Tuition hikes lowest in a decade

According to a Statistics Canada report, undergraduate students at Canadian universities can expect to pay 1.8 per cent more on average for tuition, about half the rate of growth in the previous academic year and the smallest increase in more than a decade.

Average tuition fees for undergraduate students for 2005-06 is $4,214, up from $4,140 last and almost triple the 1990-91 average of $1,464.

Since then, tuition has increased at an average annual rate of 7.3 per cent, faster than the rate of inflation, although 2000 saw the rate slow to an annual average of 4.1 per cent. Statistics Canada attributes the recent low increases to government decisions to regulate fees.
