Find out if you qualify for the Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB)

CESB for Dental Students

In 2017, Prep Doctors was recognized by the Government of Canada as a certified educational institution. More recently, our institution was listed alongside private institutions allowing qualifying students to receive the Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB).

This status is important for Prep Doctors and its trainees and is born out of a lot of hard work by our team. To be clear, this benefit does not apply to every trainee – below you will find some of the eligibility criteria to help you determine if you can receive this benefit.

– You completed or expect to complete high school, or received, or expect to receive your high school equivalency in 2020, and have applied for a post-secondary educational program that starts before February 1, 2021
