Help Centre what do you need help with?

Can I work as many hours as I want if I’m eligible to work off-campus?

No. If you’re eligible to work off-campus, you can work up to 20 hours per week while classes are in session. During scheduled breaks, like the summer or winter holidays and spring break, you’re allowed to work more than 20 hours.

You can only start working in Canada when you start your study program. You can’t work before your studies begin. Find out more about who can work off-campus, including part-time students and students on authorized leave.

If you’ve completed your study program, you may be able to work full-time.
