Work Permits for Students FAQs

I am an international student in Canada. Can I work while studying?

Yes. You can work in Canada while studying and after you graduate, through Citizenship and Immigration Canada's work permit programs for international students. Students may qualify for the on-campus, off-campus or post graduate work permit programs.

As an international student, can I work in Canada without a work permit?

No. You must have the appropriate work permit in order to work in Canada either during or after your studies. However, as an exception, you may work on campus without a work permit.

Can I apply for a job off campus before I get my off-campus work permit?

Yes, but you must have a valid Off-Campus Work Permit before beginning to work off-campus.

Can I work in any type of job under the Off-Campus Work Permit Program?

You can work in any type of job under the Off-Campus Work Permit Program. However, you must continue to meet the requirements of the program, including full-time status and maintaining satisfactory academic standing, in order to maintain your eligibility for the program.

Can I work as many hours as I want, once I get my off-campus work permit?

No. Once you get your off-campus work permit, you can work up to 20 hours per week while classes are in session. However, during scheduled breaks such as the summer or winter holidays and spring break, you are allowed to work full-time.

    We have used Akrami & Associates for all of our immigration needs. They have never let us down and we couldn’t be happier. They took care of us from start to finish with little effort on our part. An excellent group of legal professionals.

    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!

    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.
