What you need to know about your tuition, fees, and payments

If you apply to study in Canada, in order to obtain a study permit, you must have sufficient resources and be self-reliant financially. As an international student, you are not eligible for Ontario provincial financial aid and many other forms of financial assistance, which may be available to Canadian students.

Do I need to work while I study?

You are eligible to work both on and off campus should you meet the requirements set out by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Please contact a qualified ICCRC accredited Canadian representative nearest to you for further information, or visit the Citizenship and Immigration website.

Tuition fees

Tuition costs range from $11,000 to $20,000 annually, depending on the program you choose. All fees are in Canadian funds and include mandatory health insurance.

Guidelines for tuition fees are set by the Ministry of Colleges and Universities (MCU), which also regulates the policy for refunds and the incidental fees that may be charged by Cambrian College. A complete fee schedule is available to you before the confirmation of the acceptance deadline.
