When your kids are young, it seems like postsecondary education is in the far-away future. But college and university are more important than ever, if we want our children to be successful. And yet the cost of a post-secondary education keeps growing. In 2016/2017, the average annual under-graduate university tuition in Canada for a full-time student is expected to be $7,437, compared to $4,025 in 2003/2004. Tuition and related fees are not the whole story. They represent only about one-third of the expenses that students face each year. Add in accommodation, food, transportation, books, computers, leisure, and the cost of a four-year postsecondary education could add up to more than $80,000. But there is way to meet these rising costs. By setting aside education funds for your children now, you can help them earn a university or college degree and avoid the crippling debt many students are incurring.
