Statistics Canada's National Graduates Survey released in the spring of 2004 found that 45 per cent of bachelor's degree grads left school owing money to government student loan programs. They owed an average of $19,500.

For those who also owed money to non-government sources (like credit card issuers), the average owed ballooned to $32,200.

That's your nice thought for the day.
