Fees for the Program

We expect fees for the International Masters for Health Leadership to be between $55,000 - 58,000 CDN (we are working with the university to finalize the amount, this amount includes university ancillary charges which are not known precisely at the start of the program). Billing is payable in 5 installments over the duration of the program.

These fees cover instruction during the five modules, required books and other pedagogical materials including self-learning materials, and advising. In addition, fees cover the retreat during the first week of the Reflective Mindset, a continental breakfast and most lunches during modules. Fees do not include travel and living expenses.

  • A non-refundable deposit of $5,000 CDN is required upon receipt of the notification of acceptance letter, in order to reserve a place in the program.
  • The non-refundable deposit will be applied to the first semester of registration. One month prior to a term beginning, participants will receive an email to pay their bill.
  • The e-bill will be based on the registration for the term and can vary depending on the number of credits assigned to that term.


All travel is to be arranged and paid by participants.

Living Expenses

Living expenses are estimated at $18,000 CDN for the entire program, unless you reside in Montreal. Expenses can vary depending on the type of lodging chosen.

This covers hotel, meals, local transport, telephone calls, and is paid by participants or their sponsors. Many students team up to share accommodations during the program.

*Please note that this curriculum is not eligible for financial support programs offered by the Quebec government’s Aide financière aux études, but may be eligible for private loans depending on your residency status.
