Whether you’re hoping to work while you study, or you want to start your career in Canada, there are plenty of work opportunities for international students in Canada.
Working while you study
If you’re enrolled in a full-time academic, professional, or vocational training program at a designated institution, you can work up to 20 hours a week without having to get a work permit. And that’s during school. During the summers or breaks, you can work full-time.
Internships and co-op programs
If your training program requires a co-op program or internship, you’ll be able to take part. But remember—you’ll need to get a co-op permit first. We can help with this.
Working after graduation
When you’re done your program, you can apply for a post-graduation work permit that will allow you to work for up to 3 years in Canada.
