Most major banks in Canada offer lines of credit and other programs specifically for students.
RCC Institute of Technology participates in several bank-sponsored academic student loan programs for graduate and professional study, which are available to Canadian citizens and landed immigrants.
For any line of credit program, students typically must visit their local branch to apply.
