Hi All,

I just found this site. It is very informative. However, I was unable to locate recent information on people's experiences applying for RAP-PD.

Can anyone elaborate on their experiences applying for it?

I received a disability grant from OSAP every year of study. So, presumably they already have me 'on file' as disabled. Does this mean it would be straightforward?

The following link outlines the RAP-PD I am referring to:

It's a code for disabled persons perhaps.

Yes, PD refers to Permanent Disability. From my reading of the stuff online there are different debt-relief options available to those with disabilities.

While you can get a grant for school while disabled, loan forgiveness has recently been based on total disability.  You would have to check with your provincial program for loan forgiveness and their definition of the disabiilty for that specific purpose. Also, since you would have both a federal and provincial loan you would need to know the federal definition as well.

Disability used to mean a restricted ability to participate in the workforce, but they changed it I believe to totally unable to participate in the workforce.   Again you should check with the provincial and federal definitions...
