Food depends on what you eat. Fast food is a lot cheaper but quality food a lot more expensive. I did not use my cell phone over there as the cell phone function is replaced by MSN. And for all other calls I used Skypeout (Function in skype where you can call wireline phones very cheap, u only need internet and a headset) Housing is around 500 CAD/month. Nightlife: A beer is around 4-4,5 CAD, order pitcher for 13 CAD. Cheapest is to take a car with several people. Fuel is very cheap compared to europe. Pay attention where the US highways collect toll. Internet is around 30$/months

Don't expecet too much from canadian banking services. They take money for using banking cards and don't provide real online banking. You won't need a bank account there if you have a credit card and a banking card with maestro. Always withdraw great amounts (600CAD) to keep transaction costs low. University material (Case and Textbooks)is expensive like hell, but you cannot do anything about it as they are produced for you personally. Don't buy stuff in variety stores, they are also very expensive. If you smoke, buy cigarets on trips to the us they are cheaper and much better (1 Package Canadian ones are 7,25CAD)

THE VARIENCIES OF PRICES VARY A LOT FROM ONE COUNTRY OT ANOTHER. IN CANADA, FOOD WAS PRETTY INEXPENSIVE, EXCEPT PERHAPS ON CAMPUS. AS TO THE OTHER SUBJECT, I SPENT MORE TRAVELING BECAUSE OF THE OPOPRTUNITIES THAT WERE OFFERED TO ME SUCH AS A 5 DAY TRIP TO THE ALGONQUIN PARK, OR CHICAGO, AND SO ON.

Canada is more expensive than the Netherlands and on an exchange you want to see a lot from the country and meet people. This costs money.
