Most expensive Canadian universities
University is about more than getting an education. We factored in tuition, food and living costs to find the most expensive universities in Canada.
Canadians bristle when told the price of a post-secondary education in the U.S. My goodness, we think, how could someone ever pay $40,000 a year for a university degree?

With cellphone plans, room and board fees, and the average $400 a semester needed for textbooks, schools north of the border can still cut deep. So, with January's application deadline looming, MSN takes a look at the prices of eight of the most expensive general undergraduate degree programs in Canada.
