Canadian Students

Every year MOSMA welcomes students from rural Manitoba and many provinces across Canada. We believe Winnipeg offers our students a great opportunity to indulge in a vibrant arts community, which expresses itself through many festivals and events throughout the year. Having students from various provinces adds a very unique element to our learning environment, as we know that each individual brings with them their own experiences and knowledge.

Winnipeg's cost of living is affordable and our standard of living is high, this allows students to benefit from reasonable tuition costs, rent, transportation, as well as monthly utilities and recreation.

      • + Tax Rebate

        Live & Save in Manitoba

        As an incentive for graduates to live and gain experience here in Manitoba while saving on their educational fees, The Manitoba Tuition Fee Income Tax Rebate Program was introduced as a means to help graduates of post-secondary institutions with a 60% income tax rebate on their eligible tuition fees.

        You are eligible to participate in this program if you successfully graduate from a recognized institution with a degree, certificate, or diploma and you live and pay taxes in Manitoba. If you move from Manitoba, you are no longer eligible for this program. However, if you return to Manitoba within 10 years of graduating, you are still entitled to make a claim.

        New to this program is a 5% tax credit advance on your tuition fees while you still attend school. Amounts claimed as an advanced, will reduce the Manitoba Tuition Fee Income Tax Rebate earned following graduation.

        Visit the Tuition Fee Income Tax Rebate Program for more information.
