Ontario Universities--2000. Resource Document.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
This edition of the annual "Resource Document" provides a comprehensive review of statistics and trends relevant to Ontario, Canada, universities across a range of policy areas. The review is particularly important this year because Ontario is on the verge of experiencing the greatest increase in demand for university opportunities in 30 years. Predictions indicate that enrollment in Ontario is likely to rise by as much as 90,000 students, or 40% within the next 10 years. Provincial operating grants to Ontario universities were $1,722 million Canadian in 2000-2001. In constant dollar amounts, however, these grants were 24.6% lower than in 1992-1993. Tuition fee revenue has increased dramatically since 1987-1988 but federal government support of Ontario postsecondary education has declined 3.6% in constant dollar terms between 1987-1988 and 1999-2000. Ontario universities rank ninth of the 10 provinces in terms of the percentage of operating income that comes from provincial grants. The report contains these sections: (1) "Grants and Revenue: The Ontario Picture"; (2) "Grants and Revenue: Jurisdictional Comparisons"; (3) "Comparisons with Other Sectors"; (4) "Research"; (5) "Tuition Fees"; (6) "Student Financial Assistance"; (7) "University Infrastructure"; (8) "Faculty and Staff"; and (9) "Education and Employment." Eight appendixes contain information on the methodology for estimating enrollment, university expenses and incomes, and some details of provincial operating grants for Ontario universities. (Contains 43 tables and 40 figures.) (SLD)
