Regional Transfer Arrangement
The Regional Transfer Arrangement is an arrangement whereby each of the three Maritime Provinces provides funding in respect to any of its university students enrolled in programs in either of the other two provinces that are not offered in the student's home province. The purpose of the Regional Transfer Arrangement is to ensure accessibility of university programs for Maritime residents and to assist the provinces in attaining a more effective utilization and allocation of resources. The transfer of funds in any given fiscal year is based on the enrolments of Maritime residents in these regional programs two years earlier, the latest year for which complete enrolment data are available at the time budgets are prepared. It should be noted that the transfers between the provinces are made on a net basis, and do not represent transfers of funds to the institutions themselves.
