The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on college finances for the 2020/2021 fiscal year

In 2020/2021, the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, Canadian colleges reported a record decrease of $993.0 million in revenue (in constant 2020/2021 inflation-adjusted dollars), compared with the previous fiscal year. It was the largest loss reported since Statistics Canada started collecting data on college finances in 2001/2002 and was mainly due to a drop in revenues from fees and ancillary services.
