Abstract

This study looks at the role of the Canada Student Loan Program (CSLP). While it is difficult to estimate the extent to which the CSLP has made it possible for low-income students to obtain a postsecondary education, the study addresses certain questions: How well are student loans targeted to lowincome youth? To what extent does the amount of the loan reflect the level of financial need? What are the consequences of taking parental income into account for students considered dependent on their parents?
