Hello and THANK YOU for contacting JUST ANSWER. My goal is to help YOU make YOUR life, a little...LESS TAXING.

In brief, schools that participate in the FFEL program (Direct Loan Program) would allow students to attend under a federal student loan. You would need to find out if the school in Canada participates in the FFEL program. Refer to the following document for more detailed info:

I have not been asble to locate any specific information relating to which schools in Canada, if any participate in this program.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance ro you regarding this matter.

Thank you again for using JUST ANSWER.
