International Students: News and Updates

New policies have been put in place that provide significant advantages for international students. As of the 15th of November 2022, current and future international students will be authorized to work off-campus without any restriction. As it currently stands, all international students and their employers must abide by a 20-hour-per-week cap rule.

The Minister of Immigration, The Honorable Sean Fraser, announced the lifting of the 20-hour-per-week cap due to labor shortages in Canada. This measure will provide many international students with a greater opportunity to gain valuable work experience in Canada and will increase the availability of workers to sustain Canada’s post-pandemic growth. With more than 500,000 international students already in Canada available to potentially work additional hours, this temporary change reflects the important role international students can play in addressing our labor shortage while continuing to pursue their studies. Study permit holders are still expected to balance their study and work commitments, as those who stop studying or reduce course loads to only study part-time are not eligible to work off-campus.

Internationals students should use this opportunity to gain full-time work experience in Canada as it will speed up and increase their chances of gaining permanent residency. This new measure should increase demand in Canada for students and would therefore be important to begin your application process as soon as possible to avoid delays.

 

There are many ways to work in Canada temporarily and eventually gain permanent residency. Contact our attorneys and legal team for further information!
