What is the living cost?


The cost of living in Canada is moderate, compared with other countries. Some prices of typical goods and services are as follows (in US dollars):

  • One month’s lodging, one-bedroom apartment: $400
  • Bus fare, one way: $1.50
  • Local telephone call: $0.25
  • Modest restaurant meal: lunch $7/dinner $14

Canadian winters are chilly, an adequate warm clothing budget is essential. Budget around $250 – $350 US for proper winter wardrobe.
You will need approximately $12,000 US ($18,840 Cdn or 13,000 Euro) to cover your expenses for an academic year. This includes your tuition and living expenses but not your air-fare. Please remember that this figure is an average only. Actual expenses may vary depending on the region of the country you live in, the tuition fees at the university you attend and your field of specialisation.
