Most international students are permitted to work off campus. See eligibility and conditions for participation.
You can work
Part-time international students are not permitted to work unless they are in the final semester of their program. In that case, you may work up to 20 hours per week off campus.
You will also not be able to work during a holiday listed in the university calendar following the part-time session (for example, if you are studying part-time during the fall term, you will not be able to work during the holiday season).
You may work both on campus and off campus, as long as you meet the requirements for both government programs.
If you have met all the requirements of your program but haven’t yet received your proof of graduation letter, you can work off campus on a part-time basis.
Once you receive your attestation, you will no longer be permitted to work in Canada — unless you have applied for a post-graduation work permit. In the latter case, you will be eligible to work full-time while you wait for your work permit to arrive, even if your study permit has expired (implied status).
