Working in Canada
Working in CANADA during studies:
Many Universities and Colleges encourage you and connect you with companies with who you can work during your holidays. Keep in touch with the career service unit at the University/College early on!
a) Work On Campus in Canada: Students may work up to 20 hours per week for the University/College they are attending. Typical on-campus jobs might include working in a cafeteria or working in the Athletic Centre. These jobs are, however, scarce and usually on a first come, first served basis. There are jobs available for only a few students each semester and you shouldn’t count on getting an on-campus job during your first semester. Usually, all the jobs are filled by students who apply during the previous semester. You don’t need a work permit to work on campus.
b) Work Off Campus in Canada: You may qualify to work off campus without a work permit. If you qualify, your study permit will allow you to work for a total of 20 hours per week and during vacations a maximum of 40 hours per week.
c) Spouse Work permit: Your spouse may apply for an open work permit (which means they need not have a job offer or a labour market opinion from service Canada) if you are a full time student and have a valid study permit. Work permits of Spouse are valid for the same period of time as your study permit.
d) Internship (Co-op) Work in Canada: Many Colleges and Universities at the undergraduate and graduate level have a Co-op option within their course curriculum which allows students to gain valuable work experience in line of their studies. You must apply for a co-operative education work permit for the same after you have got a study permit while you are studying at the college. The International student centres/advisors at the University / College where you are studying help you in this case.
Work after your studies:
To work in Canada you must apply for Post Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP). A student is allowed to stay back in the country for the length of your program upto a maximum of 3 years to look for a job and work full-time Over 90% of Canada’s college graduates are employed in their field of study within six months after graduation and 93% of employers are satisfied with graduates.

We are proud that we could help our students get into some of the top universities in Canada
Thank you ILW for the wonderful start to the UOT in Canada for my Bachelors in Life Sciences.
I would like to give a big THUMBS UP to Vishal and Rupali. It has been a great experience working with Vishal and his team. They are very patient and always just a call or a whats app away. Rupali has always been very helpful and stays calm and composed no matter how much I panicked. They are always there to help you but you have to take an initiative as well and liaison continuously. I did not have to go to the office again once I paid the fees. Vishal has always been transparent and upfront and always pushed me to do my best. I would highly recommend ILW. These people know what they are doing! I genuinely thank you 🙂 from the bottom of my heart Vishal and RUPALI!!
First of all hats off to Hafeezan Ma’am for making me feel this difficult application process like a piece of cake. She answered all my doubts with such ease and patience which is a remarkable thing. Moreover ILW made my dream come true. Also a big thank you to Vishal Sir for his support and help. Finally I will cherish this endeavour forever in my life. Thank you to the entire team of ILW.
The most important part was that I had applied by myself to Canada before taking the service of ILW Education Consultants. I did not get any offers but after I used their help, here I am at the No. 1 University in Canada. Its a dream!
