Would you be OK sending your kids to Canada for College?

As savings head south some head north for college.

  • You betcha! I would in a minute. My children have college degrees already but my grandchildren are already thinking ahead and their parents are worried about college costs. If they could afford a Canadian college, then why not?

  • Why not? A lot of Canadians send their kids here, so sure. I've learned that a college education, like most things, is what you make of it. What you put in is what you get out.

  • My kids can attend college where ever they want as long as it's a good college, not just going there to party!

  • I live in Canada so I would be very happy with it and I would be happy for my children when they are older to spend time in other countries. Our local University requires students in some courses to spend a semester or two at a college in the UK to gain a different perspective than they have here and from what I have heard it is very successful and popular. Of course, one of the attractions may be that it is near London which has a lot to offer besides studies!

  • A college age student is 18+ years of age, and would be legally should be able to make a decision as to where they want to continue their higher education. If the college has the program that they are interested in pursuing, it is a solid program (going to give them equal advantage when they are done), and they get accepted to the program, I don't see any reason why they shouldn't be allowed to attend.

    Whether or not the parents pay is moot. My children are young, but my husband and I agree that wherever our children get accepted to college, we'll figure out a way to pay/make it happen.

  • I went to McGill in Montreal as an American student and it was a tremendous experience and a great bargain.

  • Absolutely. I don't think that a person would have to stay in the states in order to receive a quality education.
