This paper explores student inter-provincial migration in Canada. Particularly, it looks at how student "comfort levels" vis-a-vis re-location, provincial size, economic factors and even social considerations such as "warmth" and language all shape where students will go when they pursue a post-secondary education. The paper reveals that while a myriad of factors come into play when students determine where they will go for an education, certain provinces tend to attract (or not attract) students for certain economic and social reasons that cannot be ignored.

From the Paper:

"To close, the last several pages have explored what determines the robustness and direction of inter-provincial migration within Canada among students. While a host of reasons will guide the decision-making processes for students, it is hard to avoid the finding that healthy regional economies, an absence of cultural or linguistic barriers, and relative geographic isolation all precipitate inward and outward migration trends. Ultimately, the more a province can cultivate an image of itself as being a place of opportunity and of relatively few non-school barriers to learning, the greater its chances of recruitment success will be."
