Work rights during studies
There are two types of work rights that students may be eligible for while studying in Canada – On campus and Off Campus.
Students can work on campus at the institution in which they are enrolled without work permit if they are full time student, holding a valid study permit, at an eligible institution.
A student can apply for an off campus work permit if he/she has been a full-time student, with a valid study permit, at one of the institutions authorized by the canadian government. in addition, the student must have been a full-time student for at least 6 of the 12 months prior to applying for the work permit and must have achieved satisfactory academic standing.
For both on campus employment and the off campus work permit, students can work up to 20 hours per week during study sessions and full time during vacations.
