Here is some approximate tuition from across Canada:
I'm just listing some example websites so you know what to look for -- just find similar pages at the schools you are interested in:
Victoria -- Tuition Info: http://web.finance.uvic.ca/tuition/fees.php
Financial Support Page: http://www.uvic.ca/science/physics/pros ... ection0-29
UBC -- http://www.phas.ubc.ca/graduate-program ... al-support
Toronto -- http://www.provost.utoronto.ca/link/stu ... ;%20title=
; about same funding level as UBC
Queen's -- This is my current school. It has the highest tuition+fees rate in Canada (7300/year, double that for internationals). They also have higher funding though (minimum funding for PhD is $25k/year, Masters is $24k/year, for physics)
McGill -- http://www.physics.mcgill.ca/grads/finance.html
-- lowest funding, but lowest cost (see below) I was offered $18k/year I think.
As for living expenses
Victoria -- not sure
UBC/Vancouver -- most expensive in Canada; but manageable with UBC's funding package if you live with others (or if living with a partner, they have a job)
Toronto -- main campus is in the middle of downtown so it's super expensive to live nearby. not nearly as bad as Vancouver further away though
Kingston -- pretty cheap, as it's a small town, but since it's a University town (~30% of population are students), the landlords take advantage of students and places close to school are crappy and expensive. can get a great deal if you are willing to commute a bit though
Montreal -- definitely the cheapest city in Canada to live in, surprisingly! Their tuition is currently the lowest but so is their funding.
