Canadian universites attracting more U.S. students

January 7, 2009

Universities in Canada report mounting interest this fall among American high school seniors, with a recently stronger U.S. dollar making already low tuition costs even more of a bargain for Americans.

Since 2001, the number of American attending college in Canada has risen by 50 percent to about 9,000, according to Canadian Embassy in Washington.
