Working in Canada
Under certain conditions, you may be able to work in Canada. Students who do not have a study permit are not eligible to work in Canada. Provided you hold a study permit, you can work on the campus of any publicly funded, degree granting institution that you are attending (no separate work permit is required). The employer can be the institution, the faculty, a student organisation, a private business or a private contractor providing services to the campus. This provision also allows for working as a graduate, research or teaching assistant at an ‘off campus site’ that has a formal affiliation with the institution (e.g. teaching hospitals, clinics or research institutes).
Full Time Students
Some full-time students who have obtained a study permit may also be eligible to apply for an off-campus work permit that allows them
to work for any employer. They can work for up to 20 hours per week during the term, and full-time during holidays.
