Full- time international students can work for up to 20 hours during their study and full-time during scheduled breaks. Spouse of international students can apply for an open work permit to financially support their spouse during their study. The work permit will be valid for any employer for the duration of study. No LMIA is required for these work permit. After graduation, students can apply for a Post- Graduate Work Permit, which enables a student to work for any employer.
