Many Alberta residents use this website. So we wanted to write a Q + A to give full details about two replacement programs announced when the popular Alberta Loan Relief program got cancelled back in 2012.
These replacements were supposed to be a 'Completion Incentive Grant' and a 'Retention' grant intended to discourage grads from moving to other provinces.
UPDATE: Since this was written, Alberta has now ENDED Student Loan Relief. This article just remains as an archive.
NEW: See Replacements for Alberta Loan Relief.
Alberta Student Loan Relief has been announced as ending on July 31, 2012.
