government Loan:

The NSLSC has created the following webinars to assist you with learning about, and repaying your loan: 



Since many of AIM Academy's students and graduates benefit from government loans, grants, and bursaries, AIM Academy strongly reminds everyone that they have a responsibility to repay their loans and meet their commitments. The viability of loan programs in many provinces, states, and countries rests upon the appreciation that everyone gains when financial commitments are honoured.

Out of province students:

If you are not a resident of Ontario, inquire about the student assistance program in your home province.
