Summary
The study reported here is intended to increase understanding of the impact of financial assistance on the behaviour of students, especially as it relates to unmet need. The research is based on the student financial assistance data from eight participating provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador. These provinces agreed to participate after a feasibility study was conducted that identified what student financial data each province could provide
