I am a Canadian Citizen but I am living abord now due to my parent's work.

My parent have applied the non residency status while we are living outside Canada.
I am planning to study univeristy in Canada a few yers later.

I wonder do i neeed to pay international fees due to I am living aboard for a period of time as a non-residency.

Does it vary for different universities or will it be the same fees (international or normal) through out?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this information.

As you may already know, each school (college or university) can decide on admission requirements and select which students to accept.

Generally, you can apply to a college or university in 1 of these categories:

"Domestic" student - You are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

International or "Foreign" student - You are not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. You will need a study permit.

As you may already know, international students must pay a higher tuition rate for college and university programs. In some cases, the tuition is double or triple the amount that domestic students pay.

As you can see, the criteria is whether or not you are a Canadian Citizen or a Permanent Resident. It does not state whether or not you are a resident for tax purposes as the criteria.

You can find some additional and helpful information in our Settlement.Org How do I apply for admission to a university or college? article.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
