Alberta Off-Campus Pilot Project

Posted in Off Campus Work Permit

A test project was announced today by Parliamentary Secretary Ed Komarnicki and Minister of Alberta Advanced Education and Technology Doug Horner, which will expand the Off-Campus work permit program to allow students from select private educational institutions in Alberta, Canada to obtain off-campus work permits.

International students attending the select private institutions and enrolling in specific qualifying programs are now eligible to apply.

The institutions included Ambrose University College, Canadian University College, Concordia University College of Alberta, St. Mary's University College, Taylor University College and Seminary, and The King's University College.

Previously, only international students attending public universities could apply.

"This pilot will allow more international students studying in Canada to work off-campus, to contribute to our economy, and to gain Canadian work experience," Komarnicki said, speaking on behalf of Immigration Minister Diane Finley.

"The expansion of the Off-Campus Work Permit Program provides more international students with an opportunity to participate in one of the most robust labour markets in Canada," said Horner. "I am confident that their experiences will convince many of them to establish careers in Alberta following graduation."

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!
