International Students in Canada Will Be Allowed to Work Over 20 Hours Per Week Off-Campus

Updated: Nov 17



International students who are in Canada and have off-campus work authorization on their study permit will be allowed to work off-campus over 20 hours per week From November 15, 2022, until December 31, 2023.


Those foreign nationals who have already submitted a study permit application as of October 7, 2022, will also benefit from this policy if IRCC approves their application.


Generally, with a valid Canadian Study Permit, international students may be eligible to work for an employer outside the campus of the educational institution up to 20 hours per week during regular academic sessions, and full-time during scheduled breaks, such as the winter and summer holidays or spring break.


However, effective November 15, 2022, until December 31, 2023, Canada allows eligible international students to work over 20 hours per week while class is in session to help relieve Canada's labour shortages.


According to Statistics Canada, Canada’s unemployment rate fell to 5.2 percent in September, down from 5.4 percent in August.
