Helping your son or daughter choose a career and map out an educational pathway is a major accomplishment. Paying for that education is another monumental task. While most Canadian parents hope their children will pursue post-secondary studies, less than half of parents have money set aside. Those with savings find they are substantially short of the total average cost of attending college or university.* Are you prepared? Take some time to count your resources and to calculate the cost of a post-secondary education.
