Canada-Manitoba Integration Project

The Manitoba government is currently in the process of integrating the administration of the Manitoba Student Aid (MSA) program with the Canada Student Financial Assistance Program (CSFA Program). This means that Manitoba student loans will be managed by the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC). The planned changes to the administration of student loans will be effective July 4, 2022. Note that existing loans will be managed by MSA until April 2023.

2022/2023 Manitoba Student Aid Application

Due to ongoing consultation on proposed changes to the Student Aid Regulation, the 2022/2023 Manitoba Student Aid application will not be available until early July. These changes will support the integration of federal and provincial loan programs to make it easier for students to manage their loans.
