Speaking from personal experience here, I graduated last year from a 4 year (5 year if you include co-op/internship) program with a Bachelor of Mathematics, and excluding housing costs, I was paying under $3,500 per term. Through 8 school terms that comes out to about $28,000 for my degree.

Since I can still log in and check my finance information I decided to pull the exact numbers. Strictly for tuition, over my time in university it cost me $19,283. Adding in all the non-housing related incidentals (such as various student fees, services fees and other junk like that), the total is $27,490, and if you include the terms I was paying for on-campus residence, the total I paid the school was $38,276.

Strictly from a tuition standpoint, the cost per term was as follows

$2,192.00
$2,280.00
$2,371.00
$2,371.00
$2,466.00
$550.00 (I was taking one course through distance education while on co-op)
$2,565.00
$2,296.00 (only took four courses this term)
