Right now, post-secondary students across Ontario are finishing up their studies for the year and heading off to summer jobs -- if they have been lucky enough to land one.
New research from the CCPA demonstrates just how difficult it is to save up for tuition fees every year.
Ontario's students face the highest average tuition in Canada, paying on average $7,259/year in tuition. Saskatchewan is next in line at $6,394. Newfoundland and Labrador has the lowest average tuition fees at $2,644.
Not only is Ontario tuition the highest in the country, students across the country, Ontario included, must work far longer to pay tuition than students did in the past.
