International Students in Canada
International students in Canada are excellent at developing their careers in Canada and staying permanently. Therefore, the decision you have already made to study in Canada places you in a unique position.
Work while studying
Your Canadian study permit doesn’t just endow you with the right to attend university or college. It also offers you the freedom to work off-campus for up to 20 hours per week during typical academic sessions and full-time during scheduled academic breaks.
This opportunity usually is not afforded to your counterparts who chose to study in other countries, such as the United States. It permits you to earn some money to finance your ongoing studies and tenancy costs while providing you with associations in the local labor market. These professional networks could direct to landing a fantastic job upon graduation.
Bring family members to join you in Canada
The government of Canada, not to mention the university or college you are attending, wishes you to be comfortable while studying in Canada. Hence, you can have your spouse/common-law partner join you in Canada, as well as any dependent children. In addition, your spouse/partner can apply for an open work permit, permitting them to come to Canada and work for any employer, while your children may also join you.
In addition, you can also look into including other family members, such as parents and siblings, who visit you in Canada.
Acquire a Post-Graduation Work Permit upon graduation
Under the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program, you can get a work permit valid for up to three years, counting on the duration of your study program.
- No job offer is required.
- Work with any employer across Canada and switch jobs when you want to.
- Get that all-important Canadian work experience as you work towards acquiring permanent residence.
Many international graduates use the PGWP to step into a successful career in Canada and towards Canadian permanent residence.
Gain valuable Canadian work experience
Many Canadian economic immigration programs set an effective priority on applicants’ work experience in Canada. As a graduate who has already joined the Canadian labor market, you have confirmed that you are an asset to the country. You can be trusted, intelligent, apprised, and get along with colleagues — so of course, Canada wants you to stay around longer than just a few years.
While working in Canada, you can make contacts that will help you throughout your career. So, your Canadian work experience is likely to prove invaluable across the board.
Discover your pathway to permanent residence
There are probably more pathways to Canadian permanent residence than you think. For example, did you know that some provinces allow confident graduates from institutions in other regions to apply to their particular Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)? It’s true.
And did you know that the federal government also provides multiple pathways to permanent residence? That’s true too.
Make sure you have a plan in place for making this critical transition and get assistance if you’re unsure of all your potential options.
Secure permanent resident status, and ultimately Canadian citizenship
This is the ultimate goal of many, if not most, international students and graduates in Canada. The permanent resident status grants several rights, including the right to live and work anywhere in Canada without securing a work permit. It is also a step along the way to Canadian citizenship.
Canada is looking to its cohort of international students and graduates to become its leading newcomers. You have learned the language(s), got the experience and the education, and proven that you are worthy of joining the Canadian family. So, why not aim for the top and have permanent residence and citizenship as your ultimate goal?
