Canada welcomes over 200,000 students every year into the country. Studying in Canada is an exciting and rewarding experience for international students. The Canadian education system is based on quality and excellence, which translates to better labour opportunities for the students once they complete their program. Further obtaining the study permit and consecutively the post-graduate work permit is one of the most successful ways to obtain Canadian permanent residence under the Canada immigration Express Entry program.
In order to apply for a Study Permit, foreign students must enroll and be accepted into a Canadian educational institution, specifically a Designated Learning Institution (DLI). Upon acceptance into the DLI, a Letter of Acceptance will be issued to the student which will then be used for the Study Permit Application.
Additionally, there are few more requirements to be met like financial proof, health, no criminality, etc.
Work while you study
Students enrolled in a full-time program may work on-campus or off-campus without a work permit. Certain conditions apply, depending on the location of work, and type of program the student is enrolled in.
Post-Graduation Work Permit
Once you have graduated from an eligible program at a Canadian post-secondary institution, you may qualify to apply for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program. This program offers graduates up to a three-year open work permit which will allow you to earn valuable work experience. You do not need to have a job offer to get an open work permit.
Additionally, Canada allows foreign students who have completed their studies in Canada with a valid study permit, and have gained a certain amount of work experience within Canada to apply for Canada immigration under the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) for Canadian permanent residence.
Bringing Family to Canada
You may bring your spouse, common-law partner, and dependent children to Canada to be with you while you study. Your spouse or common-law partner will receive an Open Work Permit for the duration of your studies. The open work permit will allow your spouse or partner to work for any employer within Canada.
Spouse/Common-law partner Open Work Permit
Spouses/Common-law Partners of International students studying in Canada are eligible to apply for an Open Work Permit which allows them to work for any employer in Canada in any job. The duration of the work permit will be the same as the spouse’s study permit (visa).
