CST Graduate Scholarship Award winner Sam Tanenbaum

As a young child, Sam Tanenbaum had nearly everyone fooled.

“When I was in grade two, I had the vocabulary of someone who was in grade 10.  I could use words, speak and tell you rhymes and ‘read’ you books - but I wasn’t actually reading,” Sam explained.

"I have a non-verbal learning disability and I’m proud to say I am Dyslexic." 

The rising costs of university tuition and fees

We hear it all the time.  “Tuition is expensive.”

The numbers prove it.  Statistics Canada has found in the past 10 years, the average university tuition has jumped from $4347 to $6373 - an increase of 46%!

That’s not the only post-secondary fee that’s on the rise.

Once upon a time, university was thought to be the ultimate destination in the pursuit of post-secondary education. 

That was then.  This is now.  Times have definitely changed.

These days, students have many options for higher learning.  There are more programs and schools available and over the years, Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs) have changed and have become more flexible to reflect that.
