A Comparison of Provincial Contributions to Canadian Universities.
Giannelli, Anthony J.
Using the most current national data available, a study investigated the level on Ontario's contributions to its university system in relation to nine other Canadian provinces. The approach was to trace the student enrollment figures and provincial contributions to operating revenues from 1971-72 until 1973-74 in order to determine the levels of support on a per student basis. The results showed a dramatic decreasing position for Ontario in its funding on a per student basis when compared to the other provinces. In 1971-72 and 1972-73 Ontario's per student contributions were above the national average by $55 and $64, respectively, and ranked third in Canada, while in 1973-74 the contribution was $45 below the national average and the province ranked sixth in the nation. The preliminary data for 1974-75 indicate a continued deteriorating position for Ontario, falling even further behind the national average and having a lower rank order position. In 1973-74 Ontario would have had to contribute approximately $12.4 million in order to match the per student contribution average of the other provinces. The financial estimates for 1975-76 show that the gap between Ontario and the national average has grown larger. (Author/LBH)
