A useful line of credit
Debt is generally inevitable when you are a student. You have to pay substantial tuition fees, as well as various housing and living expenses. The longer your studies, as in medicine, pharmacy and dentistry, the higher the level of debt you may incur. Properly used, a line of credit can ease the financial stress of students and residents, enabling them to focus more on acquiring knowledge and skills.
A responsible approach
Credit has its limits and it is sometimes hard to resist temptation. To better equip you, the Financial offers a unique service to holders of the BRIO line of credit.

2 Subject to credit approval by National Bank. Certain conditions apply. A guarantor (surety) who meets National Bank’s criteria may be required. The annual amount is based on your personal budgetary requirements.
3 The mandatory life insurance is free. The cost of the life insurance premium will be paid entirely by Professionals’ Financial until the end of clerkship for medical students and until the end of full-time studies for dentistry and pharmacy students, after which the student may decide to cancel the coverage or maintain it and assume the cost. The coverage amount is $100,000 for a medical student and $80,000 for a dentistry student or a pharmacy student, but the student is free to increase this coverage during their studies by paying an additional premium. .
4 The line of credit bears interest as of the date it is used. The minimum monthly payment is the monthly interest amount, which may be deferred (added to the principal of the line of credit) for up to 12 months following the end of full-time studies. Prime rate means the annual variable interest rate published by National Bank from time to time and used to establish the interest rate on Canadian dollar demand loans granted by National Bank.
