Vancouver is known for being an expensive city, and when you’re a student, it can seem next to impossible to survive here. That might explain why SFU ranks among the top schools in Canada for having high populations of sugar babies.

Sugar babies are primarily young people who seek relationships with wealthier (and often older) people who provide them with a monthly allowance. Seeking Arrangement, a website designed to connect people who are looking for sugar daddies or babies, ranked SFU as the 10th most popular school for sugar baby growth in Canada.

In total, 85 new users signed up for the site in 2016, which was enough to secure it a spot in the top 10. It’s the University of Alberta, however, that can claim top spot.

According to SeekingArrangement.com, more than 1 million new users registered for their website in 2016, that’s a year-on-year increase of more than 11%. The site also revealed that 8.5% of its users seeking sugar daddies to fund their education are from Canada.

“Rising costs make the traditional path to education difficult, so students are looking for new ways to pursue a degree while maintaining their quality of life,” SeekingArrangement states.

“While college completion rates in Canada rank among the best in the world, it also ranks fifth as the most expensive country for students. Seeking a wealthy benefactor is a great way to offset this cost.”
