Summary 
This report provides a description of the PBO model and an estimate of the revenues and expenses associated with the direct loans regime of Canada Student Loans Program (CSLP). The PBO model also allows for the estimation of the financial cost of election campaign proposals that impact the eligibility and design of CSLP.

The assumptions and long-term outlooks used in the PBO model are consistent with those in the annual reports on CSLP from the Office of the Chief Actuary (OCA).

For transparency and replication, the model takes advantage of publicly available annual reports of the OCA.
