Estimated costs for privately arranged accommodation may range from $500-$1200 per month, depending on individual living situation and location.
George Brown College's free Housing Services offer support in helping students find off-campus housing. This will be an advantage for you as it generally takes about 2-3 weeks to find an apartment in Toronto.
