The major budget eater will be accommodation

Take for the benefit of Om Internationals student centric approach for Off-campus accommodation, which offers you the flexibility to choose from many options like renting an apartment or studio independently, sharing a house or going for home stays with local families.

Coming to a city-wise division of living costs, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec have some excellent universities, and accommodation in these cities would cost you about CAD 1000 a month.

Among the more costly cities are Calgary and Vancouver, where accommodation costs can go up to CAD 1500 a month, living individually. You can always share an apartment with another student to save significantly.

Plus if you are a young undergraduate student, you can expect a tremendous reduction in your monthly bills. This is because most Canadian provinces require that students under the age of 18, or 19 in some provinces, reside in a home stay with a host family. This option costs you about CAD 600-800 a month and in most cases, your host family will provide you with meals, leading to a further reduction in expenses.
