What's Involved?

To apply for a bursary, families are required to complete a Financial Aid for Canadian Students (FACS) application through Apple Financial Services, an independent third party.

The family must provide, in confidence, information on family assets, liabilities, income, expenses and other relevant financial information.

Apple Financial will review the information and make a recommendation to the School. The School’s Financial Assistance Committee reviews the recommendation and determines the amount of bursary.

Families must apply for a bursary on an annual basis in order to demonstrate continued financial need. In order for a bursary to be renewed, the student must contribute as an active and positive member of the school community.

Unfortunately, not all requests for assistance can be accommodated and recommendations by Apple Financial are not a guarantee of a bursary. A family must be prepared to invest in their child’s education to a significant level.

For more information on our General Bursary Program please contact David Huckvale, Director of Admission and Post-Secondary Counselling, at 905.833.1972.

Process to Apply for Financial Assistance

The complete process to apply for financial assistance is as follows:

  1. Click to find the online FACS Application Form. To download the FACS Application Instructions, look in the 'Downloads' channel located on the right hand side of this page.

  2. Complete the online FACS application and pay the fee of $130.00 to Apple Financial. 

  3. Apple Financial analyzes the information on a completely confidential basis and recommends a bursary amount to the School.

  4. The decision to award financial aid is made by the School's Financial Assistance Committee. The amount will be based on the FACS recommendation, plus any other relevant factors. You will be informed of the decision, by letter.
We encourage you to leave yourself adequate time, and if you need help completing the application online, please contact Apple Financial directly at 1-866-437-7795 or www.applefinancialservices.ca

We understand that while the benefits are exceptional, it is a significant financial investment to join our community. As a result, and thanks to the generosity of our donors, funds are available to help make a CDS experience a reality for families who may need some financial assistance. We hope that as part of researching and applying to our school you will connect with us and explore these opportunities.

It should be noted that applicants for financial aid must go through the normal admission process and meet all requirements to be offered admission. Space is subject to availability. Financial aid is subject to assessment and availability of funds. For more information on our Bursary and Scholarship Program, please contact the Director of Admission and Post-Secondary Counselling, David Huckvale or by calling (905) 833-1972.

Land Acknowledgment

The Country Day School wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. Our nearest Indigenous Nations are now the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Chippewas of Georgina Island. The Dish with One Spoon Wampum covenant is often cited as an example of the shared responsibility for caring for these lands among the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples who would call these their traditional territories. CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection to this land can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for the land and waters for future generations.
