Everyone wants to increase the 0's in their bank account without investing time and money on education. School is crazy expensive! Ontario currently has the highest tuition fees, approximately costing an average of $6,000 per year, ( for under-grad and post-grad programs) according to Stats Canada. That equals to approximately 24 k during 4 years just for school fees or many even more.
Master programs are generally the most expensive, on average costing individuals $42,000. Let's be honest, not everyone can afford these prices and nobody wants to be 100k in debt from loans.
