Off-Campus Work Permit Status
To keep your work permit, you must remain a full-time student at a participating institution and continue to obtain satisfactory academic results. If you are no longer a full-time student, if you move to a non-participating institution, or if you do not maintain satisfactory academic results, you must return your work permit immediately to a local Citizenship and Immigration Canada office.
It is illegal for you to work in Canada with an invalid work permit. The work permit will be invalid if you do not meet the eligibility requirements of the Off-Campus Work Permit Program.
If you return your work permit to a local Citizenship and Immigration Canada office because you have become ineligible for the program for any of the reasons mentioned above, you may reapply to the program at a later date if you become eligible again.
If you do not return your work permit to a local Citizenship and Immigration Canada office, you will be found to be “non-compliant.” This could have a negative impact on your current stay in Canada and any applications you make to come to Canada in the future. You may be denied entry to Canada in the future and could further require a document known as a temporary resident permit.
