It is quite clear. Student-athletes can only be provided a maximum of tuition and required fees (such as student union, technology fees, etc.) as an Athletic Financial Award (AFA), the CIS version of a sports scholarship.

Teams or schools currently cannot pay for anything else. Not cars. Not apartments. Not houses. Not residence rooms. Not even meal plans (although of course the team can cover travel meals and food at the rink).

Now if a hockey player already has his tuition covered by a scholarship he earned while playing Major Junior, he can take his AFA money and buy textbooks or pay rent or car payments or whatever else he needs or wants to, but that individual AFA money is capped at the cost of his annual tuition plus required fees.
