Federal Student Loan Forgiveness Program

The Government of Canada offers Canada Student Loan forgiveness to eligible NPs,
RNs and RPNs who work in under-served rural or remote communities that lack the
primary health care they need.

Prince Edward County qualifies as an under-served rural community.

If you are a nurse or nurse practitioner and you qualify, you could receive up to
$20,000 in Canada Student Loan forgiveness over a maximum of five years ($4,000 per year).
