RE: New Job
I thought in Canada college was either free or close to it?

Not free. Average cost of tuition for one academic year in an Ontario college program: Diploma Programs - $2,400. Graduate Certificate Programs - $3,600. Bachelor's Degree Programs - $6,100.

RE: New Job
And then of course there's the cost of textbooks, student fees, living expenses if away from home.

But a new program offers grants covering tuition for full-time students with a family income of under $50,000, which is expected to cover ⅓ of students. I'm no expert - just what I gathered from an article I just googled.

RE: New Job
That is significantly less than college I went to, although I live in the US. Make sure he knows what he wants to do before starting a program. I ended up getting a degree in veterinary technology and never ended up using it. It would have been far more beneficial had I taken something in computer science or business management.

He wants to be a teaching assistant. He loves working with kids! He has a lot of experience as he is the oldest sibling of a large family.

That is so cool! That's a lot less than the colleges I'm looking at. Good for him.
