Deadlines vary from program to program but remain consistent from year-to-year, with applications usually due on the 1st or 15th of a particular month. Applications must be submitted or postmarked by the deadline date. (Note: the Regina and Saskatoon offices are open Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.)
If the deadline falls on a weekend or statutory holiday, the deadline is moved to the next working day.
