The bursary draw is coming up!

We’re getting ready for the draw! It might take some time to make sure that everything is perfect before launching the pan-Canadian lottery.

Make sure you save your changes, and there will be no need to let us know that you have made changes or to print another Declaration, as your changes are automatically registered in your profile.

Is your application ready for the draw?

To be eligible for the bursary draw coming up in late March or early April, you not only have to apply on-line, you must submit your supporting documents to the coordinator of your home province/territory as well.

To make sure that your documents have been received and your name has been included in the draw, check your profile on-line. It should say: "Eligible for draw." If you sent in your documents recently, but your status has not yet been updated, wait a week or two and check again (your status can even be updated after the deadline).
