Housing

Rent in Canada varies widely depending on where you live. You can generally expect to find the highest rent costs in the larger cities (Vancouver, Toronto). Living outside of the city will get you a similar accommodation but with lower rent costs. For example, a small apartment in a bigger city will cost anywhere from 850 CAD to 1800 CAD, but a similar apartment located outside the city will run between 750 CAD to 1000 CAD.

Schooling

Canada doesn't have a national system governing education. Instead, regulations and policies are left up to the 13 individual provinces. Parents need not fear, however---even public schools in Canada are top-notch, so with a little research, you will be assured your child will be getting the best education possible during your stay there.

Typical Costs

Expat students with a residence permit can attend Canadian public schools for free.  Those students who do not have a residence permit will have to pay tuition—this ranges by province/territory and can be anywhere from CAD 8000-14,000.
