A global 'sugar daddy' dating site has compiled its annual report of the Fastest Growing Sugar Baby Schools and a B.C. university made the top 20 in Canada.
According to SeekingArrangment, the world's largest 'sugar dating' site, there are now over 340,000 sugar baby students across Canada. With average rent increasing in some cities to nearly $2,600 in 2019, the company argues that it makes sense that students are finding this form of relationship beneficial.
“Canadian students find themselves struggling to provide adequate shelter while at university,” says Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement. “Sugar Daddies mentor these students on how to manage their finances and elevate their typical uni lifestyle.”
The University of Toronto had the most sugar babies with a whopping 1,158 members online. Western University came second, with 777 students enrolled on the site. In third, the University of Alberta had 749 sugar babies signed up. In fourth, Ryerson University had 591 students enrolled, while Wilfrid Laurier University and York University each had 459 to tie for fifth.
McGill University rounded out the top sugar baby schools placing tenth.
Simon Fraser University was the lone B.C. school to make the list, placing seventeenth.
