Working on Campus
Students can work on campus. However, job opportunities are limited on campus and often students have to seek employment off-campus.
Working off Campus
The Off-Campus Work Permit Program allows certain foreign students to work off campus while completing their studies. To qualify, you must be a full-time student enrolled at a participating publicly funded post-secondary educational institution or in an approved program at an eligible privately funded institution.
Please note that not all programs offered by private post-secondary educational institutions qualify.
To work off campus, you must apply for a work permit. Do not begin to work off campus until you have received your work permit. The work permit authorizes you to work up to 20 hours per week during regular academic sessions, and full time during scheduled breaks (for example, winter and summer holidays, and spring break).
Co-op and internship programs
For some academic programs, work experience is part of the curriculum. Foreign students who wish to participate in a co-op or internship program must apply for a work permit as well as a study permit.
To be eligible for a work permit, you must meet the following conditions:
You must have a valid study permit.
Your intended employment must be an essential part of your program of study in Canada.
Your employment must be part of your academic program, certified by a letter from a responsible academic official of the institution.
Your co-op or internship employment cannot form more than 50 percent of the total program of study.
Immigration options for international students
There are several programs available to candidates who may be interested in immigrating to Canada after their studies
International students can apply for permanent residency in Canada under the new Canada Experience Class. This program allows international students who graduated in Canada to apply to stay permanently.
The government now recognizes that students who have spent years in Canada, studying and working, have the qualities to make a successful transition from temporary to permanent residence. They are more familiar with Canadian society and can contribute to the Canadian economy in a more positive way.
To be eligible to apply for permanent residence in Canada under the Canada Experience Class (CEC), you must have completed a program of study at a Canadian post-secondary educational institution. There are also specific work experience and language requirements.
Some provinces have their own programs that are designed to facilitate the immigration of certain students without the need for an employer or work experience.
