See how many hours international students can work in Canada
To be able to meet your living expenses while studying in Canada, international students have the opportunity to work in Canada but there are rules to follow.
Also, working while studying in foreign schools is a great way to gain work experience and acquire social and language skills.
Apart from providing an extra source of income, a part-time job while studying will give international students a competitive edge when searching for full-time employment as a graduate.
However, there are rules that must be followed in terms of the number of hours of work that is allowed, where international students can work, work permits and other documents required.
Note that if international students work when they are not allowed to, they will be in breach of their visa conditions and may face deportation.
If you are interested in studying and working in a foreign country, here are some countries that grant permits to students to work while studying as well as criteria students need to meet.
