If you are an international student looking to work in Canada there are several things you should consider.
You may require a permit to work:
- off-campus part-time;
- during a co-op or internship placement;
- as research assistant;
- in some volunteer positions; or
- as a post-graduate student.
The criteria may vary depending on your status and your employment plans. Each post-secondary institution has an International Student Office with advisors to help you. It is important that you confirm your plans with them before you begin any form of paid or volunteer work.
