Hiring an International Student

Hiring an international student or graduate has many benefits to an employer. Not only are they bringing on an educated employee, but they’re providing a student and/or graduate with the opportunity to heighten their experience and appreciation of Canada, making it a worthwhile investment in the labour force of the future.

International students may qualify to work off-campus while in school for up to 20 hours per week.

Post-graduation work permit program

After graduation, an international graduate may be eligible to stay and work in Canada by applying for a post-graduation work permit.

The post-graduation work permit program is designed to provide international students who have graduated from a participating Canadian post-secondary institution with valuable Canadian work experience for up to three years after graduation.
