OTTAWA TO LIFT 20-HOUR WEEKLY WORK CAP FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

The Government of Canada has announced the temporary lifting of the 20-hour-per-week cap on the number of hours that eligible post-secondary students are allowed to work off-campus while class is in session. From November 15, 2022, until December 31, 2023, international students who are in Canada and who have off-campus work authorization on their study permit will not be restricted by the 20-hour-per-week rule. Foreign nationals who have already submitted a study permit application, as of today, will also be able to participate in this temporary change, provided their application is approved.

This move by the Government of Canada comes in addition to other measures meant to assist international students and recent graduates. This includes: 

– A transition period for those studying online from abroad.  

– An opportunity for those with expired or expiring post-graduation work permits to get an additional 18-month open work permit.

CSA will continue to be a strong advocate for Ontario’s international students in terms of improving their education, finances, work-life, and residency.
