International Students Able to Work More While Studying

Let’s be honest, going to school in another country is expensive.

It is worth it?.. yep!

Could it change your life?.. Yes!

If you are on the fence about traveling to other country because you are only able to work part time, here is your sign!

International Students 20-hour Work Cap Lifted On Nov. 15, the federal government will remove the ceiling of 20 hours of off-campus work per week while classes are in session. The pilot, in effect until Dec. 31 of next year, is an effort to address the country’s labour shortages. What does this mean for you? As an international student, you are able to work more to gain more experience in your developing field and/or make more money to enjoy your time while studying in Canada.
