described in section 33(a), forthwith after that event occurs, or

               (ii) with respect to any other claims,

                         (A)  where a consolidation of guaranteed
loans agreement or a consolidation of riskshared and guaranteed loans
agreement has been entered into, after that agreement has been in default
for 3 months, or

                         (B)  if no such agreement has been entered
into, within 9 months of the student borrower's ceasing to be a full-time
student,

     and

     (f)  may, if it is a non-participating credit institution, claim the
following amounts:

               (i)  the unpaid principal amount of the loan;

               (ii) if the borrower became bankrupt or insolvent, the
uncollected interest on the loan calculated to the date of the borrower's
bankruptcy or insolvency;

               (iii)      if subclause (ii) does not apply, the uncollected
interest on the loan accruing within the period commencing on the date of
the default and ending on the earlier of the date that is 180 days after
that date and the 21st day following the date on which the claim by the
institution was approved by the Minister;

               (iv) fees, disbursements, expenses and other incidental
collection costs, but not legal costs.

(2)  Notwithstanding subsection (1)(e)(ii)(A), if the credit institution
considers that the circumstances are exceptional, it may make the claim at
any time.


Guaranteed loans - when they become due
33   The whole amount of the principal and interest on a guaranteed loan
becomes due immediately if the borrower

     (a)  dies, becomes insolvent or files for bankruptcy,

     (b)  does not sign a consolidation of guaranteed loans agreement or
a consolidation of riskshared and guaranteed loans agreement within 6
months after ceasing to be a full-time student, or

     (c)  fails to make an instalment payment for more than 30 days after
the instalment's due date under the borrower's consolidation of guaranteed
loans agreement or consolidation of riskshared and guaranteed loans
agreement, unless that date falls within a period of relief granted under
section 31.


Instalments under consolidation agreement
34(1)  Instalments under a consolidation of guaranteed loans agreement are
to be made by the student in consecutive equal monthly payments with the
final instalment being no greater than the previous ones.

(2)  Each instalment payment must be appropriated first against interest
outstanding to the date of payment and then to the outstanding principal.


Repayment under consolidation agreement
35   The term for repayment under a consolidation of guaranteed loans
agreement is the term agreed between the loan holder and the student, but
if the student wishes to repay the whole or any part of the principal under
the agreement at any time before the expiration of that term, the loan
holder must accept the repayment without penalty.


Rate of interest under consolidation agreement
36(1)  The rate of interest payable under a consolidation of guaranteed
loans agreement by the student to a non-participating credit institution
must not exceed the total of 1% plus the base rate determined under
subsection (2) and in effect on the date the agreement was made.

(2)  The base rate in effect on the date the agreement was made is the base
rate as fixed by the Minister of Finance of the Government of Canada, in
respect of Canada Student Loans, for the loan year in which that date
occurs and calculated immediately before the beginning of that loan year
(being the simple arithmetic mean of the Wednesday closing mid-market
yields for the 6 months preceding the beginning of that loan year as
computed from the yields published by the Bank of Canada on all Government
of Canada bonds payable in Canadian currency and due to mature in 5 to 10
years, rounded to the nearest 1/8 of 1%).

(3)  If 6 months have passed since a student borrower under a guaranteed
loan ceased to be a full-time student and the borrower has not entered into
a consolidation of guaranteed loans agreement or a consolidation of
riskshared and guaranteed loans agreement, the rate of interest payable
from the expiry of the interest free period by the borrower to the credit
institution is that institution's prime rate plus 2.5% until such an
agreement is entered into.


Limit on Government's liability under guarantee
37   The Government's liability to a non-participating credit institution
under a guarantee under the Act does not apply to amounts that are liable
to be paid by the student under a consolidation of guaranteed loans
agreement after the length of time, commencing from the date when that
person ceased to be a full-time student, that is the aggregate of 10 years
plus any periods of relief granted under section 31.


     Riskshared Loans

Duties of participating credit institutions
38   A participating credit institution that makes or has made a riskshared
loan

     (a)  must use the forms approved by the Minister for transferring or
consolidating such loans,

     (b)  shall not demand that the student pay interest or principal
during an interest free period if the requirements of section 30(1)(b) and
(c) have been met,

     (c)  shall immediately report to the Minister any fraud or false
statement by the student that it discovers and any measures taken as a
result of the discovery, and

180 days following the date of the default.
