With somewhat less media coverage than previous years, Statistics Canada has released its tuition fee estimates for 2019/20. And for the first time since I can remember, the national average for undergraduate tuition fees actually declined from the previous year.
Good news, right?
Well, not so fast. Turns out that all provinces except two (Alberta and Ontario) increased average tuition fees for undergraduate students.
