financial assistance for youth

Does anyone have any insight on how to get financial assistance for a 21 yr. old attending college? We don't feel comfortable with a loan at the moment, just wondering if there is any gov't programs out there for aid in rent & supplies, that is not taxed.

mb student loan

Government student loans may be your best option.. they are not considered taxable income, and no interest accrued and no payments while you're still in school. Otherwise, apply for scholarships and bursaries. Working part time is of course, taxable income, as are EI payments, but if you're just in school you should have low enough income and enough deductions to not really pay any tax. There aren't any government programs that I'm aware of that will pay you to go to university and not require you to pay it back at some point.

try this website here

It appears to be different than the regular Student Loan service but I think this might be what you're looking for.

If you are going thru the apprenticeship program (working a year then few weeks in school each year) you can get the Canada Apprentice Loan each year if you require it. And you can get EI for Apprentices. And the first day of class you sign papers and can get some money for living/transportation etc.. although they have cut back on that but somethings better than nothing!

Just an opinion

Have you started school yet? Not sure if this is still a thing or not but Employment Manitoba may pay upto 75% of tuition, books and provide financial assistance if you qualify for EI. It is only for upto 2 year courses. I believe it has to be done before you start school though. This is how I paid for my schooling 10 years ago.

Do you have any websites or links I could do some research on.

If you are an apprentice or trying to become one, I highly suggest you go to the provincial building on 9th street and speak to someone there. If I am correct the apprenticeship area is on the main floor. Someone there should, in theory, be able to point you in the right direction and answer your questions.
