The Government of Manitoba has made regulatory changes to streamline student loan processes and enhance accessibility for students. During the first phase of the changes, new borrowers will have an integrated provincial and federal loan, which will reduce the number of loans they need to manage. Existing borrowers will have their loans integrated when the second phase is implemented in April 2023. Other changes include enhanced disability provisions for students and a removal of a restriction that limits funding to one diploma, certificate, or degree. “These changes will make it easier for students to manage their student loans as they access the education and training opportunities needed to build their careers and support Manitoba’s economic growth,” said MB Advanced Education Minister Jon Reyes.
