Work as a Student


An international student in Canada gains exposure and work experience in the Canadian workplace market. Your working hours and limitations depend on which stage your study is:

On-Campus work: You are allowed to work on campus for up to 20 hours a week without having to apply for a work permit. However, you need to have a Social Insurance Number (SIN) before you start working.
Off-Campus: As a full-time international student, you can work part-time (20 hours a week) outside the campus for any employer and full-time (37.5 hours) during your semester breaks. An open work permit is required to work off campus. However, this work experience will not be considered for your future immigration application purposes.
Co-op / Internship: If your program of study includes an internship or a co-op, you can apply for a co-op work permit. This work permit limits you from working at any other place apart from your course curriculum.
Post Graduate Work Permit: Once you have completed your degree/diploma or certificate from a designated learning institution, you are eligible to apply for a Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP). This PGWP allows you to work full time for a certain period of time for any employer. This is an open work permit. The duration of the work permit depends on the duration of your full-time study. Like, you will get a PGWP of one year for a one-year program, and a PGWP of three years for a two- or three-year program. Work experience gained on a PGWP may help you towards your application for your Permanent residency through Express Entry.
Dependent Work Permit: If your spouse accompanies you for your studies, then they are eligible for an open work permit in Canada.
