FINANCE ADMINISTRATION & EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH
Both the provinces and federal government invest in Canada's attempt to cultivate an educated populace through aid programs benefiting students in need of some or all financial resources. The federal government, in addition to loan guarantees through the Canada Student Loans Program, works closely with provinces to provide student aid. In 1991-1992, the last year for which data was available, student aid totaled nearly $800 million combined from the federal government and province governments.
