Work Opportunities

There are several opportunities for full-time international students to work in Canada. 

Working On Campus

You may work on-campus, if you are a full time student. However, Assiniboine has very, very few jobs for students.

Co-Op/Internship/Practicum (If the work is required in your academic program)

If your program has a compulsory, paid or unpaid work practicum or cooperative education component, you are entitled to work during the co-op/work experience period. You must apply for a work permit for this period.

Working Off-Campus

Most full-time international students in a post-secondary or advanced diploma program can use their study permit to work part-time in any type of employment for up to 20 hours per week and full-time during breaks. Check your study permit; it should include a condition allowing you to work part-time. Please visit www.cic.gc.ca for more information. 

Post-Graduate Work Permit

Students who have completed a program of at least eight months may be eligible for a Post-Graduation Work Permit that allows them to work after program completion. Please visit www.cic.gc.ca for more information. 

Volunteer Work

You may volunteer in Canadian organizations. Many organizations have volunteers who provide a variety of services. These positions are unpaid, and volunteers may not do the work of regular paid employees. You do not need a work permit for these positions.
