It costs money to go to school, but getting an education is an investment in your future. There are supports and resources available to help you pay for your education.
What will school cost?
For high school, you’ll need money for living expenses and some program costs.
For post–secondary education, you’ll need to pay for living expenses, tuition, books and supplies. How much this will cost depends on
- where you go to school
- what you take
- how long your program is
If you’re on your own, you may be able to get support for school and training.

If you’ve been in care or had children’s services status, you may qualify for funding for school even if you haven’t had recent contact with your caseworker. That’s a good reason to get in touch with your caseworker.
