Financial Considerations


If accepted into our Graduate program, students are guaranteed the following minimum stipends:

  •  M.Sc. or M.A.Sc.: $24,250 p.a. for a two year period
  •  Ph.D. : $25,450 p.a. for a four year period

The stipend is made up of funding you receive as a TA (teaching assistant), as well as internal fellowships and bursaries and support from your supervisor.

The amounts cited above represent the minimum; stipends can range up to ~$30,000 if students are awarded external scholarships (NSERC, OGS, etc).

Incoming students holding an NSERC, PGSM and PGSD receive an additional $5000 for their first year, on top of their regular stipend.

Graduate tuition fees for domestic (Canadian and landed immigrant) students are typically ~$6000. International student fees are ~$11,400. The department will provide a tuition bursary of $5,000 to international students to bring their fees to approximately the same level as domestic students.
