What about scholarships, bursaries, etc? Are these available for middle to lower income families?
Scholarships are based on academic and other achievements. Bursaries are available to middle and lower income families on a case by case basis. Many schools offer bursaries so that they can attract the right students for their school, without restricting it to income. As a great starting point, we have a list of schools from across Canada that offer bursaries and financial aid. You might also want to check out Children First if you are in Alberta and Ontario, as they offer tuition assistance grants to low income families.
