Cost of Living in Canada

Cost of living in Canada and tuition fees are less compared to other countries as most universities are government-funded. Each university decides upon its tuition fee and there is also a wide range within the same province. Though foreigners have to pay more fees than their Canadian counterparts, the government funding makes it possible for international students to study in Canada. If a student opts for scholarships and financial assistance, then the cost of living gets considerably lowered.
