Emergency Assistance

Please see COVID 19 Emergency Assistance if you need emergency assistance


If you are facing unexpected financial distress or you've had an unexpected major change in your finances, NLC may be able to offer you emergency funding.

A Financial Aid Officer can help you assess your financial situation and advise about what your options are and how to apply for emergency assistance. 

Contact us at finaid@nlc.bc.ca or call 1-866-463-6652 and ask to speak with Financial Aid Officer.

Emergency bursaries and grocery cards
If you have a sudden and unexpected financial emergency and haven't been able to access funding through other sources, you may  be eligible for an emergency bursary and/or a grocery card

This funding can help cover necessities such as rent, food, and medical fees to provide short-term relief in an urgent situation.

Indigenous Emergency Assistance
The BC government has created the Indigenous Emergency Assistance Fund as an additional support for Indigenous students who are facing financial barriers. 

Please contact an Indigenous Student Navigator for more information.
