International students in Canada are in an excellent position to develop their career in Canada and stay permanently. The decision you have already made to study in Canada places you in a unique position.
Get the most out of your time in Canada
As an international student, you can take full advantage of the opportunities offered by Canada.
- Work while studying
- Bring family members to join you in Canada
- Obtain a Post-Graduation Work Permit upon graduation
- Gain invaluable Canadian work experience
- Discover your pathway to permanent residence
- Secure permanent resident status, and ultimately Canadian citizenship
The CanadaVisa Study Hub is designed for prospective and current international students and post-graduate workers in Canada. Members can access a range of tools and resources to assist them in studying, working, and settling in Canada permanently. Current international students and post-graduate workers in Canada also get access to the monthly CanadaVisa Scholarship Contest, for a chance to win $500.
Work while studying
Your Canadian study permit doesn’t just grant you the right to attend university or college, it also grants you the right to work off-campus for up to 20 hours per week during regular academic sessions, and full-time during scheduled academic breaks.
This opportunity is generally not afforded to your peers who decided to study in other countries, such as the United States. It allows you to make some money to fund your ongoing studies and living costs, all the while giving you connections in the local labour market. These professional networks could be the lead into landing a great job upon graduation.
