Work Hour Restrictions Removed For International Students
Today we bring great news for Canada’s international students.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has temporarily removed the present working students were hours restrictions for Canadian international students. Generally, international permitted to work less than 20 hours per week off-campus. However, this rule is about to change for individuals who are working and studying in Canada.
How Is This Policy A Win-Win Situation?
By implementing this legislation, Canada’s international students will be allowed to work, providing more employees for the nation’s economic growth post-pandemic.
This temporary modification recognizes the vital contribution of the 500,000 plus international students who can resolve the country’s labour shortage while pursuing their academics.
Holders of study permits must handle their work and study responsibilities. They are not entitled to off-campus work if they discontinue studying or reduce their course load to study part-time.
Most international students are allowed to work on and/or off campus; this approval is distinctly noted on their Canadian study permit. As per IRCC, more than half of post-secondary international students in Canada reported working while attending school.
As a pilot initiative of IRCC, the processing of study permit extensions will be automated from this month.
Since authorization to study is already received by candidates, the pilot program applications have a consistent rate of high acceptance.
To improve customer service, the trial will include a select sample of candidates who could have their study visa extensions managed swiftly.
In case of the pilot program’s success, it will be extended to quicken the processing and free up officers to address more complicated applications.
