Dental Association Shows Problem with High Tuition in Professional Schools

Figures released by Statistics Canada today show that tuition fees in dentistry remain the highest of all professional programs and continue to rise at higher rates than other programs. The Canadian Dental Association believes that chronic under-funding of Canadian universities is to blame, leaving university leadership with no choice but to hike tuition fees to cover costs.

Not a new problem, but this just shows that the problem is getting worse with underfunding of post-secondary schools.

Thanks to Derek Blackadder of CUPE and LabourStart for this lead
