You can get a world-class education at a very low price.
I went to McGill University in Montreal, mostly because my family lived there at the time. It was convenient, and I was clueless. I didn’t apply anywhere else. I just showed up and handed in my application. At that time, I had no idea how highly-ranked McGill was worldwide. My tuition was measured in hundreds of dollars. Today, I think it is probably a few thousand, but not tens of thousands. I went to Caltech for grad school, and that’s when I discovered how good McGill was. It had prepared me so well, I was exempted from three of the courses and was able to take the more advanced versions (Ae 201 versus Ae 101 for example.)
University of Toronto is also a very highly-ranked Canadian school.
