Costs of living
Canada is not a very expensive country to live in, especially economical when compared to the US or UK. That said, when you study in Canada you can easily work part time for $14-18/hour, up to max 20 hours a week. This figure roughly translates to $1100-1400 a month, which is easily sufficient for living in Canada. In our experience, with moderate expenditure one can live in Canada for $500-800 a month.
Location also matters when you calculate the costs of living in Canada, with larger cities like Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa having higher amounts of rent. Besides, the closer you live to the downtown city center or the University, the higher the rent.
The costs can also be significantly reduced by sharing accommodation, with rent and the costs of Internet, groceries, furniture being shared.
