Important Information


Canada-Manitoba Integration Project

The Manitoba government is currently in the process of integrating some of the administration of the Manitoba Student Aid (MSA) program with the Canada Student Financial Assistance (CSFA) program. This means that the loan disbursement and repayment of Manitoba student loans will be managed by the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC). Note that existing loans in repayment will be managed by MSA until July 1, 2023, and students will continue to submit new student loan applications, requests for reassessments and appeals for funding to MSA as that part of the MSA program is not changing.
