GPA or Average Final Grade in Post Secondary Institutions in Canada

I have a student who is looking for graduation by sex, by type of PS institution and GPA/Average final grade for Canada.

I’ve suggested she look at the National Graduate Survey but PSIS may be more appropriate however it doesn’t have any grading characteristics (GPA/average grade) in the public tables. Is it possible to access this information?

Subject matter has informed us that unfortunately, PSIS contains no data related to grades or rankings and NGS has only one variable related to ranking in graduating class (top 50-25%, top 25-10%, top 10%) and nothing regarding grades. I was able to identify this variable and find it on Nesstar Webview: Variable PR_Q05: Academic ranking.
