The Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation (CMSF) was a private, independent organization created by an act of the Canadian Parliament in 1998 for a 10-year period, with the goal of improving access to post-secondary education for Canadians from all backgrounds. Each year, CMSF distributed hundreds of millions of dollars in financial aid to students across Canada. CMSF also provided research on the impact of its programs and on barriers to postsecondary access and success. In 2010, CMSF was dissolved by Parliament. In order to preserve and continue to disseminate the publications from its 10 years of research, all CMSF publications are now available through the online Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation Library.
