Resident Loan Interest Relief Program

The Resident Loan Interest Relief Program (RLIRP) provides eligible medical school residents with financial assistance during a critical time of their professional development. Under this program, Ontario medical residents are not required to pay principal or interest on government students loans granted from any Canadian jurisdiction. Participating residents agree to provide physician services in Ontario for five years following completion of their medical residency.

HealthForceOntario is the government’s strategy to ensure that Ontario has the right supply and mix of appropriately educated health care providers where and when they are needed – now and into the future. The RLIRP is evidence of this commitment.
