Canadians are clear that private universities will increase the financial burden on students and families. In a poll conducted in January 2001 by EKOS Research, 73 per cent of respondents indicated that costs would rise, more than half saying increase a lot.

The largest group (39 per cent) also believe private universities will increase the costs to governments, with 30 per cent indicating costs will stay about the same and 29 per cent indicating that government spending for post-secondary education will fall.
